Industries International Announces Acquisition of Unical Enterprises, Inc.

SHENZHEN, China & LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)-- July 29, 2004 -- China-Based Firm To Gain Licensing Rights to Bell Phones by Northwestern Bell Brand Logo through Acquisition, Will Sharpen Focus on Telecom Gear Business

Industries International, Inc. (OTCBB:IDUL) (INDI), a leading manufacturer and distributor of communications-related technology in China, today reported that it has acquired Unical Enterprises, Inc., a worldwide licensee of the Northwestern Bell logo.

The Company said that it believes that the acquisition gives it substantial new market reach, design capability and a valuable brand for its core business -- the development and sale of terminal communications products such as corded, cordless and wireless phones. In the transaction, INDI will issue approximately 70 million of its shares of common stock in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding stock of Unical. Unical is valued at $52.5 million according to a valuation report by Malcolm & Associates Appraisal. The closing price for Unical is set at $37.5 million and this amount will be paid by newly issued INDI common shares with each share priced at the average closing cost of the 5 days prior to the closing day of the acquisition, or approximately $0.538 per share.

Deal Reflects Telecom-Based Strategy


"With the purchase of Unical, we believe the Company has taken a big step forward in executing its growth plan," said Dr. Kit Tsui, INDI's Chairman and CEO. "The transaction serves to focus our resources and attention on our most promising business. In the consumer telephone area we believe that the Company will be able to grow rapidly by selling products by keeping up with consumer needs."

Company to Be Renamed China Telephone

In May, 2004, INDI's Board of Directors approved a change in its corporate name to China Telephone, Inc. The Company said it has chosen its new corporate identity both to give investors and customers a more precise description of its products and services, and to reflect its strategic decision to focus on the manufacturing and sale of telephone products.
