Cantronic to Provide Kaili City Video Surveillance System for $2.6 Million(November 14, 2011)
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/11 -- Cantronic Systems Inc., ("Cantronic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTS)(PINK SHEETS:CRIXF) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the local China Unicom (one of the three main telecom operators in China) to provide an expansion of the city-wide networked video surveillance system ("Safe City") to Kaili city which is located in China's Guizhou province and subsequent maintenance service totaling RMB 16 million (approximately Canadian $2.6 million). Cantronic will supply and install complete solutions that will network together 200 new surveillance cameras with 1,463 cameras already installed in banks, gas stations and public schools with Kaili city's existing Safe City video surveillance system. Kaili city's existing Safe City system was originally supplied and installed by Cantronic in 2009 and this is its first of many possible expansions. Cantronic would receive payments against deliveries of cameras and software and then progress payments to a total of 90% of the supply and installation contract value of RMB13.4 million (C$2.2m) at completion of installation, expected in about 3 months. The award also includes maintenance service valued at RMB2.6 million ($0.4m) for the 5 years after installation.
This current expansion is a part of the new regional sky net crime prevention video surveillance monitoring system ("Sky Net"). The local Sky Net system is an expanded Safe City program to allow each city's Safe City systems in the South Eastern region of Guizhou Province to be networked together as well as to integrate new and existing cameras in key commercial facilities such as banks, gas stations, schools, hotels, office buildings and residential complexes throughout the region. In this regional Sky
Net system, Cantronic's video networking platform and management software is the key to network such a great number of cameras over such a large area together.
"This project award reflects our experience in providing sophisticated city-wide networked video surveillance systems for China's expanding Safe City and now Sky Net programs. We were initially approached by the local police bureaus to take on this expansion in the beginning of the year which they want to pay us in 3-5 years after completion. We declined to take on the mandate due to payment term issues and finally were able to convince them to work through China Unicom as the primary contractor and financing partner for this project. This allows us to be paid very quickly by China Unicom and have the resources to take on many more such projects together with a key telecom operator in the region. With this new project arrangement model as well as Kaili city being the capital and largest city of the South Eastern region of Guizhou province, we believe we will have the ability to carry on further expansions of this Sky Net program to other 14 cities and counties in the region without the constraints of working capital. There are more than 70 cities in China using Cantronic software solutions with expansion opportunities such as this amounted to $13 billion over the next 9 years," said James Zahn, President and CEO of Cantronic Systems Inc.
