- Moxian praised for new joint venture strategy to help penetrate key markets in China
- Crystal Equity Research projects Moxian’s sales reaching $2.3 million in FY2018
- Moxian adding three to its board of directors, including Liu Shu Juan, CEO of Shewn International Group, Inc.
Moxian, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: MOXC) price target of $5.25 remains unchanged in the August 15, 2017, update report from Crystal Equity Research LLC (http://dtn.fm/hmV0h), which published its initial report on the company in January 2017. Crystal classified an investment in the company as a ‘speculative buy’ and made positive note of the firm’s joint venture with Shewn International Group in Shanghai. It also said it anticipates revising its revenue estimates for Moxian upward when the Shewn transaction is formalized.
Moxian is an integrated platform operator in the midst of converting its unpaid platforms to paid. Its joint venture with upscale wine distributor Shewn — expected by Crystal Equity to be finalized by the end of September 2017 — calls for Shewn to use Moxian+ Merchant App technology. It uses a UnionPay module processing system and offers Moxian’s Mo-Points redemption plan. In return, Shewn offers Moxian quicker and less costly market penetration and an additional revenue stream. Moxian will earn a fee on Shewn’s digital sales processed on the Moxian+ platform.
“Execution on the Shewn International joint venture should put greater certainty into the Moxian story, providing the foundation for greater investor confidence and a higher valuation of the shares. We view it as an important catalyst for valuation. In our view, the stock provides an interesting play on China’s e-commerce industry” the report said.
Moxian has already signed a memorandum of understanding with Shewn. The research company quoted James Mengdong Tan, CEO of Moxian, as saying that he anticipates 30-40 more joint venture possibilities in the pipeline. Crystal Equity also liked Moxian’s lower cash usage in the quarter ended June 2017, resulting from reduced SG&A costs.
According to an 8K SEC filing on August 16, 2017 (http://dtn.fm/9ho1I), Moxian also had a change in its board of directors. It added Chan Fook Meng, Dr. Yu Lin and Liu Shu Juan to the board. Liu, currently the CEO of Shewn International Group, Inc., is also financial controller of Shanghai Shewn Wine Co. Ltd., the main operating company for Shewn in China. At Moxian, Liu will also serve as Moxian’s executive director.
