Adamant DRI Wins $5+ Million Purchase Order from Key Regional Steel Industry Supplier
21 June 2017
Adamant DRI Processing and Minerals Group, a Hebei Province, People's Republic of China based producer and supplier of direct reduced iron (DRI) feedstock for China's steel manufacturing and processing industries, today announced it has secured a supply contract with JiangSu YanCheng YunQiJia Trading Co ("YunQiJia"), a leading processor and supplier of specialized steel to industry bellwethers Nanjing Iron and Steel Group and Jiangyin Xingcheng Special Steel Works.
The purchase order calls for delivery of minimum 25,000 tons, high quality DRI (88%-92% iron content) at prices ranging between 1,400-1,800 RMB/ton (approximately $209-$269/ton) within 2017, potentially generating sales of $5 million.
This is the Company's first substantial order, and booked revenue, since it shut down in 2015 for a coal-to-natural gas power conversion and production overhaul intended to comply with strict Chinese environmental regulation, transforming the Chinese steel industry. This relaunch was previously disclosed in an April 27, 2017 press release from the Company.
YunQiJia operates its own shipping port facility with two 20,000 ton and three 10,000 ton berths, serving as a vital logistical gateway for DRI produced and shipped from the Company's Huaxin facility.
Given today's announcement and a multitude of business development initiatives taking hold, the Company reaffirms its overall business outlook for 2017, which calls for revenue of at least $16 million.
"Since restart of commercial scale production in Q1, our product grade and reliability has risen to a level where we can deliver on orders from larger industry players," commented Mr. Changkui Zhu, Adamant CEO. "This first order since restart of operations in Q1 is an important milestone."
