BEIJING -- (Marketwire) -- 04/23/12 -- Rotoblock Corp. (OTCBB: RTBC) announced consolidated net income for the year ended December 31, 2011 of $764,368 compared to a net loss of $715,391 for the year ended December 31, 2010.
The increase in the consolidated net income was the result of the closing of the November 2011 Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Share Exchange between Rotoblock and daifuWaste Management Holding Limited ('daifuWaste'), whereby daifuWaste became the wholly-owned subsidiary of Rotoblock. Newly appointed CEO Andrew Schneider sees potential for growth with increasing regulation of medical waste in China and around the world.
'China's health policies and new five-year plan have renewed its commitment to address medical waste treatment. This along with the significant growth worldwide in the medical industry over the past few years are driving this market,' said Schneider.
The Chinese Ministry of Health issued a warning recently on medical waste and its health risks with plans to increase supervision and management throughout the country. Global Industry Analysts, Inc. recently forecasted that the United States market for medical waste management would reach US$3.5 billion by the year 2017.
'Non-incinerator medical waste treatment offers a safer and more efficient alternative to managing medical waste and Rotoblock is in a good position to capitalize on this new market opportunity,' said Schneider. 'So far this has been a great turn-around year from 2010 to 2011 and as we look forward in 2012, we feel the best opportunity to grow the market will be through acquisition.'
