Ashland Holdings, LLC pursues acquisition and operation of commercial real estate such as self-storage units, apartment buildings, and manufactured housing communities for senior citizens. The subsidiary’s portfolio contains a 1,400-square-foot corporate office building, an 800 square-foot warehouse for LiL Marc operations, and two adjacent parcels of land.

In his description of the operations of its Ashland subsidiary, President, Denis Espinoza notes the fact that company executives have significant investment positions in the company and how the characteristics of their owned assets affects acquisition potential.

Espinoza states, "We are very fortunate that we were able to – our executives were able – to buy stock in the company and inject some money in; bring some new life into it… By us being able to inject money in the company we were able to acquire real estate in a debt-free manner. That allows us to be aggressive when we’re looking for properties… we walk in the door and it’s amazing what you can do with cash nowadays."

LiL Marc, Inc. primarily deals with the manufacturing and marketing of training urinals for boys of potty-training age in the United States. Molded to resemble the full sized urinals found in public restrooms, the product is manufactured in proportion to the smaller size of toddlers in training. Together with the roll-out of an ambitious marketing campaign, Great Plains’ management team is building a client list of retailers with physical locations to participate in the broader retail market. While executing its advertising strategy, management sees growth and widespread distribution of the LiL Marc trainer going forward.

Armco Metals Holdings, Inc. (AMCO) Unfazed by Lull in Global Steel Demand

Armco Metals is a 10-year old company operating through five subsidiaries that position the company as a leading player in the sourcing, importing, processing and distribution of quality recycled scrap steel and metal and non-ferrous metal ore in China. Aligned with government initiatives to develop sustainable and environmentally responsible steel, Armco Metals aims to become the largest recycled scrap steel provider in China.

Industry reports show that China is on track to set a record in steel production despite an expected global lag in demand. The World Steel Association (WSA) projects global demand to rise 3.1% in 2014, down from growth of 3.6% last year, before slightly increasing to 3.3% growth in 2015. Armco is positioned to ride-out the lull by focusing specifically on the scrap steel niche, benefitting from government pushes to increase recycled steel consumption to 20% by 2015 as well as the increasing steel demand from developed countries such as the U.S. and Europe, as forecast by the WSA.

In a recent company announcement, Kexuan Yao, chairman and CEO of Armco, referenced the current steel landscape and the company’s strategy to take advantage of the situation, saying "We continue to see progress at our Renewable Metals subsidiary as we work to position our Company for the future. Our efforts have resulted in this important inclusion in the list of approved operators that we believe will pay big dividends down the road as the Government looks to increase industrial efficiency while reducing pollution. China’s scrap industry has been slow to develop due to many producers opting to use less costly and more pollutive production methods. As the government implements these new initiatives, we see steel producers moving to models that more closely resemble that of the U.S. and Europe which should lead to significant need for scrap steel produced by the small circle of companies who are approved by the government to operate in this industry."

As Yao noted above, the company’s efforts in the metal ore market also support continued company growth. Ores sourced by Armco include iron ore, chrome ore, nickel ore and manganese ore. The company has established a distribution network of more than 100 small- and medium-sized steel production companies, as well as some of the government’s large state-run foundries.

Armco Metals has well-developed relationships with more than 10 international metal suppliers in ore-rich countries including Australia, India, South Korea, Brazil, and the United States, enabling the company to obtain favorable pricing for our customers, at rates unavailable through direct market importing or spot markets.

Furthermore, Armco Metals has established a proven transportation system that utilizes China’s existing infrastructure, including three deep-sea ports, railway systems, and highway systems, to improve the time, costs and distance capabilities necessary to ore distribution.

Raptor Resources Holdings Inc. (RRHI) Developing Important Resources for Multiple Industries

The world is built largely on the twin pillars of energy and materials, and the unique mineral called barite has a foothold in both. On the energy side, barite is a mineral considered critical to the oil and gas industry as a weighting agent, key to the prevention of blowouts during drilling. As wells get deeper and deeper in search of scarcer fossil fuels, the volume of barite required grows. Of all the barite mined, nearly 80% of it goes to the oil and gas industry. But barite also plays roles on the materials side in a number of industries. It fills various roles in the automotive industry and acts as a filler for paint and plastics. It is used as a contrasting agent in medical scanning, and can be used for radiation shielding. There are many other applications for barite, making it a foundational mineral for the global economy.

All this is hugely important to Raptor Resources Holdings, whose subsidiary Mabwe Minerals is in the process of developing a major barite find in Zimbabwe, Africa. Their Dodge Mine in the hills of northeastern Zimbabwe will add to the supply chain for the oil and gas industry, but it is also host to exceptional higher grade barite types of special value to the automotive, medical, and paint additive sectors, as well as niche markets in heavy-duty concrete. The property has also been confirmed as a source of limestone, for which there is strong local demand. In addition, the company is investigating widespread occurrences of gossan deposits, for which initial surface level test samples have confirmed the presence of gold, copper, nickel, zinc, and lead.

Raptor Resources is also pursuing mineral exploration at its nearby Raptor Mine in Shamva, Zimbabwe, where tests have suggested significant nickel anomalies.
