Shang Yang plans to maintain one of the acquired floors as its corporate office for Suzhou operations, while the other floor will be rented out for commercial use, according to an announcement by Sunrise Real Estate, which is traded on the OTC Bulletin Board. Shang Yang will take possession of its space in March 2006. Shang Yang will be financing 50% of the purchase price with a five-year term loan.Including the latest transaction, Suzhou Hui Long Development is believed to have received commitments for close to 60% of the building, which it guaranteed it would do by May 2005.
