TORONTO, March 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aspire International Inc. (Pink Sheets:APIT) today announced that it has acquired the domain name for its International Online Shopping Mall business unit.
The online business is currently operating its platform using only the domain name. In order to better develop business worldwide, it will now be running the platform using both domain names simultaneously.
Aspire President and CEO Bok Wong stated, "We consider this an important strategic move as the company begins expanding its online business globally."
The online mall was created in 2009, and Aspire acquired it earlier this year. Revenues have been growing rapidly, and the business now generates significant positive cash flow.
On March 28, 2011 Aspire will host a global-marketing launch ceremony at the Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel and Towers in Kowloon, Hong Kong. The Asia-Pacific headquarters for Mygos is located in Hong Kong.
Aspire expects to file its audited 2009 financial statements shortly.
