NIVS IntelliMedia (NIV) Granted Mobile Phone License

HUIZHOU, China, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — NIVS IntelliMedia Technology Group, Inc., (“NIVS” or the “Company”) (NYSE: NIV), a consumer electronics company that designs, manufactures and sells intelligent audio and visual products, today announced that the Company has been granted the license to manufacture mobile phones by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The Company will be allowed to operate its mobile phone business in mainland China under NIVS’s own brand name.

NIVS currently has the R&D capabilities and intellectual property rights to manufacture 3G mobile phones and has already introduced a dual-mode EVDO/GSM 3G handset to the market. The license will allow the Company to speed up the market entry for such handsets under the NIVS brand name.

Mr. Tianfu Li, CEO and Chairman of NIVS, commented, “We are very excited to be entering the huge market of 3G telecommunications in China. The three giant telecom operators, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, are projected to invest a total of RMB 400 billion (US$58.6 billion) in 3G infrastructure over the next three years, which we believe will create a lot of revenue opportunities for NIVS. Because building strong relationships with network operators is so important in the 3G era, we have been actively working closely with these top three operators in China. On August 24, we were invited to participate in China Telecom’s sales conference for their 3G brand, Tianyi, as well as in their smart phone conference in early September. We are pleased to be working closely with such a big operator and are hopeful to become an OEM supplier for China Telecom. Aside from providing 3G terminal products such as the mobile handset, we also aim to be involved in telecom operators’ operational business so as to enhance our sustainable profitability in the 3G industry.”
