Earthasia International Holdings Ltd. (ETIHY) Announces Expansion


Recently Renamed Graphex Group forms new indirect wholly-owned subsidiaryin China in order to increase production capacity

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 4, 2021 / Earthasia International Holdings Ltd. (the "Company") ("Earthasia") (OTCQX:ETIHY); (HKEX:6128), a leader in graphene products and technologies and a manufacturer of spherical graphite and graphene technology for the renewable energy sector, is pleased to announce that on February 22, 2021 The board of directors of the Company (the "Board") approved the foundation of a new indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Heilongjiang Province Graphex New Material Technology Company Limited ("HLJ Province Graphex") at Qitaihe City of the Heilongjiang Province of China.

The Company's current annual production capacity for spherical graphite, an essential material to produce anodes for lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles, is 10,000 tons. It is the Company's plan to invest in and develop a new production facility for spherical graphite through HLJ Province Graphex with a planned additional production capacity of up to 30,000 tonnes that will come into operation in phases.

"Earthasia intends to fully leverage its Graphene Division's patented high-volume manufacturing capability and product technology to capitalize on the forecasted growth of EV and stored energy lithium ion batteries, in addition to developing future graphene applications," said Chan Yick Yan Andross, Chief Executive Officer and Director, Earthasia International Holdings Ltd.

The demand for electric vehicles and energy storage are key demand drivers for lithium ion batteries and therefore the Company's products. The Company's main product, spherical graphite, is an essential material for production of Lithium Ion battery anodes. These powerful market drivers should provide robust demand for the Company's graphene products in the foreseeable future.

The recent Board approval to change the Company's name from Earthasia International Holdings Ltd. to Graphex Group was the first of a number of strategic actions being taken to accurately reflect the Company's focus on graphene research, manufacturing and development and further capitalize on the opportunities the graphene sector presents. The Company remains committed to its strategy of achieving leadership in the graphene business.

The Company's spherical graphite manufacturing facility is strategically located in Heilongjiang Province, which has significant high-quality natural graphite reserves. Once HLJ Province Graphex's new production facility is fully operational, the Company expects to increase annual production by 30,000 tons to a total of 40,000 tons.
