New York, Nov. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yulong Eco-Materials Limited (Nasdaq CM: YECO) today announced that it has received its updated Certificate of Incorporation Name Change from Cayman Islands Registry of Companies.

The Company changed its name to reflect its new business model of using issuances of its Nasdaq stock to acquire rare works of fine art, to develop the value of these acquisitions with exhibitions and media exposure, and open the opportunity of shared ownership of its acquired masterpieces to anyone with a brokerage account.  This will empower investors who have not had the independent financial ability to now share ownership of such works. Through the acquisition of YECO shares, the general public can have fractionalized ownership of a collection of extremely valuable art treasures that until now have been restricted to billionaires, museums and royalty. The company's premium fine art asset is the Millennium Sapphire. On November 19, 2018 the Company announced that it has signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement to acquire Michelangelo's Crucifixion painting for US$75 million. The acquisition will be paid via the issuance of 7.5 million YECO restricted shares valued at $10.00 per share. 

"We like our business model of acquiring, accumulating and promoting fine art masterpieces", said Chairman Daniel Mckinney. "While the various stock, oil and other commodity markets ride the rollercoaster, fine art just keeps appreciating."

Bloomberg dubbed this past week a "monster week" for auctions.  In the unrelenting contest between the two premier auction houses, Christies and Sotheby's sold over $2 billion in art this week, according to Bloomberg.

About the Millennium Sapphire business

YECO plans to take the Millennium Sapphire on a tour of museums around the world, produce a television documentary, and include it the gemstone in a number of feature films.  The Company will develop games around museum tours, much in the same manner as the Pokemon Go craze and other virtual games. CEO Hoi Ming Chan said, "We plan to develop the business and cash flows of the Millennium Sapphire through games, branding and licensing, along with royalties and ticket sales through major museums worldwide. We will also retain some of the world's top art and promotions experts to develop and manage this once in a lifetime opportunity."
