LOMBARD, IL — April 01, 2016 — Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB: PRXG) announced today that its subsidiary, Pernix PNG Ltd., has purchased Basic Industries (PNG) Ltd. from Fijian Holdings Limited (FHL) for one million kina (approximately US $325,000).  The transaction, which occurred on 31 March 2016, also included FHL investing seven million kina into Pernix PNG Ltd.

Pernix has had a standing relationship with FHL since 2014, when FHL purchased partial ownership of Pernix (Fiji) Ltd.  The partnership between Pernix and FHL is now extending from Fiji to PNG and will eventually lead to partnership in Pernix operations throughout the Pacific Rim.  Pernix PNG Ltd., a joint venture between Pernix Group of USA and FHL, is a newly incorporated company with plans to make inroads into energy and construction sectors in PNG.

Nidal Z. Zayed, President & CEO of Pernix Group, made several visits to PNG said that he is very confident about the PNG economy and opportunities it presents. He said, “We want to bring cutting edge technology, create employment for the people of Papua New Guinea and contribute to its economy through local partnership and participation. Pernix is honored to be a bridge between the people of Fiji and PNG to share ownership of the company with local enterprises and shareholders. Together we can drive growth not only in Fiji and PNG but throughout the Pacific Rim.”

Mr. Zayed thanked FHL’s CEO Nouzab Fareed, Chairman Naiveli, shareholders, board, management and entire FHL team for their confidence in Pernix and he said good days are ahead for both the parties.
