KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 3, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LadyBug Resource Group Inc. (OTCBB:LBRG) has acquired 100% of MAG International, Inc. (MAG), a leader in gasoline and electric mini-utility vehicles. Craig Barton, COO of LadyBug, said, "LadyBug is excited to complete the acquisition of MAG. Acquiring MAG gives us the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the booming alternative energy vehicle market and strategically place us to capitalize on the Federal Government's plan to transition portions of their gasoline mini-utility vehicles to electric, as well as compete for a portion of the potential USPS's plan to retrofit their 146,000 delivery fleet to electric. MAG has already successfully retrofitted a USPS delivery truck to electric propulsion with predominantly U.S. components at a cost substantially lower than the competition."
Barton concluded, "Additionally, with LadyBug appointing Thomas F. Krucker as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, LadyBug and MAG are positioned for strong sales growth. Krucker served with Toyota USA for 11 years and held national positions as IR Director and Import Director for the USA. Krucker has a proven track-record of performance in the auto-industry with Toyota and was responsible for the largest selling region in USA and for building a dealer network for Toyota, which became the first imported vehicle nameplate to out-sell and out-register all domestic car lines including Chevrolet, Ford, and Chrysler. We believe this experience will translate into strong sales of MAG vehicles moving forward."
