Mongolia Holdings, Inc., CEO Gary Kucher stated: “This culminates over three years of planning, due diligence, hard work and execution. I want to personally thank all of the representatives of XacBank and Hertz, together with our management team, employees and stakeholders, as this completes a truly historic milestone for the Company and a significant corporate financing within Mongolia. This credit facility allows the Company to further execute its business plan, and we anticipate announcing additional progress in the near term. We look forward to working together and forging a longstanding, mutually successful relationship with both Hertz and XacBank that will continue to build value for our stakeholders.”
Via the capital markets, Mongolia Holdings plans to explore sourcing additional funding to be used for the set-up of its equipment maintenance facilities, build-out of its mobile services vehicles, new employee training and to fund on-going operations. While the Company is confident in realizing its goals, it offers no assurances that it will be successful in obtaining this additional funding.

Mongolia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, led by the extraction of vast deposits of coal, copper, gold, uranium, iron ore and other commodities. Its proximity to four of the largest economies in the world -- China, Russia, Japan, and South Korea -- creates trade and cross-border investment opportunities that are distinct from those available to competing resource-rich countries. These natural advantages, along with recent pro-business changes in foreign investment rules, securities laws, and mining regulations, have the nation poised for sustained growth in the construction sector for infrastructure development and industrialization resulting from large-scale mining projects. Mongolia is an independent democracy of approximately three million people dedicated to becoming the economic corridor of Eurasia.
