Prime will make additional investments in Asia as necessary to launch and run new construction and retrofit projects in Asia that incorporate CSI's revolutionary composite technologies. Of particular interest to Prime is CSI's carbon shell system (CSS) for new construction applications.. CSI's and Prime's managements predict a multibillion-dollar market potential for new construction applications of this technology in Asia. CSI's share of this market will be derived from licensing, material sales, and engineering service agreements with Prime.
