Yeahka Limited (HKG: 9923), a leading payment-based technology platform in China, announced that Shenzhen Zhizhanggui Cloud Service Co., Ltd. (Zhizhanggui) and Shenzhen Leshou Cloud Technology Co., Ltd. (Leshou), both indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Yeahka, have entered into a non-legally binding memorandum of understanding with Fushi Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.
(Fushi), an associated company of Yeahka which the Company holds approximately 47.58% equity interests in aggregate through its indirect subsidiaries, in relation to the potential disposal of 60% Zhizhanggui’s equity interests by Leshou to Fushi (the Potential Disposal). The Potential Disposal equates to a consideration of approximately RMB201.9 million, based on a valuation of Zhizhanggui of approximately RMB336.5 million.
The Potential Disposal, if consummated, is expected to realize gains before tax from asset disposals of over RMB200 million for the Company.
Fushi is an important member of Yeahka’s ecosystem, expanding its merchant base and providing services to more than 420,000 merchants with peak transaction counts of over 8,380,000 as of March 31, 2021.
Through the acquisition of Zhizhanggui, Fushi will obtain a cornerstone “hardware+software” standardized infrastructure and further accelerate its open-SaaS strategy by integrating the established SaaS modules to offline merchants.
Not only does the historical investment in Zhizhanggui yield significant returns, as the single largest shareholder in Fushi, Yeahka is able to focus on more asset-light, industry agnostic SaaS solutions such as “Yuehuiquan”, a blockchain’s underlying technology-based solution that enables merchants to operate their private domain traffic. Jointly with Fushi, Yeahka will continue to strengthen its SaaS portfolio and remain committed to establishing a commercial digitalized ecosystem.
