Allotment and Issuance of Consideration Shares Has Been Completed
Tianyun International Holdings Limited (Tianyun International, together with its subsidiaries, the Group) (Stock Code: 6836.HK), a leading manufacturer and seller of processed fruit products in China is pleased to announce that Strong Won Investment Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Group which was acquired on 31 January 2018 and its wholly-owned subsidiary Tiantong Food (Yichang) Ltd. (Yichang Tiantong) have achieved the majority of its targeted production volume and revenue within three years.
The Group therefore allotted and issued 13,050,000 ordinary shares to Long Advance Investments Limited (Long Advance Investments) as Consideration Shares. The Consideration Shares allotted and issued to Long Advance Investments accounted for approximately 1.32% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company after such allotment and issue. The group entered into an agreement to acquire The Target Group with Long Advance Investments on 15 September 2017. Pursuant to the agreement, Tiantong Food (Yichang) Ltd. has set a total of 80,000 tonnes of processed fruits target production volume during the period of three years commencing from the Completion Date and an aggregate amount of RMB700 million target revenue from its principal business.
Mr. Yang Ziyan, Chairman and CEO of the Group, said, “The completion of allotment and issuance of Consideration Shares highlights the effectiveness of the performance-based incentive mechanism added to the acquisition agreement by the Group. The completion of the acquisition of Yichang Tiantong has strengthened the future development of the Group. The production facilities at Hubei production base not only effectively increase the production capacity of the Group’s beverage products and existing processed fruit products, but also facilitate the Group in developing new types of processed fruit products sourced from the subtropical climate region in the central part of the PRC, strengthening the Group’s arrangements with warehousing and transportation of its own brand products. These demonstrate strategic significance for the Group to explore the market in the central part of the PRC with its own brand.”
Yichang City, Hubei Province is the main place of production of mandarin orange. According to the latest data released by the Huajing Industry Research Institute, China is the world’s largest exporter of canned mandarin oranges, accounting for over 80% of international trade in the world. To meet the strong market demand, Yichang Tiantong has increased production efficiency by adding new production lines, renovating its facilities and enhancing its capacities, also releasing new capacities and driving production efficiency, thereby reaping record performance, ensuring fruitful output in this year and fueling the Group’s development. In addition, the Group’s project in Yuan’an County, Yichang City, will form a synergistic effect with Yichang Tiantong and effectively increase the production capacity of beverages and other products.
Mr. Yang added, “The Group has always adhered to the development of its own brand that is highly recognised by the market. The Group made the Most Valuable Chinese Brands for the fourth consecutive year and was awarded “2020 Most Popular canned Product”, reflecting the steady growth of market share and consumer recognition for the Group’s own brand products. These positive impacts are believed to be attributable to the synergies with the Target Group in the past few years. Looking ahead, the Group will continue to further expand its production capacity of various products, dynamically coordinate the development needs of its own brand business and OEM business, and strive to further expand the Group’s market share in the PRC and even the world, achieving a sustainable development of the Group.”
