Shanghai 3F signs key assets reorganisation agreement framework
On 5 Aug., 2016, Shanghai Huayi (Group) Company (Huayi), Shanghai 3F New Materials Co., Ltd. (Shanghai 3F) and China Culture Development (Group) Company (CCDC) signed the Key Assets Reorganisation Agreement Framework.
According to the agreement, Huayi will transfer its 89,388,381 shares (= 20% of the total) in Shanghai 3F to CCDC, for USD273.10 million (RMB1.81 billion). Meanwhile, the transaction this time involves assets sale and injection, aimed at promoting Shanghai 3F's business transformation and development.
According to CCM's research, the transaction will be carried out step by step: 1. assets injection; 2. assets sale; 3. equity transfer.
Founded in April 2003, it is a state-owned enterprise mainly engaged in: operation of culture innovation industrial parks; investment, financing, technology R&D and technical service related to culture and relevant business; publications and related packaging/ decoration, and manufacturing of related equipment and materials.
From this equity transfer, CCDC will replace Huayi and become the controlling shareholder of Shanghai 3F. However, in light of the completely different businesses – fluorochemicals vs. culture/ education – where Shanghai 3F will go remains open to question.
Huayi, Shanghai 3F and CCDC have already reached a primary consensus about the cooperation: Shanghai 3F will sell its fluorochemicals business to Huayi by cash, and meanwhile will take CCDC's culture/ education assets by cash OR by share issuing.
"In future, we will develop Shanghai 3F into a dominant platform for culture/ education business development and integration," stated CCDC, "It is expected to establish an all-round education business, from preschool, K12 (from kindergarten to Grade 12) to occupational education, to build online and offline combined service system and to integrate quality education resources at home and abroad, so as to gradually grow into a culture/ education full chain platform."
Regarding the assets reorganisation issue, the 3 sides will sign additional assets sale/ purchase agreements to make the implementation clear. Since the reorganisation is comparatively complicated, involving large assets and staff arrangement, the details are still under negotiation. Hence, Shanghai 3F has applied to the Shanghai Stock Exchange for continuing trade suspension from 13 Aug., (trade to restart and preproposal about the reorganisation to be unveiled at the same time on 10 Oct.).
