HONG KONG, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- China Renaissance Holdings Limited ("China Renaissance" or the "Company"; stock code: 1911.HK) announced that, based on the preliminary review of the unaudited consolidated management accounts of the Company for the six months ended June 30, 2021, it expects to record approximately RMB1,200 million in profit attributable to owners of the Company, a 194% increase over the prior year period. This positive profit update is largely attributable to China Renaissance's investment banking and investment management segments, combined with China Renaissance Securities' turnaround from loss to profit.
China Renaissance's significant profit increase over the prior year was largely driven by the Company's robust investment banking transaction pipeline utilizing its underwriting capabilities for initial public offerings ("IPOs") in Hong Kong, and continued contribution of investment income from the private equity funds managed under the Company's investment management business.
During the period, China Renaissance worked on a number of high-profile IPOs and follow-on offering transitions, including but not limited to the IPOs of Kuaishou, Baidu and JD Logistics on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange ("HKSE"), as well as the IPOs of Full Truck Alliance, AiHuiShou and Zhihu on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations ("NASDAQ").
China Renaissance's investment management business also continued to perform well during the first half of 2021. Huaxing Growth Capital, China Renaissance's flagship PE investment fund, invested in a number of high growth companies such as MGI Tech, Pop Mart, AFIONA, Helios, HiRain Technologies, Insgeek, NYSCPS, WeiNian and Sinopharm Dental. As of December 31, 2020, China Renaissance's investment management business had RMB57.4 billion in assets under management.
The interim results of the Company for the six months ended June 30, 2021 is expected to be announced before the end of August 2021.
