ROYSTON FINANCIAL GROUP LIMITED

  1. DISCLOSEABLE AND CONNECTED TRANSACTION - SUBSCRIPTION OF SHARES OF ROYSTON FINANCIAL GROUP LIMITED

On 10 August 2020, the Subscriber, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into the Subscription Agreement with Royston Financial, pursuant to which the Subscriber has agreed to subscribe for the Subscription Shares at the Subscription Price of HK$7,200,000.

As at the date of this announcement, Royston Financial is owned as to (i) 60% indirectly by Mr. Raymond Liu; (ii) 20% indirectly by Dr. Kenny Tang; and (iii) 20% indirectly by an independent third party, Mr. Cheng Kwok Kit Edwin. Therefore, Royston Financial is an associate of Mr. Raymond Liu and a connected person of the Company.

Upon completion of the Share Subscription, Royston Financial will be owned as to 60% indirectly by the Company; 24% indirectly by Mr. Raymond Liu, 8% indirectly by Dr. Kenny Tang; and (iii) 8% indirectly by Mr. Cheng Kwok Kit Edwin, and will become a non-wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

As at the date of this announcement, (i) Mr. Raymond Liu is an executive Director and a Controlling Shareholder of the Company indirectly holding an aggregate of 570,000,000 Shares, representing approximately 56.92% of the entire issued share capital of the Company; and (ii) Dr. Kenny Tang is a non-executive Director of the Company. As such, Mr. Raymond Liu, Dr. Kenny Tang and their respective associates are connected persons of the Company under the Listing Rules. Accordingly, the entering into of the Subscription Agreement with Royston Financial constitutes a connected transaction of the Company under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules.

As one of the applicable percentage ratios in respect of the Subscription Agreement calculated pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules is more than 5% but all are less than 25% and the total consideration is less than HK$10,000,000, the entering into of the Subscription Agreement constitutes (i) a connected transaction of the Company exempt from shareholders' approval requirements under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules subject to the reporting and announcement pursuant to Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules; and (ii) a discloseable transaction of the Company under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules subject to the announcement requirement pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.

2. Reasons for and benefits of entering into the Subscription Agreement

The principal activity of the Company is investment holding. The Group is principally engaged in the distribution of IT Security Products and the provision of IT Security Services in Hong Kong, Macau, the PRC and Singapore.

The Board considers that the Share Subscription will provide an opportunity for the Group to participate in the securities trading industry and enable the Group to expand its business portfolio in financial services sector. According to the website of the Stock Exchange, market capitalisation of the securities market in Hong Kong as at 30 June 2020 reached HK$34.0 trillion and its average daily turnover for the first six months of 2020 was $117.5 billion, representing an increase of approximately 20% when compared with HK$97.9 billion for the same period last year. In light of this, the Directors believe that the Royston Financial Group is expected to be able to take advantage of such growth in the daily turnover of the securities market in Hong Kong and the Share Subscription will provide an opportunity for the Group to diversify the revenue sources of the Group.

In view of the above, despite the Share Subscription is not conducted in the ordinary and usual course of business of the Group, the Directors considers that the terms of the Subscription Agreement are fair and reasonable, on normal commercial terms, and the Share Subscription is in the interest of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole. Both Mr. Raymond Liu (being an executive Director and one of the indirect shareholders of Royston Financial) and Dr. Kenny Tang (being a non-executive Director and one of the indirect shareholders of Royston Financial) have abstained from voting on the relevant resolutions of the Board approving the Subscription Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereunder. Save as disclosed in this announcement, none of the other Directors has any material interest in the Royston Financial Group, and hence no other Director is required to abstain from voting on such resolutions of the Board.

3. Listing Rules Implications

As at the date of this announcement, (i) Mr. Raymond Liu is an executive Director and a Controlling Shareholder of the Company indirectly holding an aggregate of 570,000,000 Shares, representing approximately 56.92% of the entire issued share capital of the Company; and (ii) Dr. Kenny Tang is a non-executive Director of the Company. As such, Mr. Raymond Liu, Dr. Kenny Tang and their respective associates are connected persons of the Company under the Listing Rules.

As at the date of this announcement, Royston Financial is owned as to (i) 60% indirectly by Mr. Raymond Liu; (ii) 20% indirectly by Dr. Kenny Tang; and (iii) 20% indirectly by an independent third party, Mr. Cheng Kwok Kit Edwin. Therefore, Royston Financial is an associate of Mr. Raymond Liu and a connected person of the Company; accordingly, the entering into of the Subscription Agreement with Royston Financial constitutes a connected transaction of the Company under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules.

6

As one of the applicable percentage ratios in respect of the Subscription Agreement calculated pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules is more than 5% but all are less than 25% and the total consideration is less than HK$10,000,000, the entering into of the Subscription Agreement constitutes (i) a connected transaction of the Company exempt from shareholders' approval requirements under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules subject to the reporting and announcement pursuant to Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules; and (ii) a discloseable transaction of the Company under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules subject to the announcement requirement pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.

(B) INFORMATION OF THE ROYSTON FINANCIAL GROUP
