BEIJING, Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Puhui Wealth Investment Management Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: PHCF) ("Puhui" or the "Company"), a third-party wealth management service provider with a focus on wealth management services for high net worth individuals and corporate clients, today announced it has closed the acquisition of Granville Financial Services Company Limited ("Granville"), a registered Exchange Participant of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Ltd. The acquisition is consistent with Puhui's strategy of expanding its wealth and asset management services to include international regions as a complement to its business in mainland China.

Transaction Background / Terms
Puhui has agreed to purchase 13,000,000 (100%) shares of Granville in the amount of HK$29,390,000 (a. USD$3.76 million). The Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong approved the application for Puhui to become a controlling shareholder of Granville.

Puhui paid for the net assets of Granville, whose assets consist predominantly of securities licenses to conduct wealth management business and general securities business in Hong Kong, from cash on hand.

Management Commentary
Mr. Zhe Ji, Chairman and CEO of Puhui, stated, "The acquisition of Granville is a major step forward in our long-term growth strategy of becoming a leading, comprehensive third-party wealth management service provider and expand outside of China. We are now well-positioned to take advantage of financial qualifications and licenses that allow us to provide our services in China and Hong Kong, with the prospect of seeking additional licenses globally.

This acquisition will play a significant role in assisting the Company's business development activities in Hong Kong, broadening and enhancing our existing product portfolio, and  providing valuable international experience to our team. We will continue to evaluate other business and  growth opportunities as they arise."
