Hong Kong – March 8, 2018 – Sharing Economy International, Inc. (“SEII” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: SEII) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, EC Advertising Limited (“EC Advertising”), has entered into an exclusivity agreement with the shareholders of Winse Media, regarding a potential acquisition by EC Advertising of not less than 51% of Winse Media.
Incorporated in Mainland China, Winse Media specializes in online media advertising. Its headquarters is in Guangzhou and it has technical and operational centers situated in Beijing and Chengdu, respectively. Winse Media has established a cooperative relationship with China’s big three mobile service providers: China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. This provides Winse Media with access to over 600 million mobile users, providing opportunities for datamining the consumption and recreational habits of the users and targeting advertisements that will have the greatest influence on them. In 2016, Winse Media generated annual revenue and gross operating profits were RMB27.3 million and RMB2.2 million respectively.
“We are excited about a potential collaboration with Winse Media as we work to expand SEII’s media and advertising business,” said Parkson Yip, COO of SEII. “We believe their access to a broad user base of potential clients in Mainland China will enable our business units such as BuddiGo, 3D Discovery and AnyWorkspace to promote and expand their businesses in China. More importantly, its healthy financial performance can create more operating cash flows for the Company, which can be used in normal operations and as capital resources in future acquisition activities.”
There can be no assurances that the parties may enter into any agreement to do a transaction, and even if an agreement is entered into, there can be no assurances that such transaction will be consummated.
