Mr. Yan Weibin, Chairman and Executive Director of the Group, said "We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to our shareholders for their support towards the resolution. As one of the leaders in the dairy industry, the Company has been committed to consolidating the global supply chain and deploying our globalised business network through multiple substantial capital investments and mergers and acquisitions. We believe that the Subscription offers a good opportunity to raise additional funds to strengthen the financial position and broaden the capital base of the Group. Furthermore, the strategic introduction of competent shareholders will enlarge our shareholder base and strengthen our shareholder profile, which will facilitate the synergy that favors our long-term development. Looking ahead, we will adhere to the mission of "Nourishing Life & Growth" and the vision of "Becoming the World's Most Trusted Formula and Nutrition Health Company", focus on the Company's sustainable development, enrich and optimize our investor structure, as well as further enhance our share liquidity and corporate value, so as to create greater value for our consumers and stakeholders."
