Lan-cheng has established a new fund, Lan-cheng Westcity LP (the “Fund“) and has advised Perisson of the appointment of legal (Chien Yeh Law Offices, Taipei) and financial advisors (Ernst Young, Shanghai) to oversee the funding process. The Fund has commenced finalizing commitments from its investor group.

As previously announced, the Fund intends to purchase approximately 45,678,787 common shares of the Company at a price of USD $1.0946 per share, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of USD $50 million (the “Financing“), subject to the negotiation and completion of a definitive financing agreement by the parties.
