Broadens Capital Base & Accelerates Education Operation Business Development

HONG KONG, Dec 5, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - China First Capital Group Limited ("CFCG" or the "Group"; stock code: 1269), announced today that the Group has entered into the Subscription Agreement with Champion Sense Global Limited (the "Investor"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Huarong International Financial Holdings Limited to issue Convertible Bonds worth up to HK$800 million.

According to the Agreement, the Investor has conditionally agreed to subscribe convertible bonds at the initial Conversion Price of HK$3.27 per share, amounting in all up to HK$800 million. The amount represents approximately 5.12% of the existing issued share capital of the Group.
