Nissin Foods Forms Joint Venture Company to Strengthen Distribution Platform in PRC Market

HONG KONG, Jan 23, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - Nissin Foods Company Limited ("Nissin Foods" or the "Company"; together with its subsidiaries, the "Group", Stock code: 1475) has today announced that the Group and Ms. LIU Feng have signed a shareholders' and cooperation agreement (the "Shareholders Agreement") to form a joint venture company (the "JV").

Mr. Kiyotaka ANDO, Executive Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nissin Foods, said, "Formation of the JV is the Group's latest initiative to diversify products and expand distribution channels in the PRC, and in the long run open new revenue streams for the Group. It will give us a stronger foothold in Shanghai, presenting us with long-term strategic value conducive to creating sustainable returns for our shareholders. It is also part of our localisation efforts to strengthen our presence and relevance in the PRC. In the way ahead, we will continue to look for opportunities in strategic partnerships or alliances, thereby fueling growth momentum."

The JV, intended to be a holding company, will set up a PRC Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise (PRC WFOE). The main business of the JV and the PRC WFOE will be to import and sell a comprehensive range of Japanese brand food and beverage products in first-tier cities including Shanghai in the PRC. The two companies target to commence business by the second quarter this year.

The shareholding ratio of Nissin Foods and Ms. LIU Feng to the JV Company is 81% and 19% respectively. Nissin Foods will contribute approximately HKD18.6 million in cash, to be financed by internal resources, to the share capital of the company. Both the JV and the PRC WFOE will be subsidiaries of the Company, the results of which will be consolidated into the financial statements of the Group.

The JV will enable the Group to expand its distribution channels and provide more diversified products to satisfy the growing demand of customers in the PRC for Japanese brand food and beverage products. Serving as an enhanced distribution platform for the Group, the JV will also create synergies with the Group's existing noodles business in the PRC, helping bolster revenue of the Group, as well as its overall competitiveness.

Furthermore, continuing with the Group's long term development strategy of localising the senior management, Mr. YING Li Feng, Assistant Director of Nissin Foods (China) Holdings Co., Ltd., will be appointed Chairman of the PRC WFOE. Ms. LIU Feng will be appointed a director of the PRC WFOE. The Group believes such efforts will strengthen its knowledge of the PRC market and better prepare it for braving future market challenges.
