The cooperation will bring together the core competencies of S.F. Holding and Kerry Logistics Network across multiple verticals to create a leading Asia-based global logistics platform to meet ever-changing demands.
Under the strategic cooperation, Kerry Logistics Network will be positioned as S.F. Holding’s platform for international business. S.F. Holding and the Company will also collaborate with each other in Greater China to better align their respective businesses. By tapping into different customer segments, S.F. Holding and Kerry Logistics Network will coexist as separate entities in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. The Company will continue to grow its logistics businesses, both in terms of scale and coverage. The partnership is expected to create significant synergies to boost both companies’ growth and leadership in the logistics sector with clear business focuses and complementary strengths to bring value to investors.
Subsequent to the completion of the proposed transaction, Kerry Logistics Network’s listed status on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange will remain unchanged. The Kerry Group of companies will still hold a significant interest in the Company, which will continue to operate under the “Kerry” names with a clear brand identity and be managed by its current core leadership team across all markets.
