With the completion of the strategic divestment, the product verticals are now 55 per cent owned by the Fung Group and 45 per cent owned by Hony Capital. The remaining business of Li & Fung now consists of its Services Segment, which includes supply chain solutions and logistics businesses, and the Products Segment, which includes its Onshore Wholesale businesses in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
"We are excited about the new chapter for Li & Fung following this further simplification of our business to focus resources on our core competences and achieving our Three-Year Plan goal of creating the Supply Chain of the Future. The $1.1 billion proceeds further strengthen our capital structure and allow us to pay a special dividend of 47.6 HK cents per share to our shareholders, bringing our full-year dividend to 60.6 HK cents per share," Spencer Fung, Group CEO of Li & Fung, said.
As announced on 14 December 2017, this divestment continues Li & Fung’s strategy of simplifying its overall business and will allow its senior management team to focus resources on its Three-Year Plan (2017 – 2019) goal of creating the Supply Chain of the Future. The product verticals will also gain from the dedicated resources and management attention to allow them to be more nimble as a separate company.
"Our recent 2017 annual results were solid and our new Three-Year Plan had a strong start in its first year and we are on track to meet our financial targets and strategic goals of creating the Supply Chain of the Future. Customers are responding well to our speed and digital supply chain model to achieve speed-to-market, realising tangible improvements in their inventory management, sell-through and mark-downs," added Spencer. "I would like to thank all of our colleagues in the three product verticals for their support, commitment and dedication over the past years and I wish them all the best for their success in the future."
"We are excited to welcome our new colleagues and look forward to working with the management teams of the product verticals and to help them expand both upstream and downstream," John Zhao, Chairman and CEO of Hony Capital and executive vice president of Legend Holdings, said. (RR)
