Background/Description of the Disclosure

Date of Approval by
Board of Directors

Jun 20, 2022

Rationale for the transaction including the benefits which are expected to be accrued to the issuer as a result of the transaction

The Corporation’s China Operations has been incurring continuing operating losses through the past years due to adverse business and economic environment which caused low production and sales volume. The depressed prices of steel products in the China market and coupled with the changes in the PROC tax policies were significant contributory factors. This has resulted in ZZ Stronghold incurring capital deficiency of Php1,097.3 Million and Php1,151.1 Million as at December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The sale of the China operations will ease the financial burden of the Corporation, as the parent company, will no longer be required to continue to fund the financial reverses being incurred by the China Operations.

Details of the acquisition or disposition

Manner

TKC’s disposition of BSIL will be formalized through the execution of a Deed of Assignment of all of its rights and interests in BSIL in the favor of the DTL.

Description of the company to be acquired or sold

BSIL is a holding company registered, and with its principal office, in Hong Kong.

BSIL owns ZZ Stronghold, a steel manufacturing company located in ZhangZhou, China.

Nature and amount of consideration given or received

The total consideration for the sale of the shares is Php1,741,825,926.00 which will be paid in cash.

Principle followed in determining the amount of consideration

The Corporation’s advances to the China Operations will likewise be assumed by the buyer.

Terms of payment

a. One Million US Dollars ($1,000,000.00), or approximately Php53.46 Million, shall be payable immediately upon execution of the Deed of Assignment.
b. Eight Million US Dollars ($8,000,000.00), or approximately Php427.68 Million, shall be paid within thirty (30) days after the signing of the Deed of Assignment.
c. The balance of the total consideration of approximately Php1,260 Million (about $23.58 Million) will be paid within one hundred twenty (120) days from the signing of the Deed of Assignment.

Effect(s) on the business, financial condition and operations of the Issuer, if any

The impact of the disposition of the Corporation’s China Operations is that the Corporation, as parent company, no longer need to consolidate the losses of the China Operations.

With the persistent low prices of steel products in China, the China operations is expected to continue to incur losses. Thus, the Corporation will no longer have any need to subsidize the operations of the subsidiary.

Other Relevant Information

Under SEC Memorandum Circular No. 12, Series of 2020, listed companies proposing to sell all or substantially all of their corporate property and assets are required to have the proposed sale approved by their shareholders owning at least two-thirds (2/3) of their outstanding capital stock. Under the regulations, the sale of property and assets amounting to at least fifty-one percent (51%) of total assets shall constitute “all or substantially all” of the corporation’s assets.

The sale will not breach such threshold.
