(Press Release) - Li & Fung Limited (“Li & Fung,” “the Group,” or “the Company;” SEHK: 494), the world’s leading supply chain solutions partner for consumer brands and retailers, today announced it has entered into a Subscription Agreement with Temasek, the Singapore-headquartered investment company  (“Temasek”), for a cash consideration of US$300 million for approximately 21.7% stake of its Logistics business (“LF Logistics”).

The investment values LF Logistics at approximately US$1.4 billion on a post-money equity valuation basis. Upon completion, Li & Fung will remain a controlling shareholder of LF Logistics, which at a 78.3% stake equates to approximately HK$1 of the Company’s current share price.
