Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement 

 

On December 27, 2021, ReTo Technology Development Co., Ltd. (the “Buyer”), a wholly owned subsidiary of ReTo Eco-Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Equity Transfer Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Hainan REIT Mingde Investment Holding Co., Ltd. (“REIT Mingde”), a limited liability company incorporated in the People’s Republic of China (the “PRC”), Xiaoping Li and Jing Peng, shareholders of REIT Mingde and owning 99% and 1% of the equity interest of REIT Mingde prior to the Acquisition (as defined below), respectively, and Hainan Yile IoT Technology Co., Ltd (“Hainan Yile IoT”) and Yangpu Fangyuyuan United Logistics Co., Ltd (“Yangpu Fangyuyuan”), each a PRC limited liability company and subsidiary of REIT Mingde. REIT Mingde owns 100% of the equity interest of Yangpu Fangyuyuan and 61.548% of the equity interest of Hainan Yile IoT, which, in turn, owns 90% of the equity interest of Hainan Yile IoV Technology Research Institute Co., Ltd., 85% of the equity interest of Shanxi Global Travel Co., Ltd. and 45% of the equity interest of Hainan Beiqi Yinjian Yile Smart Travel Technology Co., Ltd.

 

Hainan Yile IoT is a national high-tech enterprise in China that focuses on the research, development and application of Internet of Things (“IoT”) technologies. Hainan Yile IoT and its subsidiaries have developed advanced cloud based solutions and products that primarily service automobile rental, ride sharing, and logistics sectors in China. Yangpu Fangyuyuan is engaged in facilitating logistic services through its cloud based platform in China.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, among other things, the Buyer will acquire 100% of the equity interest of REIT Mingde for a total consideration of RMB10,000,000 (approximately $1.57 million) in cash or cash equivalents as mutually agreed to by the parties (the “Acquisition”), which will be paid within one month after execution of the Agreement.

 

The closing of the Acquisition is subject to satisfaction of the following conditions: (i) completion of due diligence of REIT Mingde by the Buyer; (ii) the approval of the Acquisition by the Buyer’s Board of Directors; (iii) receipt of requisite seals, property rights certificates, legal documents and materials and accounting books from REIT Mingde; (iv) no pledge, mortgage, guarantee or other third party rights or other restrictions or limitations on the equity interest of REIT Mingde; (v) no change in the external investment and shareholding of REIT Mingde; (vi) the completion of shareholder change registration with the relevant State Administration of Market Regulation in China.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, after the closing of the Acquisition, Xiaoping Li, who is also the legal representative REIT Mingde, will be appointed as a director and Executive Vice President of the Company.

 

The registration of shareholder change was completed on December 28, 2021. As a result, REIT Mingde became the Company’s indirectly wholly owned subsidiary.
