9F Inc. Enters into a Binding Term Sheet with Potential Investors

 

This current report on Form 6-K was submitted in connection with a binding term sheet 9F Inc. (the “Company”) entered into with two established Asian investors on June 7, 2021. Pursuant to the term sheet, the potential investors have agreed to negotiate and potentially enter into definitive agreements with the Company for the subscription of newly issued class A ordinary shares of the Company in a private placement transaction. The potential transaction has an aggregate investment amount of approximately US$60 million, and the Company plans to use the proceeds from the potential transaction for investments in licensed internet securities service companies and applications for securities service licenses and digital assets management licenses in Singapore and in the United States. The completion of the potential transaction is subject to the parties’ execution of definitive agreements and customary closing conditions to be stipulated therein.

 

“The potential investors have rich experience in both investments in internet companies and overseas securities investment and asset management services, and have in-depth insight into the relevant industries. By integrating resources and offering their expertise, they can help us better develop our internet securities and digital asset management businesses, and provide users with excellent digital brokerage service,” said Mr. Lei Liu, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
