The change of company name will better reflect the recent change of control of the Company, and provide the Company with a more appropriate corporate image and identity which will benefit our future business development and is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole."
Mr. Tong continued, 'ACS is one of the world’s leading smart card reader suppliers and has succeeded in expanding its End-to-End solution market in recent years. With its well-established businesses in technology, the new shareholder is expected to further enhance the Group’s highly recognised marketing capabilities by bringing abundant resources in its expertise, capital and other aspects. Looking ahead, the Group would like to develop and engage in the business of investment in and asset management of technology related business, with a view to drawing the synergies between two companies. We are committed to building the Company into HNA Technology Group’s listing flagship of technology in Hong Kong, thereby maximising shareholder value."
