HONG KONG, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Union Bridge Holdings Limited (OTCQB: UGHL) ("Union Bridge" or the "Company"), through its subsidiary Phoenix Creation Global Limited ("Phoenix"), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Beijing Yi Du Bai Shan Management Limited ("Yi Du") regarding development and operation of senior healthcare facilities in Beijing, China.
Yi Du, which was established in 2016, manages 11 home care centers in Beijing that provide care and services to seniors living at home and one senior skilled nursing facility that provides around 40 beds for the elderly in Beijing, with five other home care centers under construction. Yi Du plans to construct and manage 20 and 50 additional home care centers in Beijing in 2018 and 2019 respectively, subject to obtaining necessary government approvals. Subject to satisfactory due diligence and negotiation and execution of definitive agreements, Phoenix intends to acquire 85% of the shares of Yi Du.
Mr. Joseph Ho, Chief Executive Officer of Union Bridge, said, "Through the acquisition of a controlling interest in Yi Du, with its home care centers in Beijing, where the regulations are more mature and clearer than other cities in China, we would have an experienced team of professionals in the home care industry, which would help us to further expand that business in China in the future."
The Company also announced that it would not be further pursuing a transaction with Beijing Yi Yue Chong-En Elderly Care Investment Management Limited with respect to senior day care satellite centers under the previously announced MOU signed with them in February 2018.
