Puhui Wealth Investment Management Co. Ltd. Announces Financial Results for the Six Months Ended December 31, 2018

Highlighted by Increased Revenues and High Net Worth Clientele

BEIJING, June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Puhui Wealth Investment Management Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: PHCF) ("Puhui" or the "Company"), a third-party wealth management service provider with a focus on wealth management services for high net worth ("HNW") individuals and corporate clients, today announced its financial results for the six months ended December 31, 2018. The Company also filed these results on Form 6-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which can be viewed at www.sec.gov. All amounts in this press release are in USD unless otherwise noted.

Financial and Operating Highlights

  • Total revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2018 were approximately $1.9 million, a 148.1% increase from the same period in 2017.
  • The Company continues to add incremental HNW clientele, with new HNW clients transacting with Puhui totaling 92 for the six months ended December 31, 2018.
  • Following Puhui's completion of its December 2018 initial public offering ("IPO"), the Company has continued to see a strong increase in HNW clients. From January 1, 2019 to May 1, 2019, the number of HNW clients transacting with Puhui was 109.
  • As of December 31, 2018, the Company's subsidiary served as manager or general partner of four funds with an aggregate of approximately $23.5 million under management.
  • The Company's average transaction value per client was $143,972 for the six months ended December 31, 2018.
  • As of May 1, 2019, the Company maintained 7 sales and service locations based in Beijing (3), Shanghai, Suzhou, Qingdao, and Changchun.
  • Established a strategic cooperation with a well-known investment manager, Yingke Innovation Asset Management Co., Ltd., to jointly establish an equity investment fund with a total size of RMB1 billion, to be launched in stages.
  • Signed recent strategic cooperation agreement to jointly offer asset management services with Hongtang Culture Investment Co., which is focused on THANG-GA research, drawing, works collection and market promotion.
  • Puhui had approximately $7.5 million of cash and approximately $14.4 million of working capital as of December 31, 2018.

Mr. Zhe Ji, the Chairman and CEO of the Company, stated, "Puhui had an excellent end to the year in both servicing a higher number of high net worth clientele while also increasing revenues. While our December 31, 2018 financial results were impacted by higher expenses and time devoted to the completion of our December 2018 IPO and listing on Nasdaq, we have seen our brand recognition and clientele increase substantially since this period. Our Company offers a diversified array of products for individuals seeking alternative means for enhancing investment returns."

Mr. Ji continued, "We have been very pleased with our initial performance since our public listing, and feel that there is considerable upside for Puhui to take advantage of China's growing wealth management market. We opened sales and service offices in three new locations since beginning of 2019 and are actively looking to expand our network by opening new sales and service offices throughout China in strategic locations that are leading industrial and business development centers throughout the country. While our intended acquisition of a Hong Kong based financial services company has entered into its late stage pending final approval, we are continuing to seek new acquisition opportunities to broaden our geographic reach outside of mainland China, including but not limited to asset management businesses and businesses with alternative strategies."
