Expects to Record a 56.5% YoY Increase in Profit Attributable to Owners of the Company for the Year Ended December 31, 2021

HONG KONG, March 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — China Renaissance Holdings Limited ("China Renaissance" or the "Company"; stock code: 1911.HK) announced today that, based on the preliminary review of the unaudited consolidated management accounts for the year ended December 31, 2021, it expects to record full-year 2021 profit attributable to owners of the Company of RMB1,624.4 million, a 56.5% increase over the year ended December 31, 2020.

China Renaissance’s profit increase was largely driven by a gain of RMB844.2 million from the change in fair value of the Company’s call option to acquire interest in China Renaissance Securities (China) Co., Ltd. ("CR Securities"), the turnaround of CR Securities from loss to profit, as well as an increase in operating profit of the Company’s investment banking segment in 2021.

Despite challenging market conditions in the second half of 2021, the Company still managed to achieve reasonable net investment gains, with active exits in selective portfolio investments. The Company will continue to closely monitor market risks and exposures, and will utilize its solid balance sheet to offer strong support against future uncertainties in the market.
