2019-06-19

BEIJING, February 5, 2019 -- RYB Education, Inc. (“RYB” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RYB), a leading early childhood education service provider in China, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire approximately 70% of a leading Singapore-based  private childhood education group for approximately RMB125 million in cash. 
北京,2019年2月5日--中国领先早期幼儿教育服务提供机构,红黄蓝教育公司(以下简称“红黄蓝教育”或“公司”)(NYSE: RYB)今日宣布公司已签署合同,以约1.25亿人民币的总对价现金收购一新加坡儿童教育集团约70%的股权。

Ms. Yanlai Shi, the Company’s Co-founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are excited to add this portfolio of childhood education assets to our platform. This acquisition expands our brands and service offerings to a wider audience and additional jurisdictions. Moreover, the international English and bilingual curriculum, along with the high-quality education management team we are acquiring, will generate great synergy with our China-based operations and enhance our competitive edge in our core China early childhood education market.” 
红黄蓝教育联合创始人,董事与首席执行官史燕来女士说道:“新加坡这一收购项目对公司有重要战略价值。这一项目不仅将公司的教育服务扩展到了更多的国家和市场,同时,这一收购项目带来的国际水准的英文和双语教育内容以及高素质的管理团队也将与公司现有的业务形成强大的整合优势,进一步加强公司在中国早期教育这一核心市场的竞争优势。”

“This annoucement, together with our prior acquisitions and alliances, exemplifies our strategic and measured diversification across multiple business lines, products and geographies. It broadens our educational platform while allowing us to remain primarily focused on providing educational services to children from infancy to 6 years old. In addition, this acquisition demonstrates our commitment to constantly improving the quality of our educational offerings, and we firmly believe that this initiative will deliver long-term value for our shareholders,” Ms. Shi concluded.
“这一战略收购项目,加之公司之前进行的其他收购和项目合作,已经将公司成功拓展成为多产品与服务线、多地域、多品牌的多元化教育集团。当然,我们依然非常专注于0到6岁的早期教育。这一收购项目,也进一步证明公司一如既往地专注于持续提升我们的教育品质。我们坚信这也将为我们的股东带来长期的股东价值。”

In conjunction with the above purchase, the Company intends to change its name from RYB Education to GEH Education to better reflect its growing platform of multiple brands, products and services in multiple markets and geographies. The Company’s board of directors has approved the name change and it will be submitted to the Company’s general meeting for further approval by the shareholders. The proposed new Company name is intended to strengthen the core RYB brand for kindergarten and Play-and-Learn services as well as other brands on the platform while providing a mechanism for continued brand, product and service expansion. 
有鉴于这些战略进展,为体现集团多品牌、多业务线、多地域经营的新格局,公司董事会已批准公司将集团名称由原来的“红黄蓝教育公司”更名为“GEH教育集团”。这一更名提议尚需经过股东大会批准。这一变更,将使得公司在持续稳定发展“红黄蓝”品牌幼儿园和亲子园业务的同时,也能够更好地兼容并蓄更多的品牌、业务线;拓展更广泛的儿童教育市场。
