Company Information

Grand has been established in 2014 by Yang Xiao and other founding shareholders for the purpose of identifying, acquiring and investing in small to medium-sized companies with high growth potential, principally operating in the People's Republic of China.

Grand Group, an investing company under the AIM Rules primarily invests in established businesses with either a technology or intellectual property which the Board believes will benefit from access to Grand's university research resources. On 9 May 2014, Grand entered into a strategic co-operation agreement with the TKK Society, which the Directors believe will give it access to a wide range of Chinese and international academic contacts and their associated research facilities.

The Company intends to identify companies in growing business sectors, often in conjunction with members of the TKK Society. The Company aims to develop its investment opportunities in the identified sectors through cooperation with these partners.

The TKK Society was founded in 1992 by several world-renowned scholars, including Nobel Prize winners Prof. Yang Zhenning, Prof. Ding Zhaozhong, Prof. Li Yuanzhe, Prof. Tian Changlin (former chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley) and Prof. Wang Gengwu, Chairman of the East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore, and former vice-chancellor of the University of Hong Kong. It aims to promote the ideas of Tan Kah Kee. Apart from promoting educational and scientific activities, the TKK Society also promotes research and development assisting in the establishment of an international network of educational and economic cooperation. Many of its members and affiliates are well-known international and local universities and professors, government and business leaders in South East Asia (including Robert Kuok, Zhuang Yanlin and Lucio Tan).

The Tan Kah Kee Foundation is named after and was initially founded and funded by the family of Mr Tan Kah Kee, a Chinese entrepreneur, philanthropist and leader of overseas Chinese communities. Mr Tan Kah Kee founded several educational establishments in China and Southeast Asia, predominantly in Fujian, including Xiamen University, the first university founded by an overseas-based Chinese individual in the history of China's modern education system and Jimei University. Mr Tan Kah Kee also founded the Hong Kong Chiyu Bank and co-founded OCBC Bank, Singapore's second largest bank (by total assets).

The Company plans to focus investments ranging from £3 million - £50 million.
