Hengguang Holding Co., Limited

General Information

(Note: From the prospectus – The IPO consists of shares only in the holding company, incorporated in the Cayman Islands. You are NOT investing in the underlying business, Heng Guang Insurance, or the VIE, the Sichuan Heng Guang Insurance Agency Co. Ltd., in China.)

We are an insurance agency company operating in China.

We derive our revenue primarily from commissions and fees paid by insurance companies, typically calculated as a percentage of premiums paid by customers to the insurance companies that we represent. As of the date of this prospectus, we have relationships with over 70 insurance companies in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and are able to offer a variety of insurance products to our customers, such as automobile insurance, casualty and accident insurance, construction and engineering insurance, liability insurance, property insurance, health insurance and life insurance.

We help consumers select the right insurance to purchase but represent the insurance companies in the transactions.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2021, 61.78% of our total revenue was attributed to our top five insurance company partners.

As of the date of this prospectus, we had 54 locations (branch offices) throughout China to sell the insurance products. A large component of our cost of revenues is commissions paid to our individual sales agents.

Our business is conducted by Heng Guang Insurance, our VIE entity in the PRC, and its subsidiaries and branch offices, using Chinese dollars (the “RMB”), the legal currency of China.

Our consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars. These dollar references are based on the exchange rate of RMB to United States dollars, determined as of a specific date or for a specific period.

**Note: Revenue and net loss figures are in U.S. dollars for the 12 months that ended June 30, 2022.

(Note: Hengguang Holding Co. Limited cut its IPO to 2.75 million shares – down from 4.0 million shares – and kept the assumed IPO price at $4.00 – to raise $11.0 million in an F-1/A filing dated March 7, 2023. By cutting the number of shares, Hengguang reduced the IPO’s estimated proceeds by 31.3 percent to $11.0 million – down from $16.0 million under the previous terms.)

(Background: Hengguang Holding Co. Ltd. previously was expected to price on Jan. 10, 2023, to trade Jan. 11 – and the deal was postponed. Hengguang Holding Co. Ltd. had  filed an F-1/A on Jan. 6, 2023, in which it updated its financial statements through June 30, 2022, and it kept the same terms and the same book-runner as in its F-1/A filings in December 2022 and September 2022. In early September 2022: Hengguang Holding Co., Limited cut the size of its IPO to 4.0 million shares, down from 4.4 million shares, and cut the price to $4.00, the low end of its $4.00-to-$5.00 price range, to raise $16 million, according to an F-1/A filing dated Sept. 7, 2022. In an F-1/A filing dated June 30, 2022, Hengguang Holding Co., Limited disclosed updated financial statements in U.S. dollars for the year ended Dec. 31, 2021; this was an update from a March 30, 2022, F-1/A filing. The original terms – 4.4 million shares at $4.00 to $5.00 – were disclosed in the March 30, 2022, filing (F-1/A). Hengguang Holding filed its F-1 on Jan. 18, 2022.)
