EAST WINDSOR, N.J., Feb. 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Greenland Technologies Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: GTEC) (“Greenland” or the “Company”) today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) had approved a spin-off of its drivetrain systems business, and approved a plan to separate its electric industrial vehicles and drivetrain systems segments into two independent, publicly-traded companies. The Company expects to create these companies through a tax-free spin-off of its drivetrain systems segment to the Greenland shareholders. There are no guarantees the contemplated spin-off will occur or that it will occur on the anticipated timeline given economic conditions and changes in the financial markets.

The Board previously authorized a review of Greenland Technologies’ business portfolio and capital allocation options, with the goal of enhancing shareholder value. As a result of this review, the Board concluded that the separation of the drivetrain systems business from the remainder of Greenland Technologies, as a pure play, stand-alone company is the most attractive strategic option for growth and enhancing shareholder value.

After the proposed spin-off, Greenland will be solely comprised of the Company’s current industrial electric vehicle business under its HEVI brand. Under the Board-approved strategic plan, Greenland’s existing drivetrain systems for material handling machineries and vehicles would operate post-spin-off as a separate, independently managed and publicly traded company on the OTC market. Current Greenland shareholders will continue to own and trade shares with no change. They will also receive a to be determined allocation of shares in the new spin-off company comprised of the non-industrial EV operations.

Raymond Wang, CEO of Greenland, commented, “Greenland has benefited financially, strategically and operationally from our integrated business structure. However, our success has not been appropriately reflected in our share price due to concerns regarding the global exposure of our business in an increasingly volatile geopolitical environment. At this time, however, we have reached a critical mass in our industrial electric vehicle business, following the rebranding under the HEVI name. After careful review, analysis and discussion, the Board believes the proposed new strategic structure will best allow our teams to focus and to further maximize the return on investment (“ROI”) of our investments given the expected growth of the industrial electric vehicle market. We look forward to updating you as we make progress on the spin-off and will provide additional details as we continue to prioritize unlocking value for all shareholders.”
