HONG KONG, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HKBN Ltd ("HKBN"; SEHK stock code: 1310) is pleased to announce the completion of its acquisition of WTT Holding Corp ("WTT") today.

Morgan Securities (Asia Pacific) Limited, KPMG and Latham & Watkins LLP are pleased to announce the sponsorship of at least two Room to Read schools in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka for a lasting positive impact.


John Wood, Founder of Room to Read, said, "We could not be more thrilled to have a successful merger being celebrated in a way that unites purpose and profitability. We have always believed in the power of capitalism to make the world a better place, but to do that we need enlightened leadership. This deal team has created an inspiring model by tying a social outcome to the successful completion of a merger. We hope that other leaders will emulate this example."


HKBN was advised by J.P. Morgan Securities (Asia Pacific) Limited as financial advisor and Latham & Watkins LLP as legal counsel on the transaction. WTT was advised by Goldman Sachs (Asia) L.L.C. as financial advisor and Clifford Chance as legal counsel on the transaction. Clifford Chance also advised the group on competition matters.
