This transaction signifies QuantaSing’s entry into the global online education market and the language learning sector. Following the completion of this transaction, Kelly’s Education will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.
QuantaSing, known for its innovative online platforms like QiNiu for financial literacy, JiangZhen for lifelong learning, and QianChi for senior citizens’ interests, serves an extensive range of learning needs, empowering individuals to consistently enhance their self-value.

On its path to entering the global market, QuantaSing is excited to introduce Hong Kong Online Education (“HKOE”), a brand initially developed by Kelly’s Education, which offers high-quality online English education for children, focusing on delivering value.

By implementing a reasonable pricing strategy, HKOE is determined to make premium English education more affordable, presenting a range of course options that accommodate various needs and budgets.
Mr. Peng Li, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of QuantaSing, said, “We are excited to integrate Kelly’s Education and the new brand HKOE into our ecosystem.
