Huobi Global Limited completed the acquisition of Hong Kong's Pantronics Holdings Limited and took a step closer to enter the stock exchange through a reverse takeover procedure. This is stated in the joint statement of enterprises.

It is reported that the Huobi acquired about 199 million shares of the company through subsidiaries of Huobi Capital and Huobi Universal.

So, at the moment Huobi owns 66.26% of Pantronics Holdings. The average price of the share in the transaction was HK $ 2.72 ($ 0.35), and the total value of the stake is about $ 70 million.

Note that earlier Huobi was going to take over most of the shares of Pantronics Holdings. It was assumed that the chairman of Huobi Group Li Lin will become the owner of 73.73% stake in Pantronics.

Reverse takeover procedure assumes that a non-public company acquires a public company and automatically enters the stock exchange.

Earlier, the bitcoin-exchange Huobi Global announced the launch of a new platform designed for automatic listing of tokens.
