BEIJING, June 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- China Liberal Education Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: CLEU) ("China Liberal," the "Company," or "we"), a China-based company that provides smart campus solutions and other educational services, today announced that on June 9, 2022, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, China Liberal (Beijing) Education Technology Co., Ltd. ("China Liberal Beijing"), entered into a definitive stock purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Beijing Cloud Class Technology Co., Ltd. ("Cloud Class") to acquire from Cloud Class 100% of the issued equity interests of Beijing Oriental Wisdom Cultural Development Co., Ltd. ("Oriental Wisdom"), an integrated education service provider focusing on operating jointly-managed academic programs in the vocational higher education industry in China. This acquisition is a critical initiative of the Company's business strategy of boosting the Company's development in the vocational education industry through integrating enterprises and developing vocational education across various industries.

Pursuant to the Agreement, China Liberal Beijing agrees to acquire 100% of the equity interests of Oriental Wisdom from Cloud Class in consideration of 7,000,000 ordinary shares of the Company, subject to certain payment schedules set forth in the Agreement.

Following the completion of the acquisition, the Company believes that it will be able to develop curriculum systems with trusted teacher resources and integrate professional skills and knowledge into liberal arts education, overcoming the obstacles many higher education institutions face in professional studies and reformations. Meanwhile, with a large and increasing number of students, the Company expects to expand its services to internship referrals, project outsourcing, and multi-level cooperation with leading companies for talent recruitment and training, providing students with premium employment opportunities.

Ms. Ngai Ngai Lam, Chairperson and CEO of China Liberal, commented, "We are excited to acquire Oriental Wisdom and it is another milestone for the Company to move toward our goal of contributing to the vocational education sector in China. With the recent favorable governmental policies and increasing government budgets for vocational education, we believe this acquisition demonstrates China Liberal's long-term strategic vision. Additionally, as the demand for digitalization grows in the education sector, we expect to leverage our advantages in technology, research and development (R&D) resources, and patented products to further cooperate with universities and colleges and assist them in fulfilling their needs for smart-campus management by enhancing their software system in order to achieve campus planning and inter-department coordination. The all-in-one teaching machine, AI-Space, will serve as the core of our hardware system and deliver online and in-person integrated teaching solutions to various educational institutions, allowing them to adapt to various teaching scenarios and improve the overall teaching quality. Looking forward, we will proactively expand our business in vocational education and continue to put efforts into education digitalization as we aim to benefit more students who are in vocational education and create more value for our shareholders."
