Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Shenzhen Keweien & Guangzhou Kewei

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2022/ Guardforce AI Co., Limited ("Guardforce AI" or "Company") (NASDAQ:GFAI)(NASDAQ:GFAIW), an integrated security solutions provider, announced today the signing of the definitive agreement of the previously proposed acquisition of Shenzhen Keweien Robot Service Co., Ltd ("SZ") and Guangzhou Kewei Robot Technology Co., Ltd ("GZ"). This acquisition is expected to serve an integral role in the growth of Guardforce AI's robotics as a service (RaaS) business initiative. This acquisition is expected to be closed by end of April 2022.

The acquisition purchase price of US$10,000,000 will be paid in a mix of cash (10%) and restricted ordinary shares of the Company (90%). Guardforce AI is presently listed on the U.S. Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "GFAI." For purposes of the definitive acquisition agreement, each share will be valued at US$4.20.
