The facility, arranged by HSBC’s GBA+ Technology Fund, will further strengthen iClick’s financial position and the execution of strategic initiatives in China’s Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area.
The proceeds will be used to further propel iClick’s digital marketing business, develop iClick’s Enterprise Solutions, and support general corporate purposes.
“We are pleased to announce this facility, which is another tangible sign of the robust growth of iClick and a testament to our future prospects and the strength of our business model,” said Jian “T.J.” Tang, chief executive officer and co-founder of iClick.
“The GBA has proved to offer tremendous opportunities to new economy companies in the region in recent years. The facility will improve our working capital that helps supercharge the growth of our core business, specifically across social and key opinion leader-related channels, whilst allowing us to enhance our ability to provide value-added solutions to brands looking to expand into the Chinese market, especially as we remain fully committed to build out our enterprise solutions business. We are excited to have strong financial partners like HSBC as we continue to grow our pipeline.”
iClick was founded in Hong Kong in 2009 and has developed into one of the largest independent marketing technology platforms in China, with more than 800 million Chinese consumer datasets.
