The sales group includes the selling company and its subsidiaries (i.e. Wordbee LLC and Wordbee Egypt). The selling company is a technology company incorporated in Luxembourg.

The company has extensive experience in tools and language technology training and consultation for large-scale projects.

The company invested in selling the company in August 2019 because it believed that subscribing to the sale of the company's shares was in line with the Group's focus and future development strategy at the time. The company believes that selling the services provided by the company will enhance translation procedures and development through computer-assisted translation tools and bring benefits to the Group's business development, thereby enhancing the Group's profitability. Since the subscription, the Sales Group has continued to provide services to and obtain services from the Group, with an upward trend. However, according to the company's 2022 annual report, the service fee payable by the Group to sell the Group for the provision of services to the Group is approximately HK$8,000, a significant decrease of 98.99% from the Group's payable sales group service fee of about HK$795,000 for the year ended December 31, 2021. This significant reduction in service fees (whether receivable or payable to the selling group) indicates that the business activities between the group and the selling group may not be as appropriate and appropriate as planned when the company initially invested in the sale of the company in 2019.
