Beijing, China, July 12, 2018 China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ:CNTF) (TechFaith or the Company) today announced that Techfaith Wireless Technology Group Limited (TechFaith Wireless), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has entered into a share purchase agreement (the Agreement) with an unrelated third party, pursuant to which TechFaith Wireless will sell its 100% ownership in Charm Faith Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TechFaith Wireless, for a total consideration of RMB710 million, subject to certain price adjustment mechanisms and a detailed installment payment schedule.
