Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 26, 2007, Home System Group (the "Company"), its wholly-owned subsidiary Holy (HK) Limited ("HHK") and HHK's wholly-owned subsidiary Ocean Well Profit, Inc. ("Oceanic") entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Agreement") with Zhongshan City Weihe Appliances Co., Ltd. ("Weihe"), and Weihe's shareholders (the "Shareholders"), pursuant to which the Company agrees to acquire 100% of the Shareholders' equity interests in Weihe for approximately $45,000,000 (the "Purchase Price"), $18,000,000 of which is payable in shares of the Company's common stock, valued at $4.00 per share, and $27,000,000 of which is payable within 24 months after the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Agreement. The Closing is expected to occur on or before July 31, 2007. Pursuant to the Agreement, 40% of the cash portion of the Purchase Price is due on the first anniversary of the Closing, and the remaining 60% is due on the second anniversary of the Closing, as evidenced by non interest-bearing unsecured promissory notes ("Notes") to be delivered by the Company to the Shareholders at the Closing, in accordance with their respective ownership interests in Weihe.

The value of the stock portion of the Purchase Price was determined by reference to the average market price of the Company's common stock over the six months prior to the execution of the Agreement during which the average closing price of the Company's Common Stock was $4.00. Therefore, the Company is obligated to issue to 4,500,000 shares of its Common Stock to the Shareholders. At the Closing, Weihe will become Oceanic's wholly-owned subsidiary and the Company's indirectly owned subsidiary.

The Agreement contains the customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties. In addition, the Agreement requires Weihe's current executive officers to continue working in their current respective positions with Weihe for no less than two years after the Closing. In addition, Weihe and the Shareholders agree that if Weihe does not realize (a) US$70 million in sales revenue and US$8.8 million in net income for fiscal the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007 and (b) US$88 million in sales revenue and US$12.6 million in net income for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2008 (together, the "Performance Thresholds"), then at the end of each such fiscal year, the Company will have the right to deduct from the cash portion of the Purchase Price, an amount that is equal to the percentage by which Weihe's net income as determined by its independent auditors misses the net income portion of each such Performance Threshold. All representations and warranties of Weihe and the Shareholders in the Agreement will survive for a period of 24 months after the Closing.

Consummation of the transactions set forth in the Agreement are subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to: (i) absence of any law or order prohibiting the consummation of the transaction; (ii) the continued accuracy of each party's representations and warranties contained in the Agreement; and (iii) compliance with each party's covenants.

Weihe and the Shareholders jointly and severally agreed to indemnify and reimburse the Company for, from and against any damages not in excess of $27,000,000, relating to any untrue representation, misrepresentation or breach of warranty by them contained in the Agreement; their breach or nonfulfillment of any covenant, agreement or other obligations under the Agreement; their pre-Closing liabilities; and any liability, claim, action or proceeding which relates to, arises or results from, or occurs in connection with facts or circumstances relating to the conduct of Weihe's business or events or circumstances existing on or prior to the Closing. The Company agreed to indemnify and reimburse Weihe for and against any damages relating to any untrue representation, misrepresentation or breach of warranty by the Company contained in the Agreement or any breach or nonfulfillment of any covenant, agreement or other obligations of the Company under the Agreement. In addition, under the Agreement, the Company will have the right to setoff from the cash portion of the Purchase Price, any reimbursement amount due and payable under this indemnification provision, and if the damages sustained by the Company are greater than the unpaid portion of the Purchase Price, then Weihe and the Shareholders shall promptly return to the Company that number of share certificates equal to the value of the additional due and payable reimbursement amount.

2


This Agreement may be renegotiated or terminated at any time prior to the Closing; (a) by mutual written consent of the parties; (b) by the Company if, for any reason, it is not satisfied with the results of its due diligence review of Weihe; (c) by the Company if (i) there is an uncured material breach of any covenant or obligation of Weihe or the Shareholders, or (ii) the Company reasonably determines that the timely satisfaction of its Closing conditions has become impossible or impractical; (d) by Weihe if (i) there is an uncured material breach of any covenant or obligation of the Company or (ii) Weihe reasonably determines that the timely satisfaction of its Closing conditions has become impossible or impractical; (e) by either the Company or Weihe if the Closing has not taken place on or before July 31, 2007; or (f) by any of the parties if any governmental body in the United States has issued an order, decree or ruling restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and such party has attempted to use all commercially reasonable efforts to remove such order, decree or ruling. Any term or provision of the Agreement may be waived at any time by the party, which is entitled to the benefits of such term or provision.

Home System Group Announces Acquisition Agreement With Zhongshan City Weihe Appliances Co., LTD

Acquisition to Further Diversify Product Offering and Strengthen Distribution Channels

Los Angeles, CA June 26, 2007 -- Home System Group (HSYT: OTCBB) "Home System Group" or the "Company" based in Guangdong Province, China, an international manufacturer and distributor of home appliance products to major global retailers, today announced that it signed an acquisition agreement with Zhongshan City Weihe Appliances Co., LTD or "Weihe" for a total consideration of $45.0 million (USD) payable in both cash and stock. The transaction is expected to close in July, 2007.

Founded in 1998, Weihe is a leading manufacturer of ceiling fans and residential lighting for the international consumer market. Currently, the Company sells approximately 1,500 different types of decorative ceiling fans and 200 types of lamps which are manufactured across 23 different production lines. Sales are conducted through various distributors who then sell the products to a number of large and established retailers, including several Fortune 500 companies. Weihe employs approximately 1,000 individuals in the areas of production, sales, technical, financial and administrative functions and operates a facility that is located eight miles from Home Systems Group. Weihe has committed to a "make good" net income target for the periods ending December 31, 2007 and 2008 of $8.8 million and $12.6 million respectively. In the event that Weihe does not achieve these respective net income targets, Home System Group will retain the right to deduct the percentage by which the net income is missed for such year from the cash consideration to Weihe. In addition, as a stipulation of the transaction, Weihe's management has committed to remain with the Company for at least the next two years.

Home System Group will pay the Weihe stockholders a purchase price of $27.0 million in cash and 4.5 million shares of restricted common stock of Home System Group, subject to Home System Group's right to set off the cash portion of the purchase price by any reimbursement amounts payable to Home System Group under the agreement or any shortfall of the make good amount. Forty percent of the cash portion of the purchase price will be due to Weihe on the first anniversary of the closing of the transaction, with the remaining sixty percent due by the second anniversary.

"We are pleased to announce this acquisition as Weihe will substantially diversify our product portfolio while allowing us the opportunity to increase sales as we market our collective product portfolio through an exponentially larger distribution channel," commented Mr. Li Wei Qui, CEO and Chairman of Home System Group. "Weihe possesses a modern manufacturing facility that can scale with greater revenues while remaining flexible to changes in customer product preferences. These assets will be invaluable to Home System as we seek to become an increasingly more dominant and larger player in the home appliance market, both domestically and abroad."

The acquisition of Weihe is expected to close by July 31, 2007 and is subject to further due diligence of Weihe. There is no breakup fee associated with the transaction. The Management of Home System Group expects to pay for the acquisition through a combination of cash flow and proceeds from the recently announced private placement.
