Item 15   Additional Information
Item 15(c) is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:
On July 29, 2022, at 10:00 am (Beijing time), an extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Company was held at Block 2 Tower B, No. 22 Pingguo Shequ, Bai Zi Wan Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100022, People’s Republic of China. At the extraordinary general meeting, the shareholders of the Company authorized and approved the Merger Agreement, the plan of merger required to be filed with the Registrar of Companies of the Cayman Islands, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit A to the Merger Agreement (the “Plan of Merger”) and the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Merger.
On August 12, 2022, the Company and Merger Sub filed the Plan of Merger with the Registrar of Companies of the Cayman Islands, which was registered by the Registrar of Companies of the Cayman Islands as of August 12, 2022, pursuant to which the Merger became effective on August 12, 2022 (the “Effective Time”). As a result of the Merger, the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.
At the Effective Time, each Share issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, other than the Excluded Shares, the Dissenting Shares and Class A Ordinary Shares represented by ADSs, has been cancelled and ceased to exist in exchange for the right to receive the Per Share Merger Consideration in cash, and each ADS (other than the ADSs representing the Excluded Shares) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, together with the underlying Class A Ordinary Shares represented by such ADSs, has been cancelled and ceased to exist in exchange for the right to receive the Per ADS Merger Consideration in cash.
At the Effective Time, the Excluded Shares and the ADSs representing the Excluded Shares, in each case issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, were cancelled and ceased to exist without payment of any consideration or distribution therefor, and the Dissenting Shares were cancelled and ceased to exist in exchange for the right to receive only the payment of the fair value of such Dissenting Shares determined in accordance with Section 238 of the Cayman Islands Companies Act.
At the Effective Time, each Company Option granted pursuant to the Company’s 2015 Stock Incentive Plan that was outstanding and unexercised as of the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, was cancelled, and the holder thereof was entitled to receive an amount in cash, without interest, payable as soon as reasonably practicable following the Effective Time equal to the product of (i) the excess, if any, of (A) the Per Share Merger Consideration, over (B) the exercise price, multiplied by (ii) the number of Class A Ordinary Shares subject to such Company Option as of the Effective Time. Each Company Option with the exercise price that is equal to or greater than the Per Share Merger Consideration was cancelled at the Effective Time without the payment of consideration therefor.
At the Effective Time, each Company Option granted pursuant to the Company’s 2020 Stock Incentive Plan or 2021 Stock Incentive Plan, in each case, that was outstanding, vested and unexercised as of the Effective Time, was assumed by Parent and automatically converted into an option for ordinary shares of Parent (each, an “Assumed Option”) under an equity incentive plan to be established by Parent equal to the product of (A) the number of Class A Ordinary Shares that were subject to the corresponding Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, multiplied by (B) a fraction (such ratio, the “Exchange Ratio”), the numerator of which is the Per Share Merger Consideration and the denominator of which is the fair market value of an ordinary share of Parent, and rounding such product down to the nearest whole number of ordinary shares of Parent, with an exercise price per share subject to the Assumed Option equal to the exercise price for which the corresponding Company Option was exercisable immediately prior to the Effective Time divided by the Exchange Ratio, and rounded up to the nearest whole cent. Each Assumed Option will be subject to the same terms and conditions as to vesting, exercisability and forfeiture as the corresponding Company Option as in effect on the date of the Merger Agreement.
At the Effective Time, each Company Option granted pursuant to the Company’s 2020 Stock Incentive Plan or 2021 Stock Incentive Plan that was unvested as of the Effective Time was cancelled without the payment of consideration therefor.
In addition, the Company terminated each of the 2015 Stock Incentive Plan, the 2020 Stock Incentive Plan and the 2021 Stock Incentive Plan, and all award agreements evidencing Company Options, effective as of the Effective Time.
 
2

 
The Company instructed the ADS Depositary to terminate the Company’s ADS program, effective as of the Effective Time.
As a result of the Merger, the ADS program for the ADSs will terminate and the ADSs will no longer be listed on any securities exchange or quotation system, including Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”), and the Company will cease to be a publicly traded company. The Company has requested Nasdaq to file an application on Form 25 with the SEC to remove the ADSs from listing on Nasdaq and withdraw registration of the Company’s registered securities under the Exchange Act. The deregistration will become effective 90 days after the filing of Form 25 or such shorter period as may be determined by the SEC. In addition, the Company will suspend its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act by filing a certification and notice on Form 15 with the SEC. The Company’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act will be suspended immediately as of the filing date of the Form 15 and will terminate once the deregistration becomes effective.
