Following the completion of the Offer and the striking out of the Winding Up Petition, the Company and Square Acquisition Co. intend to effect the previously announced merger (the “Merger”), with the Company as the surviving entity. At the effective time of the Merger, each outstanding Ordinary Share (other than those held by Offeror Group) will be converted into the right to receive US$0.30 in cash per Ordinary Share, without interest and less any required withholding taxes; and each ADS issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time, together with the underlying Ordinary Shares represented by such ADS, shall be cancelled in exchange for the right to receive US$6.00 in cash per ADS without interest and less any ADS cancellation fees and other related fees and withholding taxes.
