The completion of the Offering is subject to market and other conditions. The final issuance price per ADS (in USD) sold in the Offering will be determined following the bookbuilding process.

A registration statement relating to and describing the terms of the Offering has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective.
