As a result of the ratio change, the Company's ADS holders as of November 9, 2020, namely the record date, should expect to receive four (4) additional ADSs for each ADS held. The effect on the ADS price will take place on November 17, 2020.

No action is required by the Company's ADS holders to effect the ADS Ratio Change. There will be no change to the Company's underlying Ordinary Shares.
