(1)

Represents ordinary shares issuable upon conversion of the Loan described herein, including accrued but unpaid interest with respect to the Loan as of May 16, 2022.

(2)

Calculated based upon an aggregate of 46,442,058 ordinary shares as stated in Amendment No. 6 to the Issuer’s registration statement on Form F-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 2, 2022, plus 4,777,038 ordinary shares which are issuable upon conversion of the Loan.


This Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed on April 29, 2022 with respect to the Issuer by the Reporting Persons (the “Original Filing”). Information reported in the Original Filing remains in effect except to the extent that it is amended, restated or superseded by information contained in this Amendment.

This Amendment is being filed to reflect the drawdown of the third tranche (“Third Tranche”) of the Loan in the amount of US$3,000,000 by the Issuer and payment of the Third Tranche by Bifinity UAB to the Issuer on May 16, 2022.

Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment have the respective meanings as set forth in the Original Filing.

 

Item 3

Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

Item 3 is hereby supplemented by inserting the following at the end of the fourth paragraph:

On May 11, 2022, the Board appointed Daniel Ling as chief financial officer of the Issuer.

Item 3 is hereby supplemented by inserting the following at the end of the fifth paragraph:

The third tranche of the Loan, in the amount of US$3,000,000, was drawn down by the Issuer and paid by Bifinity UAB to the Issuer on May 16, 2022.

Item 3 is hereby amended by replacing the sixth and seventh paragraphs with the following:

Bifinity UAB may in its sole and absolute discretion, at any time while any part of the Loan remains outstanding, convert all (or a portion) of a tranche of the Loan (and all accrued but unpaid interest in connection with all (or a portion) of the relevant tranche being converted) into Ordinary Shares at a conversion price of US$1.89 per share (being the 50-day moving average of the Issuer’s public share price quoted on the Nasdaq Stock Market, calculated on the business day prior to the date of the Convertible Loan Agreement). However, Bifinity UAB may not exercise its conversion right to the extent that to do so would cause any breach by the Issuer of any law or regulation applicable to it or, unless a requisite waiver from the provisions of theSingapore Code on Take-overs and Mergers has been obtained, cause Bifinity UAB to hold more than 29.9% of the entire issued share capital of the Issuer. If and when issued, such Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the then existing Ordinary Shares of the Issuer.

No portion of the Loan has been converted into Ordinary Shares as of the date of the filing of this Amendment. If the entire Loan is drawn down and the entire principal amount is converted into Ordinary Shares at the conversion price of US$1.89 per share (but without taking into account any Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of accrued but unpaid interest) and assuming that 46,442,058 Ordinary Shares are issued and outstanding immediately prior to such conversion (being the total number of Ordinary Shares issued and outstanding as of the date of the filing of this Amendment as provided by the Issuer), the Reporting Persons would own approximately 29.1% of the Issuer’s share capital after giving effect to such conversion.


Item 4

Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 is hereby amended by incorporating by reference the information set forth in Item 3 above.

 

Item 5

Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Items 5(a) and 5(b) are hereby amended by replacing them in their entirety with the following:

(a)-(b) The information required by Items 5(a) and 5(b) is set forth in Rows 7-13 of the cover page for each of the Reporting Persons and is incorporated herein by reference. As a result of his ownership of Bifinity UAB, Changpeng Zhao may be deemed to control Bifinity UAB and may be deemed to share beneficial ownership and voting and dispositive power over the ordinary shares of the Issuer which are issuable upon conversion of the Loan.

 

Item 6

Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 is hereby amended by incorporating by reference the information set forth in Item 3 above.


SIGNATURE

After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
