Dr. Huang is the sole owner of Ever Regal and, as such, has the ability to direct the management of the business of Ever Regal, including the power to direct decisions regarding the vote and disposition of securities held by Ever Regal; therefore, Dr. Huang may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of the Ordinary Shares directly owned by Ever Regal. Dr. Huang is also the sole trustee of the Lan Huang 2021 Grantor Retained Annuity Trust and the Lan Huang 2022 Grantor Retained Annuity Trust, and a member of the board of directors of Sincere Efforts Foundation Inc.

Mr. Jia is the sole owner of each of Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time and, as such, has the ability to direct the management of the business of each of Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time, including the power to direct decisions regarding the vote and disposition of securities held by each of Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time; therefore, Mr. Jia may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of the Ordinary Shares directly owned by each of Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time.
 
On May 9, 2023, (i) Ever Regal transferred to three irrevocable trusts (the “Trusts”) for the benefit of Dr. Huang’s children an aggregate of 1,800,000 Ordinary Shares as a gift, and (ii) Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time transferred to certain unaffiliated third-parties (the “Transferees”) 4,445,000 Ordinary Shares and 1,090,000 Ordinary Shares, respectively. As a result of the forgoing transactions, each of Ever Regal, Fairy Eagle and Rosy Time ceased to be deemed the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the outstanding Ordinary Shares of the Issuer.
 
The trustee of the Trusts granted Dr. Huang voting power over the Ordinary Shares described above, and the Transferees granted Mr. Jia proxy to vote their Ordinary Shares.
 
The percentages used in this Schedule 13G/A are calculated based upon the Issuer’s 39,015,476 issued and outstanding Ordinary Shares as of June 30, 2023, as reported by the Issuer in its Form 6-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on February 2, 2024.
