The Company previously announced that Baidu (Hong Kong) Limited had entered into the Share Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which Baidu (Hong Kong) Limited agreed to acquire and JOYY agreed to sell JOYY’s domestic video-based entertainment live streaming business in China. Pursuant to the Share Purchase Agreement, the closing of the proposed acquisition is subject to certain conditions including, among others, obtaining necessary regulatory approvals from governmental authorities, and the Share Purchase Agreement is subject to termination by either party if the closing does not occur by the long stop date.
