Hong Kong, Shanghai, & Florham Park, NJ: Wednesday, June 30, 2021: HUTCHMED (China) Limited (“HUTCHMED” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq/AIM: HCM, HKEX: 13) announces that, in connection with its global offering (the “Global Offering”) of 104,000,000 new ordinary shares (the “Shares”) (as referred to in the Company’s announcement dated June 23, 2021), HUTCHMED has granted the international underwriters an over-allotment option, exercisable until July 23, 2021, to require the Company to issue up to an additional 15,600,000 new Shares to cover over-allocations in the Global Offering.
To facilitate the settlement of such over-allocations in the Global Offering, Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc (“MSI”) has entered into a stock borrowing agreement with Hutchison Healthcare Holdings Limited, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of CK Hutchison Holdings Limited (“CK Hutchison”), pursuant to which MSI may choose to borrow from Hutchison Healthcare Holdings Limited up to 15,600,000 Shares.
The Company was notified that, following the delivery of 15,600,000 Shares on the date of this announcement from Hutchison Healthcare Holdings Limited to MSI pursuant to the terms of such stock borrowing agreement, the shareholding of CK Hutchison in HUTCHMED was reduced from 332,502,740 to 316,902,740 Shares. Taking into account the dilutive impact of the Global Offering and the transfer of Shares pursuant to the stock borrowing agreement, CK Hutchison’s holding was reduced to 37.35 per cent of the total number of voting rights of HUTCHMED. The date on which the notification threshold was crossed was June 30, 2021. Following the expiry of the over-allotment option exercise period and the return by MSI of securities equivalent to the number of Shares borrowed under the stock borrowing agreement, the shareholding of CK Hutchison is expected to return to being 332,502,740 Shares.
CK Hutchison (through Hutchison Healthcare Holdings Limited) retains a right to have the lent shares returned pursuant to the terms of the stock borrowing agreement (which constitutes a financial instrument for the purposes of DTR 5.3.1R(1)(a)), with the voting rights under such financial instrument (relating to the 15,600,000 lent Shares that may be acquired if the right to return is exercised) representing 1.84 per cent of the total number of voting rights of the Company. MSI will not be charged for the delivery of Shares under the stock borrowing agreement.
