ITEM 1. Security and Issuer

 

Item 1 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

Common Shares, $0.01 par value (the “Common Shares”), of Global Sources Ltd. (the “Issuer”), a Bermuda corporation whose principal executive offices are located at Canon’s Court, 22 Victoria Street, Hamilton HM 12, Bermuda.

 

This Amendment No. 13 amends the Schedule 13D filed on December 8, 2003 (as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on November 18, 2008, Amendment No. 2 filed on January 13, 2009, Amendment No. 3 filed on January 22, 2009, Amendment No. 4 filed on August 16, 2010, Amendment No. 5 filed on October 15, 2010, Amendment No. 6 filed on December 23, 2011, Amendment No. 7 filed on November 22, 2013, Amendment No. 8 filed on June 20, 2014, Amendment No. 9 filed on August 7, 2015, Amendment No. 10 filed on December 10, 2015, Amendment No. 11 filed on April 28, 2016, and Amendment No. 12 filed on May 24, 2017, the “Schedule 13D”). Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule 13D, as amended.

 

ITEM 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

 

On July 24, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., Hong Kong time, a special general meeting of shareholders of the Issuer was held at the Board Room, 26th Floor, Tower B, Southmark, 11 Yip Hing Street, Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. At the special general meeting, the Issuer’s shareholders voted in favor of, among others, the proposal to approve the agreement and plan of amalgamation, dated as of May 23, 2017, as amended on May 25, 2017 and as may be further amended from time to time (the “Amalgamation Agreement”), by and among the Issuer, Expo Holdings I Ltd (“Parent”) and Expo Holdings II Ltd. (“Amalgamation Sub”), providing for the amalgamation of Amalgamation Sub and the Issuer (the “Amalgamation”) with the amalgamated company resulting from the Amalgamation continuing as a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares (the “Amalgamated Company”) and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.

 

On August 28, 2017, pursuant to the terms of the Amalgamation Agreement, Amalgamation Sub and the Issuer were amalgamated with the Amalgamated Company continuing as a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Amalgamation Agreement, at the effective time of the Amalgamation, each issued and outstanding Common Share was automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount equal to US$20.00 in cash, without interest.

 

Following the completion of the Amalgamation, the Issuer will cease to have Common Shares listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market after the filing of Form 25. In addition, 90 days after the filing of Form 15 in connection with the completion of the Amalgamation or such other period as may be determined by the SEC, registration of the Issuer’s securities registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, will be terminated.

 

As a result of these transactions, Mr. Hinrichs, Hinrich Foundation and Hinrich Investments no longer beneficially own any Common Shares.
