(the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that independent proxy advisory firms ISS and Glass Lewis had issued recommendations that the Company’s stockholders vote “FOR” proposals the Company would submit for stockholder action at a Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for February 16, 2021. The proposals regard the previously announced “Go-Private” transaction to acquire the Company proposed by V99, Inc., a Delaware corporation led by HP Jin, the Company’s Co-Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

This communication is being made in respect of the proposed transaction involving Telenav and V99 Inc. In connection with the proposed transaction, Telenav has filed a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and Telenav mailed the definitive proxy statement and a proxy card to each stockholder of Telenav entitled to vote at the special meeting relating to the proposed transaction. This communication is not intended as a substitute for the proxy statement that Telenav filed with the SEC and sent to its stockholders in connection with the proposed transaction or any other document that Telenav may file with the SEC or send to its stockholders in connection with the proposed transaction. The definitive proxy statement described above contains important information about the proposed merger and related matters. BEFORE MAKING ANY VOTING DECISION, STOCKHOLDERS OF TELENAV ARE URGED TO READ THESE MATERIALS (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED TRANSACTION THAT TELENAV WILL FILE WITH THE SEC WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TELENAV AND THE PROPOSED TRANSACTION. The definitive proxy statement and other relevant materials in connection with the proposed transaction, and any other documents filed by Telenav with the SEC, may be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov) or at Telenav’s website (https://www.telenav.com/) or by contacting Telenav’s Investor Relations at IR@telenav.com.

Participants in the Solicitation

Telenav and its directors and executive officers, including HP Jin and Samuel Chen, may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from Telenav’s stockholders with respect to the proposed transaction. Information about Telenav’s directors and executive officers and their ownership of Telenav’s common stock is set forth in Telenav’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, which was filed with the SEC on August 21, 2020, as amended on October 26, 2020. Additional information regarding the potential participants, and their direct or indirect interests in the proposed transaction, by security holdings or otherwise, are set forth in the definitive proxy statement and other materials on file with SEC in connection with the proposed transaction.

Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This communication, and the document to which the Company refers you in this communication, contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements represent Telenav’s expectations or beliefs concerning future events. Words such as “could,” “will,” “may,” “assume,” “forecast,” “strategy,” “guidance,” “outlook,” “target,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “believe” or “project” and similar expressions are used to identify forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, forward-looking statements contained in this communication include Telenav’s expectations regarding V99’s agreement to acquire Telenav and the expected timing of the completion of the transaction. Forward-looking statements can be affected by assumptions used or known or unknown risks or uncertainties. Consequently, no forward-looking statements can be guaranteed and actual results may differ materially and adversely from those reflected in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the failure to obtain the approval of Telenav’s stockholders, including at least 66 and two-thirds percent of the outstanding shares of common stock owned by stockholders other than HP Jin, Samuel Chen and Changbin Wang, and each of their affiliates and related parties, in connection with the proposed transaction; the failure to consummate or delay in consummating the proposed transaction for other reasons; and the risk that a condition to closing of the proposed transaction may not be satisfied or that required financing for the proposed transaction may not be available or may be delayed. Any forward-looking statement made by Telenav in this communication is based only on information currently available to Telenav and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by applicable law or regulation, Telenav does not assume any obligation to update any such forward-looking statements whether as the result of new developments or otherwise.
