(“StarLark”), the Golf Rival mobile game franchise and related other games, intellectual properties, business records and specified other assets and liabilities (collectively, the “Transaction”), pursuant to the Master Business Transfer Agreement dated as of August 3, 2021 (the “Agreement”) among Zynga, Beijing Fotoable Technology Limited (“Fotoable”), Funjoy Technology Limited (“Funjoy”), Lvy Technology Limited (“Lvy”), StarLark and certain other parties (collectively with Fotoable, Funjoy, Lvy and StarLark, the “Sellers”).

At closing, including the adjustments set forth in the Agreement, Zynga paid approximately $316 million in cash (the “Closing Cash Consideration”) and issued 20,009,528 shares (the “Zynga Stock Consideration,” and together with the Closing Cash Consideration, the “Total Purchase Consideration”) of Class A common stock of Zynga (the “Zynga Stock”) based on the average closing price of the Zynga Stock during a 30 trading day period preceding the date of the Agreement. The Zynga Stock Consideration was issued in reliance on exemptions from the registration requirements of Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) provided by Section 4(a)(2) and/or Regulation S of the Securities Act.  Pursuant to the Agreement, Zynga expects to file a registration statement on Form S-3 to register the Zynga Stock Consideration for resale within thirty days following the closing date.

Pursuant to the Agreement, $40 million of the Closing Cash Consideration was deposited into an escrow fund in cash as security for certain indemnification obligations of the Sellers.
