(1) These shares may be represented by the Registrant’s American Depositary Shares, or ADSs, each of which represents ten Class A ordinary shares, US$0.00005 par value per share, of the Registrant. ADSs issuable upon deposit of the securities registered hereby have been registered under a separate registration statement on Form F-6 (333-192259).
(2) Covers additional shares issuable under the 2011 Share Incentive Plan of 500.com Limited. Pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), this Registration Statement includes an indeterminate number of additional shares which may be offered and issued to prevent dilution from stock splits, stock dividends or similar transactions as provided in the above-referenced plan.
(3) The proposed maximum offering price per share is calculated as the average of the high price of $14.52, and the low price of $13.69, for the Registrant’s ADSs as listed on the New York Stock Exchange on January 28, 2019, or $14.11, divided by ten, the then ordinary share-to-ADS ratio, which is equal to $1.411.
(4) Pursuant to Rule 457(c) and (h), the proposed maximum aggregate offering price is calculated as the 36,394,560 shares reserved for issuance under the 2011 Share Incentive Plan multiplied by the average of the high and low prices for the Registrant’s ADSs as listed on the New York Stock Exchange on January 28, 2019 or $14.11, divided by ten, the then ordinary share-to-ADS ratio, which is equal to an aggregate offering price of approximately $51,352,724.16.
