Explanatory Note

 

On May 24, 2021, Meten EdtechX Education Group Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Company”), entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Aegis Capital Corp. (the “Underwriter”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Underwriter in a firm commitment public offering (the “Offering”) 40,000,000 ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Shares”), for an offering price of $1.0 per share. The Company also granted the Underwriter an option, for a period of 45 days after the closing of this Offering, to purchase an additional 6,000,000 ordinary shares to cover over-allotments. The Company expects to receive $40 million in gross proceeds from this Offering, assuming no exercise of the over-allotment option, before deducting underwriting discounts and other related offering expenses.

 

The Company issued press releases on May 21, 2021 to announce the proposed offering, on May 24, 2021 in connection with the pricing of the Offering, and on May 26, 2021 in connection with the closing of the Offering. Copy of all press releases are furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1, Exhibit 99.2 and Exhibit 99.3, respectively.

 

The Shares were offered under the Company’s registration statement on Form F-3 (File No. 333-256087), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 13, 2021 and was declared effective on May 21, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”). A final prospectus supplement to the Registration Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 25, 2021.

 

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1. A copy of the opinion of Conyers Dill & Pearman, as special counsel in the Cayman Islands to the Company, regarding the legality of the issuance and sale of the Shares in the Offering is attached hereto as Exhibit 5.1.

 

Prior to the completion of this Offering, the exercise price of the Company’s outstanding warrants was $2.50 per share, subject to a “full-ratchet” anti-dilution protection with respect to subsequent equity sales in which any person will be entitled to acquire ordinary shares at an effective price per share that is lower than the then exercise price of the warrants. As the Company offers its ordinary shares at a per share price of $1.00 in this public offering, which is lower than $2.50 per share, the exercise price for the Company’s warrants is reset to $1.00 per share. A copy of the notice to the warrant holders is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.4.

 

This report shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

 

This current report on form 6-K is incorporated by reference into the Company’s registration statements on Form F-3 (File No. 333-256087) and Form S-8 (File No. 333-251806 and File No. 333-248883).
