*

Calculation is based upon 354,341,528 issued and outstanding ordinary shares of the Issuer as of December 31, 2022, being the sum of (i) 299,797,728 Class A ordinary shares and (ii) 54,543,800 Class B ordinary shares. Each holder of Class A ordinary shares is entitled to one vote per share and each holder of Class B ordinary shares is entitled to 20 votes per share on all matters submitted to them for vote. Class B ordinary shares are convertible at any time by the holder thereof into Class A ordinary shares on a one-for-one basis. Class A ordinary shares are not convertible into Class B ordinary shares under any circumstances. Changlin Liang, thereby beneficially owns 81.2% of the aggregate voting power of the Issuer, as of December 31, 2022.


This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13G (the “Amendment”) relates to the Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.000002 per share (“Class A Ordinary Shares”), and class B ordinary shares, par value US$0.000002 per share (“Class B Ordinary Shares”) of Dingdong (Cayman) Limited (the “Issuer”), and amends and supplements the Schedule 13G (the “Original 13G”, and as so amended and supplemented, the “Schedule 13G”) previously filed Reporting Persons therein with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 14, 2022.

Except as specifically amended by this Amendment, items in the Original Schedule 13G are unchanged.

 

Item 2(a).

Name of Person Filing:

Item 2(s) is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

  1.

DDL Group Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company limited by shares;

 

  2.

4DDL Holding Limited, a British Virgin Islands limited liability company;

 

  3.

EatBetter Holding Limited, a British Virgin Islands limited liability company; and

 

  4.

Changlin Liang, a citizen of People’s Republic of China.

Each party listed above is collectively being referred to herein as the Reporting Persons.

 

Item 4.

Ownership:

Item 4 is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

The information required by Items 4(a) - (c) is set forth in Rows (5) - (11) of the cover page for each Reporting Person hereto and is incorporated herein by reference for each such Reporting Person.

The percentages set forth in this Schedule 13G are calculated based upon a total of 354,341,528 issued and outstanding ordinary shares of the Issuer as of December 31, 2022, being the sum of (i) 299,797,728 Class A Ordinary Shares and (ii) 54,543,800 Class B Ordinary Shares.

On June 2022, EatTogether Holding Limited (“EatTogether”), a British Virgin Islands company wholly owned by Changlin Liang transferred all Class A Ordinary Shares it then directly held to 4DDL Holding Limited (“4DDL Holding”), a company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of British Virgin Islands (“BVI”) which is wholly owned by Changlin Liang. Considering both EatTogether Holding and 4DDL Holding are controlled by Changlin Liang, such transfer was conducted between two entities under Changlin Liang’s common control. Upon completion of such transfer, EatTogether ceased to be the Issuer’s direct shareholder and 4DDL Holding became a direct shareholder of the Issuer.

In June 2022, to better reflect employees’ beneficiary interest in the Issuer, and streamline the shareholding structure, EatBetter Holding Limited (“EatBetter”) entered into instruments of transfer with each of Eat Gracefully Holding Limited (“Eat Gracefully”), a company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of BVI, and Glory Graze Holding Limited (“Glory Graze”), a company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of BVI, and transferred certain of its shares then holding to the two entities. Simultaneously, the shares in EatBetter held by Eat Gracefully and Glory Graze were repurchased by EatBetter at nil consideration, and Eat Gracefully and Glory Graze ceased to be the shareholders of EatBetter. Such transfer of shares was made for the sole purpose of streamlining the shareholding structure, and there were no sales of shares involved. Eat Gracefully is an entity controlled by Le Yu, the chief strategy officer of the Issuer, and Glory Graze is another ESOP platform of the Issuer.

Each holder of Class A Ordinary Shares is entitled to one vote per share and each holder of Class B Ordinary Shares is entitled to 20 votes per share on all matters submitted to them for vote. Class B Ordinary Shares are convertible at any time by the holder thereof into Class A Ordinary Shares on a one-for-one basis. Class A Ordinary Shares are not convertible into Class B Ordinary Shares under any circumstances.
