Entry into of a Material Definitive Agreement

 

As previously reported, in April 2022, Global Cord Blood Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a series of Stock Purchase Agreements, each dated April 29, 2022 (the “SPAs” and, collectively, the “SPA”), between the Company and the holders of approximately 95% of the outstanding shares of common stock (the “CLK Shares”) of Cellenkos, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Cellenkos”) providing for the acquisition by the Company of such CLK Shares (the “CLNK Acquisition”), subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions set forth in the SPA in exchange for an aggregate of approximately 65.7 million of the Company’s ordinary shares of US$0.0001 par value per share (the “Ordinary Shares”).

 

On June 27, 2022, the Company and the counterparties to each of the SPAs entered into an amendment thereto providing that the date by which such acquisition shall have been consummated in order to avoid the terminability thereof by either of the parties shall be extended from June 28, 2022 to July 28, 2022. The foregoing is a summary of the material provisions of such first amendment and this summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of first amendment to Stock Purchase Agreement, which is incorporated by reference in its entirety herein and a copy of which is attached to this Report of Foreign Private Issuer on Form 6-K as Exhibit 4.1.

 

The CLNK Acquisition and the possibility of its completion is the subject of pending legal proceedings brought by Blue Ocean Structure Investment Company Limited (“Blue Ocean”) against, among others, the Company. Among other things, completion of the CLNK Acquisition is currently prohibited by an interim injunction obtained by Blue Ocean on May 12, 2022 (as varied). The Company cautions its shareholders and others considering trading its ordinary shares that the status of the CLNK Acquisition is still the subject of legal proceedings.
