The Company’s American depositary shares (the “ADSs”), each representing two Class A ordinary shares of the Company, will continue to be listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). The Proposed Listing is a dual-primary listing of the Class A ordinary shares of the Company on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Investors in the Global Offering will only be able to purchase Class A ordinary shares and will not be able to take delivery of ADSs. Upon the Proposed Listing, the Class A ordinary shares listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange will be convertible with the ADSs listed on the NYSE.
The Global Offering initially comprises 4,250,000 new Class A ordinary shares under the Hong Kong Public Offering and 80,750,000 new Class A ordinary shares for the international offering (the “International Offering”), representing approximately 5% and 95%, respectively, of the total number of Offer Shares in the Global Offering, subject to reallocation and over-allotment. Subject to the level of oversubscription in the Hong Kong Public Offering and pursuant to the clawback mechanism as described in the Hong Kong prospectus, the total number of Offer Shares available under the Hong Kong Public Offering could be adjusted to up to a maximum of 17,000,000 new Class A ordinary shares, representing 20% of the Offer Shares initially available under the Global Offering. In addition, the Company expects to grant the international underwriters an over-allotment option to require the Company to issue up to an additional 12,750,000 new Class A ordinary shares in the International Offering, representing no more than 15% of the total number of Offer Shares initially available under the Global Offering.
The offer price for the Hong Kong Public Offering (the “Hong Kong Offer Price”) will be not more than HK$180.00 per share (the “Maximum Offer Price”). The offer price for the International Offering tranche of the Global Offering (the “International Offer Price”) may be set higher than the Maximum Offer Price. The Company expects to set the International Offer Price on or about June 30, 2021, Hong Kong time, by taking into consideration, among other factors, the closing price of the ADSs on the NYSE on the last trading day on or before June 30, 2021, Hong Kong time, and investor demand during the marketing process. The final Hong Kong Offer Price will be set at the lower of the final International Offer Price and the Maximum Offer Price of HK$180.00 per share. The Offer Shares will be traded in board lots of 100 Class A ordinary shares.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Global Offering for expansion of its product portfolio and development of more advanced technologies; acceleration of its business expansion, by enhancing brand recognition, acquiring customers through omni-channel marketing strategies and expanding its sales and service touch points both domestically and internationally; enhancement of production capability, including expansion of capacity, upgrade of manufacturing facilities and development of manufacturing technologies; and general corporate purposes, including working capital needs.
Fully Electronic Application Process for the Hong Kong Public Offering
The Company has decided to adopt a fully electronic application process for the Hong Kong Public Offering, with no printed copies of prospectuses or application forms. A fully electronic application process is consistent with the way in which the Company’s stakeholders engage and interact with each other and the Company. The Company believes such method will also help to mitigate the environmental impact of printing and minimize the use of natural resources, among others. The prospectus will be made available at the website of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange at www.hkexnews.hk under the “HKEXnews > New Listings > New Listing Information” section and the Company’s website at www.xiaopeng.com.

The Hong Kong Public Offering will commence at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, June 25, 2021 Hong Kong time and will close at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 Hong Kong time.

Morgan Securities (Asia Pacific) Limited, Merrill Lynch (Asia Pacific) Limited, Citigroup Global Markets Asia Limited and CLSA Limited are the Joint Global Coordinators of the Global Offering.
