Cathay International Holdings Limited

("Cathay" or the "Company")

Compulsory Acquisition Notice

London, 1 December 2020 - Cathay International Holdings Limited, an operator and investor in the growing healthcare sector in the People ' s Republic of China , announces that a compulsory acquisition notice dated 1 December 2020 (the "Notice") has been sent to all shareholders on behalf of Controlling Shareholders after market close of 1 December 2020.

Notice of Compulsory Acquisition

Pursuant to Section 103(1) of the Companies Act, the Controlling Shareholders, being the registered holders of not less than ninety-five percent of the Shares, hereby gives Notice to all Minority Shareholders that:

   (a)   the Controlling Shareholders intend to compulsorily acquire the Shares registered in Minority Shareholder's name for the Offer Price (being 1.7 pence in cash per Share) at the date of the Notice; 

(b) unless any Shareholder apply to the Supreme Court of Bermuda ("Court") under Section 103(2) of the Companies Act within one month of the Notice to appraise the value of the Shares, the Controlling Shareholders will be entitled and bound to acquire your Shares on or about 4 January 2021 and settlement will be made on or about 11 January 2021 (the "Completion Date"); and

(c) if, on the application of any Shareholder, the value of the Shares appraised by the Court is found to be higher or lower than the Offer Price, the Controlling Shareholders intend to cancel the Notice within one month of the order of the Court in accordance with Section 103(3)(b) of the Companies Act. If the Notice is cancelled by the Controlling Shareholders as a result of an application to the Court by any Shareholder, Shareholders whose Shares have not been acquired by the Controlling Shareholders will hold an investment which has no liquidity in any recognised market.

The same terms apply to all Shareholders. The Offer Price is the same as the price in the Tender Offer.

The Shares will be acquired at the Completion Date fully-paid, free from all liens, equities, mortgages, charges, encumbrances, rights of pre-emption and other third party rights and interests of any nature whatsoever and together with all rights, benefits and entitlements attached thereto.

The provisions of the Companies Act are complex and have strict deadlines. Shareholders should consult a law firm duly authorised by the Bermuda Bar Association to practice the law of Bermuda without delay if they wish to exercise their rights under Section 103(2) of the Companies Act.

Procedure for transfer and settlement

Subject to any Shareholder applying to the Court under Section 103(2) of the Companies Act within one month of the Notice and to the right of the Controlling Shareholders to cancel the Notice, the Controlling Shareholders will procure that Shares are transferred to and registered in the name of the Controlling Shareholders in the Register (as they agree) pursuant to Section 103 of the Companies Act and the Controlling Shareholders shall, if necessary, be entitled to execute an instrument of transfer on behalf of Shareholders as transferor of the Shares on or about the Completion Date.

The Receiving Agent will send remittances on or about the Completion Date for the aggregate Offer Price under this Notice to Shareholders or DI Holders, in the manner described below:

-- where remittance relates to Shares held by Shareholders in certificated form, cheques will be despatched by the Receiving Agent by first class post to the registered address of the Shareholder or, in the case of joint holders, the registered address of the first named Shareholder. Cash payments will be made in pounds sterling by cheque, drawn on a branch of a UK clearing bank; or

-- where remittance relates to Shares held by Shareholders in uncertificated form represented by Depositary Interests, payment will be made through CREST, by the Receiving Agent (on behalf of the Company) procuring the creation of an assured payment obligation in favour of the payment banks of DI Holders in accordance with the CREST assured payment arrangement.

Untraceable Shareholders

Remittances will not be sent to Shareholders or DI Holders who are untraceable. A Shareholder or DI Holder shall be deemed to be untraceable if (i) a Shareholder has no registered address in the Register; or (ii) the Notice has been sent to such Shareholder or DI Holder and has been returned undelivered.

Monies due to Shareholders or DI Holders who are untraceable and any monies which are returned to the Company or which are unclaimed will be held by the Company in a separate non interest bearing bank account for the benefit of Shareholders or DI Holders entitled thereto. Such Shareholders or DI Holders who wish to receive any monies from the Company in respect of the compulsory acquisition under the Notice within this period should contact the Company.

If a Shareholder wishes to voluntarily transfer Shares to the Controlling Shareholders and receive the Offer Price earlier than would be the case pursuant to the Notice please contact the Company Secretary by post to the following address: Cathay International Holdings Limited, Unit 1203-4, 12/F., Li Po Chun Chambers, 189 Des Voeux Road Central, Central Hong Kong for the attention of The Company Secretary; or by e-mail:
