(EDS) ("Exceed" or the "Company"), one of the leading domestic sportswear brands in China, today announced that it intends to adjourn its extraordinary general meeting of shareholders to be held on April 16, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. (Hong Kong time), at United Conference Centre, 10/F, United Centre, 95 Queensway, Hong Kong, to consider and vote on the proposal to adopt the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement"), dated December 2, 2013, by and among the Company, Pan Long Company Limited ("Parent"), an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands and wholly owned by Mr. Shuipan Lin ("Mr. Lin"), the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Pan Long Investment Holdings Limited ("Merger Sub"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. The Company intends to hold the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders on April 16, 2014, but immediately adjourn the meeting without conducting any business. Other than the adjournment of the meeting, no vote will be taken on April 16, 2014 for any resolution set forth in the notice of the extraordinary general meeting dated March 21, 2014.
The board of directors of the Company has determined that it is in the best interests of its shareholders to adjourn the extraordinary general meeting because Mr. Lin has advised the Company that he requires additional time to obtain his contemplated financing for the pending transaction.
The Company intends to resume the adjourned extraordinary general meeting of shareholders as soon as practicable following confirmation from Mr. Lin that the financing is on deposit in an account outside of the People's Republic of China and available at the closing of the transaction, and Mr. Lin has further advised the Company that it expects this will not be later than May 31, 2014. The resolutions set out in the notice of the extraordinary general meeting dated March 21, 2014 will be considered and voted on at such time as the adjourned extraordinary general meeting is resumed. The Company will give notice to shareholders of the date on which the adjourned extraordinary general meeting will be resumed as soon as a date is selected, and in any event not less than seven calendar days prior to such resumed meeting as required under the laws of the British Virgin Islands.
