iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited Announces the Closing of US$10 Million Convertible Note and the Issuance of US$20 Million Warrants
Additional Convertible Notes Offering on Strong Demand and Warrants Issuance

HONG KONGDec. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited (“iClick” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ICLK), an independent online marketing and enterprise data solutions provider in China, today announced the closing of the sale at par of US$10 million in aggregate principal amount of a three-year convertible note due December 16, 2022 (“Note”) to Tech Famous Limited, a non-U.S. person, in an offshore transaction exempt from registration with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under Regulation S of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Regulations S”).

This new Note was issued in addition to a US$20 million Convertible Noted issued on November 11, 2019 to Marine Central Limited, backed by Mr. Yam, who is also the majority shareholder of Forbes Media LLC, and shares substantially the same terms as this previous note.

“The additional issuance of the Note was primarily due to strong demand from a group of Asian high-net-wealth investors after the previous note’s announcement,” said Sammy Hsieh, co-founder and CEO of iClick. “We will leverage the additional financing to further upgrade our Enterprise and Marketing Cloud Platform and actively evaluate other new business and investment opportunities.”

In connection with the issuance of the Note and the previously announced issuance of a three-year convertible note to Marine Central Limited (the “Transactions”), the Company will issue certain warrants (“Warrants”) to purchase up to 4,651,162 ADSs to Eaglestride Limited, the financial adviser in the Transactions, as compensation for its services, at an exercise price of US$4.30 per ADS, subject to adjustments to be specified in the Warrants, in an offshore transaction exempt from registration with the SEC in reliance on Regulation S. The Warrants are exercisable on or after December 16, 2020, and will expire on December 16, 2022.

The Note will bear interest at a rate of 5.0% per annum and will be convertible at the option of the holder into the Company’s American depositary shares (“ADSs”), each representing one-half of an ordinary share of the Company. The conversion will be eligible following a 12-month lockup period, with the conversion price set at the lower of (i) a fixed price of US$4.30 or (ii) the VWAP (volume weighted average price) of the ADSs over a certain period plus a premium equal to 10% of this VWAP, each subject to adjustments upon the occurrence of certain events. A holder may require the Company to redeem its Note upon a change of control of the Company. The Note is also callable at the option of the Company upon payment of the applicable redemption price. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Note primarily for continued investment in the Company’s enterprise solutions and other new businesses.

The Note, the Warrants, the ADSs deliverable upon conversion of the Note or the Warrants and the ordinary shares represented thereby, have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale. They may not be transferred or resold absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration as permitted under the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any securities, nor shall there be a sale of the securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
