A portion of the equity financing would be provided from Mr. Zhang's existing shareholdings in the Company and Mr. Zhang expects the remainder of the financing to be provided by third party debt and equity financing sources and certain shareholders of the Company. The Company's Board of Directors will form a special committee which will consist of all independent directors (the "Special Committee") to evaluate the Transaction.
