This Amendment No. 1 is being filed jointly by the Reporting Persons and amends the Schedule 13G initially filed by the Reporting Persons with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 5, 2020 (the “Schedule 13G”).

 

Except as set forth below, all Items of the Schedule 13G remain unchanged. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13G.

 

Item 2.

 

(e) CUSIP Number

 

There is no CUSIP number assigned to the Ordinary Shares. CUSIP number 00973E409 has been assigned to the ADSs.

 

Item 4. Ownership.

 

(a) and (b):

 

As of the close of business on December 31, 2020, each of the Reporting Persons may have been deemed to have beneficial ownership of 19,132,860 Ordinary Shares, which consisted of (i) 12,857,145 Ordinary Shares issuable upon an exercise of a warrant held by Intracoastal (“Intracoastal Warrant 1”) and (ii) 6,275,715 Ordinary Shares issuable upon an exercise of a second warrant held by Intracoastal (“Intracoastal Warrant 2”), and all such Ordinary Shares represented beneficial ownership of approximately 5.2% of the Ordinary Shares, based on (1) 349,169,545 Ordinary Shares outstanding as of December 30, 2020 as reported by the Issuer, plus (2) 12,857,145 Ordinary Shares issuable upon an exercise of Intracoastal Warrant 1 and (3) 6,275,715 Ordinary Shares issuable upon an exercise of Intracoastal Warrant 2. The foregoing excludes 2,750,010 Ordinary Shares issuable upon an exercise of a third warrant held by Intracoastal (“Intracoastal Warrant 3”) because Intracoastal Warrant 3 contains a blocker provision under which the holder thereof does not have the right to exercise Intracoastal Warrant 3 to the extent (but only to the extent) that such exercise would result in beneficial ownership by the holder thereof, together with the holder’s affiliates, and any other persons acting as a group together with the holder or any of the holder’s affiliates, of more than 4.99% of the Ordinary Shares. Without such blocker provision, each of the Reporting Persons may have been deemed to have beneficial ownership of 21,882,870 Ordinary Shares.

 

(c) Number of shares as to which each Reporting Person has:

 

(1) Sole power to vote or to direct the vote:         0    .

 

(2) Shared power to vote or to direct the vote:        19,132,860     .

 

(3) Sole power to dispose or to direct the disposition of         0    .

 

(4) Shared power to dispose or to direct the disposition of      19,132,860    .
