Termination and Proposed Sale of the China Business

On January 20, 2023, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Metalpha Technology Holding Limited, an exempt company incorporated and existing under the laws of the Cayman Islands (formerly known as Dragon Victory International Limited, the “Company”) , unanimously approved the Company’s plan to cease and desist all business operations in Mainland China (collectively, the “Mainland China Business”) conducted by the Company through its subsidiaries and variable-interest entities, and to dispose of the Mainland China business by selling it to one or more third parties. The Board noted that the Mainland China business has been and continues to be conducted with tremendous difficulty and uncertainty in a challenging economic environment. Accordingly, the Board determined that the discontinuation and proposed sale of the Mainland China business would be in the best commercial interests of the Company and would allow management to focus on growing the Company’s digital asset-related business outside of China .
