Founder and TPG currently own ~ 54% and 11% of ShangPharma's ordinary shares, respectively. According to the proposal letter, the acquisition is intended to be financed through a combination of debt and equity capital, with definitive commitments for the required debt and equity funding expected to be in place, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, when the definitive agreements with respect to the acquisition and related transactions are signed. ShangPharma's Board of Directors has formed a special committee of independent directors consisting of three independent directors, Mr. Julian Ralph Worley, Mr. Yuk Lam Lo and Mr. Benson Tsang, to consider this proposal. The Independent Committee will retain a financial advisor and legal counsel to assist it in its work.
