Board of Directors (the “Board”)

Tarena International, Inc. (the “Company”)

6/F, No. 1 Andingmenwai Street, Litchi Tower

Chaoyang District, Beijing 100011

People’s Republic of China

 

Dear Members of the Board of Directors:

 

I, Shaoyun Han, founder and Chairman of the Board of the Company, am pleased to submit this preliminary non-binding proposal (the “Proposal”) to acquire all of the outstanding Class A ordinary shares (the “Shares”) of the Company that are not already held by me and my affiliates in a going private transaction (the “Acquisition”). My affiliates and I beneficially own approximately 31.2% of all the issued and outstanding shares (including Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary Shares) of the Company, which represent approximately 68.5% of the aggregate voting power of the Company, based on the Company’s latest outstanding number of shares as publicly disclosed.

 

I believe that my proposed purchase price of US$4.00 per American depositary shares (“ADS”, each representing one (1) Share), or US$4.00 per Share, in cash, will provide a very attractive opportunity to the Company’s shareholders. This price represents a premium of approximately 27.4% to the Company’s closing price on December 7, 2020, a premium of approximately 71.5% to the average closing price of the Company during the last 30 trading days, and a premium of approximately 95.6% to the average closing price of the Company during the last 60 trading days.

 

The terms and conditions upon which I am prepared to pursue the Acquisition are set forth below. I am confident that I can consummate the Acquisition as outlined in this letter.

 

1.       Buyer. I intend to form an acquisition vehicle for the purpose of implementing the Acquisition. In considering my Proposal, you should be aware that I am interested only in acquiring the outstanding Shares of the Company that are not already held by me and my affiliates, and that I do not intend to sell my Shares in the Company to any third party.

 

2.       Purchase Price. My proposed consideration payable for the Acquisition is US$4.00 per ADS, or US$4.00 per Share, in cash.

 

3.       Funding. I intend to finance the Acquisition with a combination of debt and equity capital. Equity financing is expected to be provided in the form of rollover equity in the Company and cash contributions from me and third party sponsors. I expect definitive commitments for the required financing, subject to terms and conditions set forth therein, to be in place when the Definitive Agreements (as defined below) are signed with the Company.

 

4.       Process; Due Diligence. I believe that the Acquisition will provide superior value to the Company’s shareholders. I recognize that the Company’s Board will evaluate the Acquisition fairly and independently before it can make its determination to endorse it. Parties providing financing will require a timely opportunity to conduct customary due diligence on the Company. I would like to ask the Board to accommodate such due diligence request and approve the provision of confidential information relating to the Company and its business to possible sources of equity and debt financing subject to customary confidentiality agreement.

 

 

 

 

5.       Definitive Agreements. I am prepared to negotiate and finalize mutually satisfactory definitive agreements with respect to the Acquisition (the “Definitive Agreements”) expeditiously. This Proposal is subject to the execution of the Definitive Agreements. The Definitive Agreements will provide for representations, warranties, covenants and conditions which are typical, customary and appropriate for transactions of this type.

 

6.       Confidentiality. I will, as required by law, promptly file an amendment to my Schedule 13D to disclose this Proposal. I am sure you will agree with me that it is in all of our interests to ensure that our discussions relating to the Acquisition proceed in a confidential manner, unless otherwise required by law, until we have executed the Definitive Agreements or terminated our discussions.

 

7.       No Binding Commitment. This letter constitutes only a preliminary indication of my interest, and does not constitute any binding commitment with respect to the Acquisition. A binding commitment will result only from the execution of Definitive Agreements, and then will be on terms and conditions provided in such documentation.

 

In closing, I would like to express my commitment to working together to bring this Acquisition to a successful and timely conclusion. Should you have any questions regarding this Proposal, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

  

  Sincerely,
