EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D ("Amendment No. 3") is being jointly filed by Dang Yu (George) Pan and Advance Pride International Limited (collectively, the “Reporting Persons”) as an amendment to that certain Schedule 13D filed by Dang Yu (George) Pan with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on November 13, 2007, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on February 14, 2012 and Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on February 14, 2018 (collectively, the "Schedule 13D"). Advance Pride International Limited, a British Virgin Islands company 100% owned by Dang Yu (George) Pan (“Advance Pride”), shared beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock of the Issuer at the time of the filing of the original Schedule 13D and all amendments thereto and currently has shared beneficial ownership with Dang Yu (George) Pan of 269,959 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer. This fact of Advance Pride’s shared beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock of the Issuer was inadvertently and unintentionally omitted from such filings.

 

Item 1. Security and Issuer.

 

This Schedule 13D relates to the common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Common Stock"), of Highpower International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Issuer"). The principal executive office of the Issuer is Building A1, 68 Xinxia Street, Pinghu, Longgang, Shenzhen Guangdong F4 518111, People’s Republic of China.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background.

 

(a) — (c) and (f) This Schedule 13D is filed jointly by the Reporting Persons. Mr. Dang Yu (George) Pan is an executive officer and director of the Issuer whose principal executive office is located at Building A1, 68 Xinxia Street, Pinghu, Longgang, Shenzhen Guangdong F4 518111, People’s Republic of China. Mr. Pan is a citizen of the People’s Republic of China. The business address of Mr. Pan is Building A1, 68 Xinxia Street, Pinghu, Longgang, Shenzhen Guangdong F4 518111, People’s Republic of China.

 

Advance Pride is a British Virgin Islands company 100% owned by Mr. Pan. Mr. Pan is the sole director of Advance Pride. The principal business of Advance Pride is making investments in public and private companies. The address of the principal office of Advance Pride is Vistra Corporate Services Centre, Wickhams Cay II, Road Town, Tortola, VG1110, British Virgin Islands.

 

(d) — (e) During the five years preceding the date of this filing, neither of the Reporting Persons has been (i) convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The information set forth in or incorporated by reference in Item 4 of this Amendment No. 3 is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 3.

 

No shares of Common Stock were purchased by the Reporting Persons in connection with the transaction giving rise to the filing of this Amendment No. 3 and thus no funds were used by the Reporting Persons for such purpose.

 

Mr. Dang Yu (George) Pan anticipates that based on the price per share of Common Stock set forth in the Proposal Letter (as described in Item 4 below), approximately US$60.8 million will be expended in acquiring the shares of the Issuer not currently owned by Mr. Pan.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

The shares of Common Stock currently beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons were originally acquired for investment purposes.

 

 

CUSIP No. 43113X10113DPage 5 of 7

 

 

On June 2, 2018, Mr. Dang Yu (George) Pan submitted a preliminary non-binding proposal letter (the “Proposal Letter”) to the Issuer’s board of directors, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 7.02. In the Proposal Letter, Mr. Pan proposed to acquire (the “Acquisition”), through an acquisition vehicle to be formed by Mr. Pan, all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock that are not already directly or indirectly beneficially owned by Mr. Pan for cash consideration equal to US$4.80 per share of Common Stock to be funded by a combination of debt and equity capital arranged by Mr. Pan. It is anticipated Mr. Pan will roll over his equity interests in the Issuer to such acquisition vehicle. The Proposal Letter stated that Mr. Pan expects commitments for the debt financing, subject to terms and conditions set forth therein, to be in place when the definitive agreements for the Acquisition are executed. Mr. Pan also stated in the Proposal Letter that he is only interested in pursuing the Acquisition and does not intend to sell his stake in the Issuer to a third party. Mr. Pan expects to complete due diligence of the Issuer in parallel with discussions of the definitive agreements with respect to the Acquisition. The Proposal Letter constitutes only a preliminary indication of Mr. Pan’s interest, and does not constitute any binding commitment with respect to the Acquisition.

 

If the Acquisition is completed, the Issuer’s Common Stock would become eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Act and would be delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (Nasdaq Global Market).

 

The description of the Proposal Letter set forth above in this Item 4 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Proposal Letter which has been filed as Exhibit 7.02 and is incorporated herein by this reference.

 

None of the Issuer or Mr. Pan is obligated to complete the transactions described herein, and a binding commitment with respect to the Acquisition will result only from the execution of definitive documents, and then will be on the terms provided in such documentation.

 

Except as indicated above, the Reporting Persons currently do not have any plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any matters listed in Items 4(a)-(j) of Schedule 13D. Consummation of the Acquisition could result in one or more of the actions specified in Items 4(a)-(j) of Schedule 13D, including the acquisition or disposition of securities of the Issuer, a merger or other extraordinary transaction involving the Issuer, a change to the board of directors of the Issuer to consist solely of persons to be designated by the acquisition vehicle to be formed by Mr. Pan, and a change in the Issuer’s certificate of incorporation to reflect that the Issuer would become a privately held company. In addition, Mr. Pan reserves his right to change his plans and intentions in connection with any of the actions discussed in this item 4, including, among others, the purchase price and the financing arrangements for the Acquisition. Any action taken by Mr. Pan may be effected at any time and from time to time, subject to any applicable limitations imposed by any applicable laws. No assurance can be given that any proposal, any definitive agreement or any transaction relating to the Acquisition will be entered into or be consummated.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Company.

 

Items 5(a), (b) and (c) are amended and restated as follows.

 

The information contained on each of the cover pages of this Schedule 13D and the information set forth or incorporated in Items 2, 3, 4, and 6 are hereby incorporated herein by reference.

 

(a) Mr. Dang Yu (George) Pan beneficially owns an aggregate of 3,092,773 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 19.9% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock and including 269,959 shares directly held by Advance Pride. Advance Pride, a British Virgin Islands company, is 100% owned by Mr. Pan, and Mr. Pan is the sole director of Advance Pride. Pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Act and the rules promulgated thereunder, Mr. Pan may be deemed to beneficially own all of the shares held by Advance Pride in the Issuer.

 

As of the date hereof, Advance Pride directly holds 269,959 shares of Common Stock, which represent approximately 1.7% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

The above disclosure of percentage information was calculated based on 15,559,658 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on May 11, 2018, as reported in the Issuer’s Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2018.
