Election of three nominees as Class II Directors (as such term is defined in the registrants articles of association), each to serve until the second succeeding annual general meeting of shareholders and his successor is duly elected or appointed, or until his earlier resignation or removal; and
Ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP as the registrants independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.

Mr. Shi Wang
Each of Mr. Charles Huang, Dr. Dave Qi, and Mr. Shi Wang received a plurality of the votes cast at the 2019 Annual Meeting and was elected as a Class II Director.
Proposal 2. The numbers of votes cast for and against ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP as the registrants independent auditors, and the number of abstentions, are as follows:
The appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP as the registrants independent auditors was not ratified by the shareholders of the registrant. The audit committee of the Board of Directors of the registrant is responsible for selecting and appointing the registrants independent auditors. The shareholders do not have the power under the registrants memorandum and articles of association or Cayman Islands law to appoint the registrants independent auditors. Accordingly, this shareholder vote is advisory only, and is not binding on the registrant or the audit committee.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
