Meten Holding Group Ltd., a company formed under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Company”), operates its English language training business in China through contractual arrangements with the variable interest entities (the “VIEs”, each a “VIE”), Shenzhen Meten International Education Co., Ltd. (“Shenzhen Meten”), and Shenzhen Likeshuo Education Co., Ltd. (“Shenzhen Likeshuo”). Through the VIE structure, the Company has been able to consolidate the financial results of Shenzhen Meten and Shenzhen Likeshuo and their subsidiaries into the consolidated financial statements of the Company under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The contractual arrangements related to Shenzhen Meten were entered into by and among Zhuhai Meten, a wholly foreign owned enterprise of the Company (“Zhuhai Meten”), the shareholders of Shenzhen Meten, Shenzhen Meten and its affiliated entities, and the contractual arrangements related to Shenzhen Likeshuo were entered into by and among Zhuhai Likeshuo, a wholly foreign owned enterprise of the Company (“Zhuhai Likeshuo”, together with Zhuhai Meten, the “WFOEs”), the shareholders of Shenzhen Likeshuo, Shenzhen Likeshuo and its affiliated entities.
Since 2021, the Company has taken a series of steps to transform itself into a blockchain technology company and it has recently developed a plan to unwind its VIE structure. Based on the terms of the contractual arrangements, Zhuhai Meten or Zhuhai Likeshuo may unilaterally terminate their respective contractual arrangements with a 30-day notice in advance. Both Zhuhai Meten and Zhuhai Likeshuo provided such notices on October 20, 2022, and the Company expects the VIE structure to be effectively unwound in late November after the 30-day period ends. After the structure has been unwound, the financial results of the VIEs and their subsidiaries will no longer be consolidated into the Company’s financial statements.
