INTRODUCTION

This Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement, together with the exhibits hereto (this “Transaction Statement”), is being filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), by: (i) Telenav, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the issuer of the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) that are subject to the Rule 13e-3 transaction; (ii) V99, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”); (iii) Telenav99, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub” and, together with Parent, the “Purchaser Parties”); (iv) H.P. Jin (“Dr. Jin”); (v) Digital Mobile Venture Limited, a British Virgin Islands company (“Digital”); (vi) Samuel Chen; (vii) Fiona Chang; (viii) Yi-Ting Chen; (ix) Yi-Chun Chen; and (x) Changbin Wang (together with the Purchaser Parties, Dr. Jin, Digital, Samuel Chen, Fiona Chang, Yi-Ting Chen and Yi-Chun Chen, the “Purchaser Group”). Collectively, the persons filing this Transaction Statement are referred to as the “Filing Persons.”

On November 2, 2020, the Company, Parent and Merger Sub entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended on December 17, 2020 or thereafter amended or supplemented, the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Merger Sub shall merge with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). Concurrently with the filing of this Transaction Statement, the Company is filing with the SEC a preliminary proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) under Regulation 14A of the Exchange Act, relating to a special meeting of the stockholders of the Company at which the holders of the Common Stock will be asked to consider and vote on a proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement. The adoption of the Merger Agreement by the affirmative vote of the holders of (i) at least a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock and (ii) at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent of the outstanding shares of Common Stock not beneficially owned by any member of the Purchaser Group (and any affiliate of the foregoing Purchaser Group or any trust in which a member of the Purchaser Group is a beneficiary). A copy of the Proxy Statement is attached hereto as Exhibit (a)(2)(i) and a copy of the Merger Agreement is attached as Annex A to the Proxy Statement.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of the Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares held by any of the Company’s stockholders who are entitled to and properly exercise appraisal rights under Delaware law (“dissenting shares”)) will be converted into the right to receive $4.80 in cash, without interest (the “Merger Consideration”), less any applicable withholding taxes, whereupon all such shares will be automatically canceled and will cease to exist, and the holders of such shares will cease to have any rights with respect thereto other than the right to receive the Merger Consideration.

At the Effective Time, each stock option of the Company that is outstanding and unexercised as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, will immediately vest and be cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the product of (i) the excess, if any, of the Merger Consideration over the per share exercise price of such stock option, and (ii) the total number of shares of Common Stock subject to such stock option as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, less any taxes required to be withheld (provided, however, that any stock option for which its per share exercise price is greater than the Merger Consideration will be cancelled and terminated at the Effective Time for no consideration).

The Company’s restricted stock unit awards covering shares of Common Stock (“RSUs”) that are outstanding and vested as of immediately prior to the Effective Time but for which the shares of Common Stock issuable with respect thereto have not yet been delivered prior to the Effective Time will be cancelled and converted into the right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the Merger Consideration for each share of Common Stock otherwise deliverable in settlement of such vested RSUs, less any taxes required to be withheld.

Each RSU that is unvested, outstanding and unsettled immediately prior to the Effective Time will be cancelled and converted into the unfunded, unsecured right to receive an amount in cash, without interest, equal to the Merger Consideration (less any taxes required to be withheld), subject to the holder’s satisfaction of any vesting based on continued service (including any accelerated vesting in connection with a termination of service) that applied to the corresponding RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time.

As of December 5, 2020, the members of the Purchaser Group beneficially owned 16,629,370 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 34.7% of the Company’s total issued and outstanding Common Stock (including 103,091 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of options exercisable within 60 days of December 5, 2020).


The board of directors of the Company formed a special committee comprised entirely of independent and disinterested directors, consisting of Douglas Miller, Wes Cummins and Randy Ortiz (the “Special Committee”) to consider and negotiate the terms and conditions of the Merger and to recommend to the board of directors whether to pursue the Merger and, if so, on what terms and conditions.

The cross-references below are being supplied pursuant to General Instruction G to Schedule 13E-3 and show the location in the Proxy Statement of the information required to be included in response to the items of Schedule 13E-3. Pursuant to General Instruction F to Schedule 13E- 3, the information contained in the Proxy Statement, including all annexes thereto, is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety, and the responses to each item in this Transaction Statement are qualified in their entirety by the information contained in the Proxy Statement and the annexes thereto. As of the date hereof, the Proxy Statement is in preliminary form and is subject to completion or amendment. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Transaction Statement shall have the meanings given to them in the Proxy Statement.

While each of the Filing Persons acknowledges that the Merger is a going private transaction for purposes of Rule 13E-3 under the Exchange Act, the filing of this Transaction Statement shall not be construed as an admission by any Filing Person, or by any affiliate of a Filing Person, that the Company is “controlled” by any other Filing Person.

Commitment Letter Amendment

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Reference is hereby made to that certain Commitment Letter, dated November 2, 2020 (together with all annexes and exhibits thereto, the “Commitment Letter”), by and among Samuel T. Chen, H.P. Jin, Digital Mobile Venture Limited (collectively, the “Commitment Parties”) and V99, Inc. (“Parent”) which was entered into in connection with that certain Merger Agreement, dated November 2, 2020, by and among Parent, Telenav99, Inc. and Telenav, Inc. (as the same has been amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time in a manner not materially adverse to the Commitment Parties, the “Merger Agreement”). All capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings given to them in the Commitment Letter, as amended by this Amendment.

Parent has notified the Commitment Parties of its desire to increase the Commitment Amount in order to pay the Merger Consideration. Concurrently herewith, the Merger Agreement is being amended by that certain Amendment No. 1, dated December 16, 2020, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Merger Agreement Amendment” and the Merger Agreement, as amended by the Merger Agreement Amendment, the “Amended Merger Agreement”), to, among other things, increase the amount of the Merger Consideration to be paid by Parent pursuant to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Amended Merger Agreement. In connection therewith, the undersigned hereby agree to amend the Commitment Letter as set forth below in this letter agreement (this “Amendment” and the Commitment Letter, as amended by this Amendment, the “Amended Commitment Letter”):

 

  1.

All capitalized terms used in the Commitment Letter but not defined therein shall henceforth have the meanings set forth in the Amended Merger Agreement.

 

  2.

All references in the Commitment Letter to (i) the Merger Agreement shall be deemed to be references to the Amended Merger Agreement and (ii) the Commitment Letter shall be deemed to be references to the Amended Commitment Letter.

 

  3.

Section 2 of the Commitment Letter is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:


“2. In order to finance the Merger Transactions, the Commitment Parties hereby commit, jointly and severally, to provide a senior, unsecured a term loan facility (the “Credit Facilities”), in an aggregate principal amount equal to either (a) the sum of (i) the Merger Consideration (which is expected to not exceed $257,362,867), (ii) all fees and expenses associated with the Transactions incurred by Parent, MergerCo or any of their respective Affiliates and required to be paid on the Closing Date by such party, and (iii) all amounts necessary to repay or prepay indebtedness required under the Merger Agreement to be repaid or prepaid on the Closing Date (such sum, the “Commitment Amount”), or (b) $3,500,000, in the event the Parent Termination Fee is payable to Borrower under the Merger Agreement in accordance with a valid termination thereof (the “Termination Amount”), on the terms of the Term Sheet and subject solely to the satisfaction of the Exclusive Funding Conditions.”

 

  4.

The parties hereby agree and acknowledge that the increased amount of the Merger Consideration and the corresponding increase in the Commitment Amount as a result of this Amendment is not materially adverse to the Commitment Parties for purposes of the Commitment Letter.

 

  5.

The Commitment Parties hereby confirm their commitment to, jointly and severally, provide the Commitment Amount, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Amended Commitment Letter.

 

  6.

Each of the Commitment Parties hereby severally represents and warrants that (i) it has the financial capacity to fulfill its commitment under the Amended Commitment Letter and that all funds necessary for the Commitment Party to fulfill its commitment under the Amended Commitment Letter shall be available to the Commitment Party for so long as the Amended Commitment Letter shall remain in effect; (ii) it has the requisite power and authority to enter into and deliver the this Amendment and to perform its obligations hereunder and under the Amended Commitment Letter; (iii) the execution, delivery and performance of the Amended Commitment Letter by such Commitment Party has been duly and validly authorized and approved by all necessary organizational action by it; (iv) this Amendment has been duly and validly executed and delivered by such Commitment Party and constitutes the valid and binding agreement of the Commitment Party, enforceable against such Commitment Party in accordance with its terms except to the extent that enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium or other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors’ rights and subject to general principles of equity; and (v) all consents, approvals, authorizations, permits of, filings with and notifications to, any governmental authority necessary for the due execution, delivery and performance of this Amendment by such Commitment Party have been obtained or made, and no other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental authority or regulatory body is required in connection with the execution, delivery or performance of this Amendment.

 

  7.

Except as expressly modified or amended pursuant hereto, no other changes or modifications to the Commitment Letter are intended or implied and in all other respects the Commitment Letter is hereby ratified, restated and confirmed by all parties hereto as of the date hereof.
