(1)The shares being registered hereby may be represented by the Registrant’s American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) (each ADS representing four ordinary shares). The Registrant’s ADSs issuable upon deposit of the ordinary shares registered hereby have been registered under a separate registration statement on Form F-6 (Registration No. 333-129305).

 

(2)Any ordinary shares covered by an award granted under the Vimicro International Corporation 2005 Share Incentive Plan, as amended and restated on December 14, 2006, March 27, 2008, December 11, 2008 and October 22, 2014 (the “Plan”) (or portion of an award), which is forfeited, canceled or expired (whether voluntarily or involuntarily) shall be deemed not to have been issued for purposes of determining the maximum aggregate number of ordinary shares which may be issued under the Plan. Ordinary shares that actually have been issued under the Plan pursuant to an award shall not be returned to the Plan and shall not become available for future issuance under the Plan, except that if unvested ordinary shares are forfeited or repurchased by the Company at their original issue price, such ordinary shares shall become available for future grant under the Plan.

 

(3)Pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), this Registration Statement also relates to an indeterminate number of additional shares which may be offered and issued to prevent dilution from stock splits, stock dividends or similar transactions as provided in the Plan.

 

(4)These shares are issuable upon exercise of outstanding options granted under the Plan, and the proposed maximum offering price per share represents the exercise price of these options. Pursuant to Rule 457(h)(1), the maximum aggregate offering price is calculated as the product of 3,025,801 shares issued and issuable upon exercise of these options multiplied by the weighted average exercise price of approximately $1.13 per share, which equal to an aggregate offering price of $3,419,155.13.

 

(5)These shares are reserved for future award grants under the Plan, and the proposed maximum offering price per share is estimated solely for purposes of calculating the registration fee under Rule 457(h) and 457(c) under the Securities Act, based on the average of the high and low prices for the Registrant’s ADSs, as reported on the Nasdaq Global Market on April 23, 2015.
