October 17, 2019 - TKK Symphony Acquisition Corporation (Nasdaq: TKKS) (the “Company”) announced that it has today commenced a tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to 25,000,000 of its ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, at a purchase price of $10.26 per Class A common share. The ordinary shares are currently listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “TKKS.”  On October 16, 2019, the closing price of the ordinary was $10.17 per share.  The Tender Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on November 15, 2019 unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the “Expiration Date”).


Only ordinary shares validly tendered, and not properly withdrawn, will be purchased by the Company pursuant to the Tender Offer. The Company’s obligation to purchase ordinary shares pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. Ordinary shares tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer but not purchased by the Company in the Tender Offer will be returned at the Company’s expense promptly following the expiration of the Tender Offer.


The Tender Offer is being made in connection with the Company’s previously announced merger with Glory Star New Media Group Limited, a Cayman Islands company (the “Merger”). The Tender Offer is being made pursuant to the Company’s organizational documents, which require that in connection with the Merger, the Company provides its shareholders with the opportunity to tender their ordinary shares for a pro rata portion of the Company’s trust account (the “Trust Account”). The Company intends to fund the purchase of ordinary shares in the Tender Offer with cash available to the Company from the Trust Account.


TKK Symphony Sponsor 1 (the Company’s Sponsor) and holders of the Company’s founder shares, including members of its management team, have agreed with the Company to waive the rights to tender any ordinary shares they acquired in or after the IPO in connection with the Tender Offer and the Merger.


The Board of Directors of the Company recommends that you do not accept the Tender Offer with respect to your ordinary shares. You are encouraged to review the Offer to Purchase contained in the Company’s tender offer statement on Schedule TO, which will be or has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and which is being distributed to shareholders.
