Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.


The information disclosed in Item 5.07 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.03 to the extent required herein.


Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders


On August 9, 2023, at the Extraordinary General Meeting of HH&L Acquisition Co. (the “Company”) held on May 9, 2023 (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”), holders of 14,784,962 of the Company’s ordinary shares, which represents approximately 89.17% of the ordinary shares outstanding and entitled to vote as of the record date of August 1, 2023, were represented in person or by proxy.


At the Extraordinary General Meeting, the shareholders approved (1) a special resolution to amend Articles 51.7 and 51.8 of the Company’s second amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, as amended by a special resolution of the Company’s shareholders on February 7, 2023 and May 9, 2023 (the “Second MAA”) to extend the date (the “Termination Date”) by which the Company must (i) consummate a business combination, or (ii) cease its operations except for the purpose of winding up if it fails to complete such business combination and redeem or repurchase 100% of the Company’s the issued and outstanding public shares, from August 9, 2023, without the need for any further approval of the Company’s shareholders, by resolutions of the Board of the Company at least three days prior to the applicable Extended Date, up to six times, each by an additional month, for an aggregate of six additional months, until February 9, 2024, without requiring the Company make any deposit into the Trust Account (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”). A copy of the amendment to our Second MAA is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.


1. The Extension Amendment Proposal. The Extension Amendment Proposal was approved. The final voting tabulation for this proposal was as follows:


13,824,484  960,478  0


In connection with the vote to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal, the holders of 2,025,832 Class A ordinary shares elected to redeem their shares, leaving 4,205,185 Class A ordinary shares remain outstanding. The Company expects that the redemption price will be approximately $10.55 per share. The Company intends to complete the redemption of Class A ordinary shares as soon as possible after the Extraordinary General Meeting.





The proposal to adjourn the Extraordinary General Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies in the event that there were insufficient votes to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal or if the Company determines that additional time is necessary to effectuate the Extension, was not presented at the Extraordinary General Meeting, as the Extension Amendment Proposal received a sufficient number of votes required for approval.
