This is an initial public offering of American depositary shares, or ADSs, of iQIYI, Inc.
We are offering 125,000,000 ADSs. Each ADS represents 7 of our Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.00001 per share.
Prior to this offering, there has been no public market for our ADSs or shares. Our ADSs have been approved for listing on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol IQ.
Immediately following the completion of this offering, our outstanding share capital will consist of Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares. Baidu, Inc., our controlling shareholder, will beneficially own all of our issued Class B ordinary shares and will be able to exercise 93.3% of the total voting power of our issued and outstanding share capital immediately following the completing of this offering, assuming the underwriters do not exercise their option to purchase additional ADSs. Holders of Class A ordinary shares and Class B ordinary shares have the same rights except for voting and conversion rights. Each class A ordinary share is entitled to one vote, and each Class B ordinary share is entitled to ten votes and is convertible into one Class A ordinary share. Class A ordinary shares are not convertible into Class B ordinary shares under any circumstances.
