BEIJING, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NaaS Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: NAAS) (the "Company"), one of the largest and fastest-growing electric vehicle charging service providers in China, today announced that its board of directors has approved and adopted a new share incentive plan of the Company (the "New 2022 Share Incentive Plan"). The maximum number of Class A ordinary shares of the Company available to be issued under the New 2022 Share Incentive Plan is initially 249,770,760 and will be increased on the first day of each fiscal year from January 1, 2023 by an amount equal to 1% of the total number of shares issued and outstanding on the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year, unless otherwise decided by the board of directors of the Company.
The New 2022 Share Incentive Plan took effect on September 29, 2022 and replaces the 2022 Share Incentive Plan of Dada Auto Inc.

The New 2022 Share Incentive Plan has a larger number of shares available to be issued than the Original Plan, and is substantially similar to the Original Plan in other respects.
Outstanding awards under the Original Plan remain valid. These awards are governed by, and counted towards the total number of shares available under, the New 2022 Share Incentive Plan.
