The following constitutes Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) to the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by CYVN Investments RSC Ltd (“CYVN Investments”) on July 24, 2023, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on December 20, 2023, and Amendment No. 2 filed on December 27, 2023. This Amendment No. 3 amends and supplements the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D, as amended. Information given in response to each item shall be deemed incorporated by reference in all other items, as applicable.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 of this Schedule 13D is supplemented by the following:

On February 26, 2024, Forseven Limited (“Forseven”), an affiliate of CYVN Investments, entered into a technology license agreement (the “Technology License Agreement”) with NIO Technology (Anhui) Co., Ltd. (“NIO”), a subsidiary of the Issuer. Pursuant to the Technology License Agreement, NIO will grant a non-exclusive and non-transferrable worldwide license to Forseven to use certain of NIO’s existing and future technical information, technical solutions, software and intellectual property rights related to or subsisting in NIO’s smart electric vehicle platforms (collectively, the “Licensed Technologies”) for (i) the research and development, manufacture, sale, import and export of vehicle models sold or marketed under Forseven brand(s) meeting pre-agreed manufacturer’s suggested retail price (“MSRP”) thresholds (excluding tax) under the Technology License Agreement  (collectively, the “Licensed Products”), and (ii) the provision or procurement of certain after-sales services for the Licensed Products to its users.

Under the Technology License Agreement, Forseven will pay NIO technology license fees comprising a non-refundable, fixed upfront license fee plus royalties determined based on the future sales of Licensed Products by Forseven. Unless terminated in accordance with provisions provided in the Technology License Agreement, the Technology License Agreement will remain valid until the end of production of the Licensed Products or the expiration of Forseven’s obligation to provide after-sales services to its users. Either party may terminate the Technology License Agreement under certain conditions.  In addition, NIO may
terminate the Technology License Agreement under certain conditions, including if a company that owns one or more automotive brands and sells vehicles under such brand(s) to the market obtains control of Forseven.

Further, pursuant to the share subscription agreement, dated December 18, 2023, by and between the Issuer and  CYVN Investments, CYVN Investments will be entitled to nominate two directors to the Issuer’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) (each of such persons, a “Purchaser Designee”, and collectively the “Purchaser Designees”).  Effective on February 7, 2024, Eddy Georges Skaf and Nicholas Paul Collins, both Purchaser Designees, were appointed as new directors on the Board.  Mr. Skaf is a director of CYVN Investments, the Chief Investment Officer of CYVN Holdings L.L.C., an affiliate of CYVN Investments, and a director of Foreight Limited and Forseven, both affiliates of CYVN Investments.  Mr. Collins is the Chief Executive Officer of Forseven.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

(a) and (b) Items 7 through 11 and 13 of the cover page of this Schedule 13D are incorporated herein by reference. Such information is based upon on 1,932,063,749 Class A Ordinary Shares outstanding as of December 31, 2023 (based on information provided by the Issuer).  Shares beneficially owned represent approximately 20.1% of the total Ordinary Shares outstanding, based upon an aggregate of 2,080,563,749 Ordinary Shares issued and outstanding, which is the sum of (i) 1,932,063,749 Class A Ordinary Shares plus (ii) 148,500,000 Class C Ordinary Shares (based on information provided by the Issuer).

(c) There have been no transactions by CYVN Investments or the Scheduled Persons in the securities of the Issuer during the past sixty days.

(d) Except as set forth in this Schedule 13D, as amended, no other person is known to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Class A Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by CYVN Investments.

(e) Not applicable.

After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, I certify that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
