In the development process of Li Auto, Wang Xing is undoubtedly one of the key figures. As early as 2022, Wang Xing led a USD 530 million Series C financing for Li Auto as an angel investor, with a contribution of USD 285 million.
According to documents disclosed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange website on April 3, Wang Xing, the non-executive director of Li Auto and founder of Meituan, reduced his holdings of Li Autos Hong Kong stocks by selling 400,000 shares on March 30 at an average price of HKD 97.74 per share, cashing out a total of HKD 39.0976 million.
Currently, Wang Xings shareholding has decreased to 22.35%, but he is still the largest external shareholder of Li Auto.

Specific shareholding information will be based on the annual report after the 2022 annual report is issued.
From March 28 to March 30, Wang Xing had sold Li Autos Hong Kong stocks for three consecutive trading days, with a total of 1.33 million shares sold at an average price of HKD 93.2, HKD 97.81, and HKD 97.74, respectively, cashing out approximately HKD 128 million.
