- As the 12th Global Tiger Day on July 29 approaches, HUYA Inc. ("Huya" or the "Company"), a leading game live streaming platform in China has initiated a series of activities to increase public awareness of wild tiger conservation with the participation of popular celebrities and live streamers, in a mission to help audiences understand the importance of biodiversity and sustainability. The lineup of activities will take place both online and offline.

Huya works with non-profit organizations (NGOs), celebrities, and live streamers to raise awareness of wildlife conservation

To increase public awareness of environmental issues and enhance its wildlife conservation efforts, Huya has joined hands with China Wildlife Conservation Association(CWCA) , WildAid , communication think-tank platform CMForGood and other organizations, to launch the Stand Up for Tigers and Their Habitat series of activities, with the aim of sharing knowledge about wild tiger conservation and raising public awareness of environmental protection and animal conservation.

Huya launched a series of online and offline activities to increase public awareness of wild tiger conservation on Global Tiger Day.

Huya believes that transforming China into a beautiful homeland with a sound ecological environment is a collective effort that can start with you and me. By dint of being a live streaming platform, Huya will continue to mobilize resources from all walks of life to broaden the reach of public education on wildlife conservation in various innovative ways, such as incorporating content on public good and environmental protection into live streaming events, and, by doing so, make a contribution to biodiversity and sustainability.

These series of activities include the exhibition of videos and posters featuring well-known actors and actresses; live broadcasts by popular streamers on Huya Live, interactive H5 sessions on environmental protection, among other formats. These activities highlight the necessity and urgency of wildlife conservation, while providing in-depth insights regarding the theme of " Protecting tigers is protecting the ecosystem human survival depends upon; Stand up for tigers and their habitat and help secure a chance for our own future."

Celebrities including Yang Zi , Yu Menglong and Zhang Daxian , were invited as advocates who can leverage their influence to give more visibility to the issue of wild tiger conservation.

Huya launched a series of online and offline activities to increase public awareness of wild tiger conservation on Global Tiger Day.

As one of the highlights of these activities, Huya also launches a "Protect Our Home Planet" painting contest, collecting hundreds of works including illustrations, intangible cultural heritage prints, watercolors, cartoons and other creative forms. Among the submissions are professional works from an illustrator studio and by autism artists, as well as amateur works from volunteers, live streamers, supporters and others, with the intent of depicting their viewpoints of how they interpret wildlife conservation. One participating author wrote a note about his submission entitled "Harmonious Home", stating that "environmental protection is essential nowadays. The best way to keep going forward is to make sure humans and wildlife can live in harmony. I hope we can live harmoniously with wildlife in the global village."

On July 27 , Huya, in collaboration with CWCA, TRAFFIC and International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) , hosted an exhibition for the first time, where the quality works from the " Protect Our Home Planet " painting contest were exhibited. Sha Yu Yo , one of Huya Live's popular streamers, acted as the exhibition ambassador to interact with the audience, and made their artistic creations on the on-site tents and umbrellas as well as on the sign-in wall, among other activities.

Huya launched a series of online and offline activities to increase public awareness of wild tiger conservation on Global Tiger Day.

The campaign concludes with a live broadcast on the Global Tiger Day, which starts at 8pm and invites Huya's popular streamer Zhang Daxian to have an online talk with IFAW Program Manager Ma Chenyue . The talk provides online audiences with expertise on the protection of wild tigers and their habitat through fun interactive activities, such as hand-painting of tigers and online quizzes.

Leveraging the power of live streaming, Huya makes a strong commitment to social responsibilities

Serving as a comprehensive live streaming platform, Huya has been exploring innovative practices in social responsibility through leveraging its platform capabilities and superior resources. Huya has developed a new "live streaming-empowered" mode for a variety of corporate social responsibility (CSR) genres, including activities of public welfare, environmental protection, support for farmers, anti-fraud guidance, intangible cultural heritage and others.

Among the lineup of genres, activities of public interest and environmental protection are the priorities that Huya has been working on. As an example, the Company partnered with intangible cultural heritage inheritors to create tiger-themed artworks in various formats on Global Tiger Day 2021, including egg-carving and dough modeling, calling for society to protect the King of the Forest. At the annual gala "HUYA Boom Night" in January 2022 , Huya launched its "Protect Our Home Planet" Campaign to raise public awareness of preventing and resisting illegal wildlife trade online, and promote harmony between human and nature. In addition, to celebrate Earth Day on April 22 , Huya worked with environmental organizations – Northeast China Tiger and Leopard National Park , and Giant Panda National Park – to conduct a series of earth protection activities.

Huya also encouraged over 100,000 volunteers to become involved in various environmental protection activities, enriched the platform content on how to increase public awareness of protecting the environment, and strengthened its capabilities in AI and VR technologies to help better identify on Huya platform and protect wild animals and plants.

As part of its commitment to "living in harmony with nature and protecting our planet together" , Huya is working on the establishment of an ecosystem of environmental public good live streaming, with the participation of streamers, platforms, users, volunteers and non-profit organizations. The effort has been widely acclaimed by people and organizations from all walks of life.

Wu Minglu, the Secretary General of CWCA , said that participation of companies provides wildlife and biodiversity conservation strong support, "Huya is devoted to setting up a commonweal live environment with live streamers, platforms, users, volunteers and NGOs, and building a bridge for more people to participate in biodiversity conservation."

Huya will continue to engage the strengths of all parties to promote coexistence between human and nature, encourage more people to join the wildlife conservation movement and make contributions to wild tiger conservation and endangered species recovery.

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.

EAST SIDE GAMES GROUP ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

east side games logo (CNW Group/East Side Games Group)

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
