Trans-India Acquisition Corporation (“Trans-India”) and its directors and executive officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies for the special meeting of Trans-India stockholders to be held to approve the proposed acquisition between Trans-India and Solar Semiconductor Ltd. (“Solar”). Each of Trans-India’s officers and directors holds common stock of Trans-India, which have no rights to any liquidation distribution Trans-India makes with respect to the common stock sold in its initial public offering (“IPO”). Therefore, their equity holding will be worthless if Trans-India does not acquire a target business within two years of the IPO as required by Trans-India’s Certificate of Incorporation.

Stockholders of Trans-India and other interested persons are advised to read Trans-India’s preliminary proxy statement and definitive proxy statement, when available, in connection with Trans-India’s solicitation of proxies for the special meeting because these proxy statements will contain important information. The definitive proxy statement will be mailed to stockholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the proposed acquisition. The proxy statement and other relevant materials (when they become available) and any other documents filed by Trans-India with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) may also be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website at In addition, stockholders may obtain free copies of the documents filed with the SEC by Trans-India by directing request to: Trans-India Acquisition Corporation, 300 South Wacker Drive, Suite 1000, Chicago, Illinois 60606, Attention: Craig Colmar, Secretary and Treasurer.
