SHANGHAI, April 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Boqii Holding Limited (“Boqii” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BQ), a leading pet-focused platform in China, today announced that it has received a letter dated April 5, 2022 (the “Letter”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), notifying the Company that its total market capitalization and stockholders’ equity are below the NYSE compliance criteria.
Pursuant to applicable NYSE continued listing standards, a company would be considered “below criteria” by the NYSE if its total market capitalization is less than US$50 million over a 30 trading-day period and its stockholders’ equity is less than US$50 million. A review of the current financial condition of the Company by the NYSE shows that, as of April 4, 2022, the Company’s 30 trading-day average market capitalization was approximately US$48 million and its last reported stockholders’ equity as of December 31, 2021 was approximately US$32.2 million. Accordingly, the Company is now subject to the procedures as set forth in Sections 801 and 802 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, and is required to respond within 90 days of the Letter with a business plan that demonstrates compliance with the continued listing standard within 18 months of receipt of the Letter. The business plan will be reviewed for final disposition by the Listings Operations Committee (the “Committee”) of the NYSE.
The Committee will either accept the plan, at which time the Company will be subject to quarterly monitoring for compliance with this business plan, or the Committee will not accept the business plan and the Company will be subject to suspension by the NYSE and delisting by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
The Letter from the NYSE has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s ADSs, which will continue to trade on the NYSE. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the NYSE may promptly initiate suspension and delisting procedures with respect to a company that is determined to have average global market capitalization over a consecutive 30 trading-day period of less than $15 million.
To address this issue, the Company intends to comply with the applicable procedures and is considering its options to regain compliance.
