PINTEC Receives Notice From Nasdaq Related to Delay in 20-F Filing

 

BEIJING, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pintec Technology Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: PT) (“PINTEC” or the “Company”), a leading independent technology platform enabling financial services in China, today announced that it received a notification letter from Nasdaq Listing Qualifications (“Nasdaq”) on May 14, 2019, stating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) due to its failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Form 20-F”).

 

The Company had previously filed Form 12b-25 to extend the filing deadline for its 2018 Form 20-F by 15 calendar days, but the Company notified Nasdaq on May 13, 2019, that the Company would be unable to complete the filing by the extended deadline. The Company will require additional time to finalize its financial statements and the related disclosure and it is continuing to work towards the objective of filing its 2018 Form 20-F as soon as practicable.

 

The Nasdaq notification letter provides the Company 60 calendar days from the date of the notification, or until July 13, 2019, to submit a plan to Nasdaq to regain compliance with the Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days, or until November 11, 2019, for the Company to regain compliance. The Company may regain compliance at any time during this 180-day period by filing its 2018 Form 20-F. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s compliance plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Hearing Panel under Listing Rule 5815(a). The Nasdaq notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s American depositary shares on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
