ATA Announces Subsidiary’s Proposed Voluntary Delisting from New Third Board


Beijing, China, August 8, 2017 — ATA Inc. (“ATA” or the “Company”, Nasdaq: ATAI), a leading provider of advanced testing technologies and testing-related services in China, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary ATA Online (Beijing) Education Technology Co., Ltd. (“ATA Online”), a company listed on the National Equities Exchange and Quotations (the “New Third Board”), the over-the-counter stock exchange in China, announced today that it will apply to voluntarily delist its shares from the New Third Board.


ATA Online decided to delist from the New Third Board to facilitate more flexible operation and strategic needs. The minimal trading volume of ATA Online’s shares on the New Third Board over a sustained period no longer justifies the expense and administrative efforts associated with maintaining its listing status.


ATA’s shares will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Market under the ticker ATAI, where it has been listed since January 2008.
