ATA Creativity Global Receives Nasdaq Notification Regarding Minimum Bid Price Deficiency


Beijing, December 15, 2023 -- ATA Creativity Global (“ACG” or the “Company”, Nasdaq: AACG), an international educational services company focused on providing quality learning experiences that cultivate and enhance students’ creativity, today announced that the Company received a written notification (the “Notification Letter”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) dated December 12, 2023, notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rules for continued listing on the Nasdaq.


Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share, and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. Based on the closing bid prices of the Company’s American depositary shares (the “ADSs”) for the 30 consecutive business days ending December 12, 2023, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement.


The Notification Letter does not impact the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq Global Market at this time. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until June 10, 2024, to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). To regain compliance, the Company’s ADSs must have a closing bid price of at least US$1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during such 180-calendar-day period. In the event the Company does not regain compliance by June 10, 2024, subject to the determination by the staff of Nasdaq, the Company may be eligible for an additional compliance period.


The Company’s business operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notification Letter. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ADSs and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including without limitation, a reverse share split, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
