LIZHI INC. Regains Compliance with Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Requirement

GUANGZHOU, China, Oct. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIZHI INC. (“LIZHI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LIZI), an audio-based social and entertainment platform, today announced that it had received a notification letter (the “Compliance Notification”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), dated October 4, 2023, notifying the Company that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share requirement set forth under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Nasdaq Capital Market Minimum Bid Price Requirement").

As announced on October 12, 2022, LIZHI was notified by Nasdaq that the Company was not in compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, as the closing bid price of the Company’s American depositary shares (“ADSs”) was below US$1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days. As announced on March 29, 2023, Nasdaq approved the Company's request to transfer the listing of its ADSs from The Nasdaq Global Market to The Nasdaq Capital Market, as a result of which the Company was eligible for an additional period to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market Minimum Bid Price Requirement for continued listing. To regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the closing bid price of the Company's ADSs needs to be at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days.

As part of its efforts to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the Company changed the ratio of its ADSs representing Class A ordinary shares from one (1) ADS representing twenty (20) Class A ordinary shares to one (1) ADS representing two hundred (200) Class A ordinary shares. The change became effective on September 20, 2023.

On October 4, 2023, Nasdaq confirmed in the Compliance Notification that the closing bid price of the Company’s ADSs has been at $1.00 per share or greater for the ten consecutive business days from September 20, 2023 through October 3, 2023. Accordingly, the Company has regained compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market Minimum Bid Price Requirement, and the matter is now closed.
