BEIJING, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Tarena International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TEDU) (“Tarena” or the “Company”), a leading provider of IT professional education and IT-focused supplementary STEAM education services in China, today announced that on November 15, 2023, the Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) approved the Company’s request to transfer the listing of the Company’s American Depositary Shares (the “ADSs”) from the Nasdaq Global Select Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The transfer is expected to take effect at the opening of business on November 17, 2023.
As previously disclosed, on July 28, 2023, the Company received a written notification from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company no longer meets the continued listing requirement of minimum Market Value of Publicly Held Shares (“MVPHS”) for the Nasdaq Global Select Market, as set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b)(2)(C), because the Company’s MVPHS for the last 30 consecutive business days was below the minimum MVPHS requirement of US$15,000,000. Pursuant to the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the applicable grace period to regain compliance is 180 calendar days, or until January 24, 2024.
The Company expects to meet all of the continued listing requirements for the Nasdaq Capital Market, including the requirement on minimum MVPHS as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(5) upon the transfer. The transfer of the Company’s listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market is not expected to have any impact on trading in the Company’s ADSs. The Company’s ADSs will continue to trade uninterruptedly under the symbol “TEDU.” The Nasdaq Capital Market operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Select Market, and companies on the Nasdaq Capital Market must meet certain financial and corporate governance requirements to qualify for continued listing.
