FOSHAN, China, Sept. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Scholar Education Holdings Limited ("Bright Scholar" or the "Company") (NYSE: BEDU), a global premier education service company, today announced that based upon a notice the Company received on September 1, 2022 from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE"), the Company has regained compliance with the NYSE's continued listing standard for share prices.
On March 25, 2022, the NYSE notified the Company of its non-compliance with the NYSE's price criteria for continued listing standard because, as of March 24, 2022, the average closing price of the Company's American Depositary Shares (the "ADSs") was less than US$1.00 per ADS over a consecutive 30 trading-day period. In order to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement, the Company changed the ratio of its ADSs to its Class A ordinary shares (the "ADS Ratio"), par value US$0.00001 per share, from the previous ADS Ratio of one (1) ADS to one (1) Class A ordinary share to the current ADS Ratio of one (1) ADS to four (4) Class A ordinary shares, effective August 19, 2022.
On September 1, 2022, the Company received a confirmation from the NYSE that a calculation of the Company's average ADS price for the 30-trading days ended August 31, 2022, indicated that the Company's ADS price was above the NYSE's minimum requirement of US$1.00 based on a 30-trading day average. Accordingly, the Company is no longer considered below the US$1.00 continued listing criterion. As a result, the Company has regained compliance within the prescribed time, and the ADSs will continue to be traded on the NYSE, subject to the Company's continued compliance with all applicable continued listing criteria.
