BEIJING, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Gridsum Holding Inc. ("Gridsum" or "Company") (NASDAQ:GSUM), a leading provider of cloud-based big-data analytics and artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions in China, today reported that it has received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq"), dated January 2, 2019, notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with the requirements for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(2) because it did not file its report on Form 6-K containing an interim balance sheet and income statement for the six month period ended June 30, 2018 ("2018 Interim Report"), by December 31, 2018. As described in the letter, the failure to file the 2018 Interim Report qualified as a separate basis for delisting which the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Panel") would consider in connection with the Company's listing, and allowing the Company to present its views with respect to the additional deficiency in a letter to the Panel no later than January 9, 2019.
Separately, on January 4, 2019, the Company received a letter from the Panel indicating that the Panel had granted the Company until the Company's requested date of January 31, 2019 to regain compliance with its reporting obligations, and requesting that the Company provide the Panel with an update with respect to, among other things, the completion of the Company's audit and filing of the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the "2017 Annual Report"), by no later than January 11, 2019.
The Company provided a response to both letters on January 7, 2019. Later on January 7, 2019, the Company filed both the 2017 Annual Report and the 2018 Interim Report with the SEC; therefore, the Company has now filed all periodic reports required under applicable SEC and Nasdaq regulations.
