SHANGHAI, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- JMU Limited ("the Company" or "JMU") (NASDAQ: JMU), a leading B2B online e-commerce platform that provides integrated services to suppliers and customers in the foodservice industry in China, today announced that the Company had received a notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ"), dated January 4, 2019, notifying that, the Company is currently not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the "Rule"). It has resulted from the fact that the bid price of the Company's American depositary shares ("ADSs") closed below US$1 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days from November 19, 2018 through January 3, 2019. The Company has been granted a grace period of 180 calendar days, expiring on July 3, 2019, in which to regain compliance. The Company will regain compliance if, at any time during this 180-day period, the closing bid price of the Company's ADSs is at least $1 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days. In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule within 180 calendar days, the Company may be eligible for additional time.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ADSs between now and July 3, 2019 and intends to consider available options to cure the deficiency and regain compliance with the Rule's minimum bid price requirement within the prescribed grace period. The Company's ADSs will continue to be listed and trade on the NASDAQ Global Market during this period, unaffected by the receipt of the written notice from NASDAQ.
This announcement is made in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a deficiency notification.
