BEIJING, Nov. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Secoo Holding Limited (“Secoo” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SECO) today announced that on November 14, 2023, it received a Staff Delisting Determination (the “Staff Determination”) from the Listing Qualifications Staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), which notified the Company that the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Staff has initiated a process to delist the Company’s American Depositary Shares (the “ADSs”) from Nasdaq. The Staff Determination will not immediately result in the suspension of trading or delisting of the Company’s ADSs, and the Nasdaq Listing Rules provide a procedure for the Company to appeal the Staff Determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel and seek a stay of suspension pending the outcome of the hearing, as described below.
The Staff Determination was issued because the Company had not filed its annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Form 20-F”), on or before the Extended Date (as defined below). As previously disclosed, on May 18, 2023, the Company received a notice from Nasdaq Listing notifying the Company that, because the Company had not timely filed the Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports. After the Company made a submission to Nasdaq describing its plan to regain compliance with this rule, the Company was granted an extension until November 13, 2023 (the “Extended Date”), to file its Form 20-F.
The Company plans to timely request a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel to present its plan to regain compliance with the applicable listing requirements. Such a request will stay the suspension of the Company’s ADSs and delisting action for a period of 15 days from the date of the request. In connection with its request for a hearing, the Company also plans to request an extended stay of the suspension, pending the determination of the Nasdaq Hearings Panel. According to the Staff Determination, hearings are typically scheduled to occur approximately 30-45 days after the date of a company’s hearing request.
