BEIJING, May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Jianpu Technology Inc. ("Jianpu," or the "Company") (NYSE: JT), a leading independent open platform for the discovery and recommendation of financial products in China, today provides an update on its status under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (the "HFCAA").
The Company is aware that it has been provisionally identified by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") as a Commission-Identified Issuer under the HFCAA on May 4, 2022 U.S. Eastern Time. The Company understands that such identification may have resulted from its filing of the annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 with the SEC on April 29, 2022.
The Company understands the SEC made such identification pursuant to the HFCAA and its implementation rules issued thereunder, and this indicates that the SEC determines that the Company used a registered public accounting firm whose working paper cannot be inspected or investigated completely by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board of the United States (the "PCAOB") to issue the audit opinion for its financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
In accordance with the HFCAA, the SEC shall prohibit a company's shares or American depositary shares from being traded on a national securities exchange or in the over-the-counter trading market in the United States if such company has been identified by the SEC for three consecutive years beginning in 2021 for filing audit reports issued by a registered public accounting firm that has not been subject to inspection by the PCAOB.
The Company has been actively exploring possible solutions. It will continue to comply with applicable laws and regulations in both China and the United States and strive to maintain its listing status on the New York Stock Exchange.
