This includes, but is not limited to, any event that may call into question the Company’s ability to meet the terms of the exception granted.

The Panel’s above determination is based on (1) certain serious difficulties, exhibited by the Company during the hearing before the Panel on November 17, 2022, in meeting the requirements of a U.S. listed Company, including but not limited to the lacking of accounting or audit personnel with sufficient experience with or familiarity with U.S. and Chinese accounting rules and the filing requirements of Nasdaq due to the resignation of the prior CFO, and the difficulties of identifying a competent CFO as a result of restrictions currently in place in China due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; and (2) the work that has been undertaken by the Company to cure the deficiencies, including but not limited to obtaining the approval by the shareholders of the Company of the share consolidation through holding an extraordinary general meeting on November 15, 2022, and working with its auditors to complete the financial statements with an anticipation to file Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022 by February 15, 2023.

The Company may request that the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council (“Review Council”) review this determination by paying a fee, if necessary. The Review Council may, on its own motion, review the Panel’s above determination and affirm, modify, dismiss or remand the determination to the Panel.
