Boqii Announces ADS Ratio Change

SHANGHAI, Aug. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Boqii Holding Limited (“Boqii” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BQ) today announced that it will change its ratio of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) to Class A ordinary shares from one (1) ADS representing four and one-half (4.5) Class A ordinary shares to one ADS representing fifteen (15) Class A ordinary shares (the “ADS Ratio Change”). The ADS Ratio Change is expected to become effective on or about August 21, 2023 (U.S. Eastern Time) (the “ADS Ratio Change Effective Date”).

For Boqii’s ADS holders, the ADS Ratio Change will have the same effect as a 3-for-10 reverse split on the existing ADSs. Each ADS holder on the ADS Ratio Change Effective Date will be required on mandatory basis to surrender to The Bank of New York Mellon, as depositary, (the “Depositary”) for Boqii’s ADS program, every 10 old ADSs held in exchange for 3 new ADSs. No action is required by holders of uncertificated ADSs to effect the ADS Ratio Change as the change will be effected on the books of the Depositary.  

No fractional new ADSs will be issued in connection with the ADS Ratio Change. Instead, the Depositary will attempt to sell any fractional entitlements to new ADSs and the net cash proceeds from the sale of the fractional ADS entitlements (after deduction of fees, taxes and expenses) will be distributed to the applicable ADS holders by the Depositary. Boqii’s ADSs will continue to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “BQ”. As a result of the ADS Ratio Change, the ADS price is expected to increase proportionally, although the Company can give no assurance that the ADS price after the ADS Ratio Change will be equal to or greater than ten-thirds (10/3) times the ADS price before the change.
