U Power Limited Receives Nasdaq Delisting Notification and Intends to Appeal

SHANGHAI, Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — U Power Limited (Nasdaq: UCAR) (the “Company” or “U Power”), a vehicle sourcing services provider with a vision to becoming a comprehensive EV battery power solution provider in China, today announced that on February 14, 2024, it received a notification letter (the “Letter”) from the Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company of Nasdaq’s determination to delist the Company’s ordinary shares from The Nasdaq Capital Market because the Company’s ordinary shares had a closing bid price of $0.10 or less for ten consecutive trading days as of February 13, 2024, which triggered a notice of delisting pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(iii) (the “Low Priced Stocks Rule”).

In addition to the Low Priced Stocks Rule delisting notice, the Company also currently fails to satisfy the requirement that the closing bid price of its ordinary shares remain at $1.00 or higher, as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Price Rule”), and had received a notice from Nasdaq in that regard on January 19, 2024.

Pursuant to the Letter, unless the Company requests an appeal of this determination, trading of the Company’s common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on February 23, 2024, and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will remove the Company’s ordinary shares from listing and registration on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

The Company plans to appeal Nasdaq’s determination to a Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) on February 21, 2024. A hearing request will stay the suspension of the Company’s ordinary shares and the filing of the Form 25-NSE pending the Panel’s decision.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ordinary shares and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including a reverse share split, to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules for continued listing on Nasdaq.
