Datasea Announces 1-for-15 Reverse Stock Split to Regain Compliance with Nasdaq Minimum Bid Requirement

BEIJING, Jan. 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Datasea Inc., a Nevada corporation (NASDAQ: DTSS) (“Datasea” or the “Company”), which engages in the business segments of U.S.-based intelligent acoustics and China-based 5G messaging technology, today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors has approved a reverse stock split of its authorized and issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a ratio of 1-for-15. The Company is effecting the reverse split to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The reverse stock split does not require the approval of the Company’s stockholders, as it was approved in accordance with Nevada Revised Statutes Section 78.207.

The reverse stock split is expected to become effective on January 19, 2024 (the “Effective Date”), and the shares are expected to begin trading on the split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange (“Nasdaq”) under the Company’s existing trading symbol “DTSS” at the market open on January 23, 2024.

On the Effective Date, every 15 issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock will be converted automatically into one share of the Company’s Common Stock without any change in the par value per share. The total number of shares of Common Stock authorized for issuance will then be reduced by a corresponding proportion from 375,000,000 shares to 25,000,000 shares of Common Stock.

Immediately after the reverse stock split, each stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company and proportional voting power will remain unchanged, except for minor changes and adjustments that will result from the rounding up of any fractional shares to the next whole number of shares. The rights and privileges of the holders of shares of Common Stock will be substantially unaffected by the reverse stock split.

West Coast Stock Transfer, Inc. is acting as transfer and exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Registered shareholders who hold shares of Common Stock are not required to take any action to receive post-reverse stock split shares. Stockholders who hold their shares in brokerage accounts or in “street name” will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split, subject to each broker’s particular processes, and will not be required to take any action in connection with the reverse stock split.
