HANGZHOU, China, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BEST Inc. (NYSE: BEST) (“BEST” or the “Company”), a leading integrated smart supply chain solutions and logistics services provider in China, today announced that it has received a letter from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), dated June 2, 2022, notifying the Company that it has regained compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards.

On January 5, 2022, the NYSE notified the Company that it was not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards because, as of January 4, 2022, the average closing price of the Company’s American Depositary Shares (the “ADSs”) was less than US$1.00 per ADS over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

On May 20, 2022, the Company effected a change to a new ratio of one (1) ADS to five (5) Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.01 per share, which had the same effect as a one-for-five reverse share split.

In its letter dated June 2, 2022, the NYSE confirmed that a calculation of the Company’s average stock price for the 30-trading days ended May 31, 2022, indicated that the Company’s stock price was above the NYSE’s minimum requirement of $1 based on a 30-trading day average. Accordingly, the Company is no longer considered below the $1 continued listing criterion.
