CBAK Energy Issues Update on Status of SEC Announcements Under Foreign Corporate Liability Act


Dalian, China, April 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBAT) (“CBAK Energy” or the “Company”), a leading lithium-ion battery manufacturer and electric power solutions provider in Chinaannounced today that the Company is aware that it has been provisionally identified by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (the “HFCAA”) the April 21, 2022.

The identification was anticipated by the company as a routine HFCAA application following CBAK Energy’s filing of an annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 with the SEC on April 15, 2022. This indicates that the SEC has determined that the company has retained an auditor who cannot be inspected or investigated completely by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the “PCAOB”), to issue the audit report for the financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Under the HFCAA, the SEC must prohibit a company securities to be traded on a US stock exchange if the company has been identified by the SEC under the HFCAA for three consecutive years due to the PCAOB’s failure to inspect its auditor due to a position taken by the authority of the foreign territory where the auditor is located.

CBAK Energy plans to identify and engage an independent accounting firm that satisfies the PCAOB control requirements for the audit of its consolidated financial statements within the required deadlines. As always, the Company will continue to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in all jurisdictions where it operates or is listed and will endeavor to maintain its listed status on the Nasdaq stock market.
