This current report on Form 6-K is being filed to disclose the home country rule exemption of EZGO Technologies Ltd. (“we”, “our”, “us” or the “Company”) that it intends to disclose in its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021.
As a business company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands that is listed on Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”), the Company is subject to Nasdaq corporate governance listing standards. Under Nasdaq rules, listed non-U.S. companies may, in general, follow their home country corporate governance practices in lieu of some of the Nasdaq corporate governance requirements. Pursuant to the home country rule exemption set forth under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5615(a)(3)(A), which provides (with certain exceptions not relevant to the conclusions expressed herein) that a Foreign Private Issuer may follow its home country practice in lieu of the requirements of the Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5600 Series, we elected to be exempt from the requirements as follows:
|(a)||Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5620 which provides that (with certain exceptions not relevant to the conclusions expressed herein) each company listing common stock or voting preferred stock, and their equivalents, shall hold an annual meeting of shareholders no later than one year after the end of the company's fiscal year-end; and|
|(b)||Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5635 which sets forth the circumstances under which shareholder approval is required prior to an issuance of securities in connection with: (i) the acquisition of the stock or assets of another company; (ii) equity-based compensation of officers, directors, employees or consultants; (iii) a change of control; and (iv) transactions other than public offerings.|
Except for the foregoing, we endeavor to comply with the Nasdaq corporate governance practices and except for the foregoing, there is no significant difference between our corporate governance practices and what the Nasdaq requires of domestic U.S. companies. A copy of the home country rule exemption letter from the Company’s legal counsel is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
