Techfaith Receives Non-Compliance Notice From Nasdaq Regarding Minimum Market Value of Publicly Held Shares

BEIJING, July 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- China TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Limited (NASDAQ: CNTF) ("TechFaith" or the "Company"), today reported that it received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq advising the Company that it is not in compliance with Rule 5450(b)(1)(C) requiring maintenance of a minimum market value of publicly held shares (MVPHS) of $5,000,000.

The Company has a 180 days' period, until December 26, 2019, to regain compliance with the $5,000,000 MVPHS.  The Company's ADSs will continue to be listed and trade on the Nasdaq Global Market during this period, unaffected by the receipt of the written notification from Nasdaq.  If the MVPHS closes at $5,000,000 or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.

In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule prior to the expiration of the compliance period, it will receive written notification that its securities are subject to delisting. Alternatively, the Company may apply to transfer the Company's securities to The Nasdaq Capital Market, subject to meeting the Nasdaq Capital Market's continued listing requirements.
