(NASDAQ: CJJD) (the “Company“), a leading online and offline retailer and wholesale distributor of pharmaceutical and other healthcare products and healthcare provider in China, today announced that on December 13, 2023, the Company received another 180 calendar day extension from Nasdaq’s Listing Qualifications Department (“Nasdaq“) to meet Nasdaq’s continuing listing requirements by maintaining a minimum bid price per share of $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days (the “Minimum Bid Price Rules“). The Company now has until June 10, 2024 to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rules.
