Home Country Practice

NASDAQ Stock Market Rule 5605 requires that a nomination committee be comprised solely of independent directors. NASDAQ Stock Market Rule 5620 requires each NASDAQ-listed company to hold an annual meeting of shareholders no later than one year after the end of the company’s fiscal year-end. However, NASDAQ Stock Market Rule 5615(a)(3) permits foreign private issuers like us to follow “home country practice” in certain corporate governance matters.

We have elected to follow home country practice with respect to the composition of our nominating and corporate governance committee and the annual shareholder meetings. Our nominating and corporate governance committee consists of Song Wang, Ya-Qin Zhang and Yunjie Liu. Mr. Zhang and Mr. Liu satisfy the “independence” requirements of Rule 5605 of NASDAQ Stock Market Rules. Mr. Wang, the chair of our nominating and corporate governance committee, is our founder and chief executive officer.

In addition, we have also elected to follow home country practice with respect to annual meetings and did not hold an annual meeting of shareholders in 2013. It is our intention not to hold annual shareholder meetings in the future unless we have specific matters that require shareholders’ approvals.

Other than the two matters described above, there are no significant differences between our corporate governance practices and those followed by U.S. domestic companies under NASDAQ Stock Market Rules.
