EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 2 on Form 20-F/A (this “Amendment”) amends the Annual Report on Form 20-F of Borqs Technologies, Inc. (the “Company,” “Borqs,” “we,” and “our”) for the year ended December 31, 2020, which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 26, 2021 and amended June 14, 2021 (as amended, the “Original Filing”).

 

The Company is filing this Amendment solely for the purpose of updating the disclosure in Item 16G of Part II. In accordance with Rule 12b-15 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), Item 16G of Part II of the Original Filing is hereby amended and restated in its entirety. In addition, pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Exchange Act, the Company is including Item 19 of Part III with this Amendment solely to file the certifications required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

PART II

 

ITEM 16G: CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

As a “foreign private issuer,” as defined by the SEC, we are permitted to follow home country corporate governance practices, instead of certain corporate governance practices required by Nasdaq for domestic issuers, with certain exceptions. While we voluntarily follow most Nasdaq corporate governance rules, we follow British Virgin Islands corporate governance practices in lieu of Nasdaq corporate governance rules as follows:

 

  We do not intend to follow Nasdaq Rule 5635(a), which states that shareholder approval is required prior to the issuance of securities in connection with the acquisition of the stock or assets of another company in certain circumstances.
     
  We do not intend to follow Nasdaq Rule 5635(b) which states that shareholder approval is required prior to the issuance of securities when the issuance or potential issuance will result in a change of control of the Company.
     
  We do not intend to follow Nasdaq Rule 5635(c), which requires shareholder approval for the establishment of or any material amendments to equity compensation or purchase plans or other equity compensation arrangements.
     
  We do not intend to follow Nasdaq Rule 5635(d), which requires shareholder approval in order to enter into any transaction, other than a public offering, involving the sale, issuance or potential issuance by the Company of ordinary shares (or securities convertible into or exercisable for ordinary shares) equal to 20% or more of the outstanding share capital of the Company or 20% or more of the voting power outstanding before the issuance for less than the greater of book or market value of the ordinary shares. We will follow British Virgin Islands law with respect to any requirement to obtain shareholder approval in connection with any private placements of equity securities.
     
  We do not intend to follow Nasdaq Rule Rule 5640 which states that rights of existing shareholders cannot be disparately reduced or restricted through any corporate action or issuance.
