Borqs Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: BRQS, “Borqs”, or the “Company”), a global provider of 5G semiconductor chip design, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and innovative clean energy with operations in the United States, India and China, today announced that the Company’s current independent audit firm, YU Certified Public Accountant P.C., is licensed and located in the State of New York, registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) and is accessible for inspection or investigation by the PCAOB, as required by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (the “SEC”) newly finalized rules of the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable ACT (“HFCAA”). https://www.sec.gov/news/press-release/2021-250. Therefore, the Company does not believe that it will be subject to the onerous provisions under the HFCAA that are applicable to issuers whose auditors are located in a foreign jurisdiction and that the PCAOB is unable to inspect or investigate.

On December 2, 2021, the SEC adopted amendments to finalize rules implementing HFCAA which applies to registrants the SEC identifies as having filed an annual report with an audit report issued by a registered public accounting firm that is located in a foreign jurisdiction and that the PCAOB is unable to inspect or investigate (“Commission-Identified Issuers”). The final amendments require Commission-Identified Issuers to submit documentation to the SEC establishing that, if true, it is not owned or controlled by a governmental entity in the public accounting firm’s foreign jurisdiction. The final amendments also require Commission-Identified Issuers that are “foreign issuers” as defined in Exchange Act Rule 3b-4 to provide certain additional disclosures in its annual report for itself and any of its consolidated foreign operating entities. The SEC’s adopting release provides notice regarding the procedures the SEC has established to identify issuers and to impose trading prohibitions on the securities of certain Commission-Identified Issuers, as required by the HFCAA.
