Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.


The Board of Directors of ZW Data Action Technologies Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”) has approved a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) at a ratio of 1-for-5 (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Reverse Stock Split became effective on January 18, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), and the shares of Common Stock began trading on the split-adjusted basis on the Nasdaq under the Company’s existing trading symbol “CNET” at market open on January 20, 2023.


Under Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) Section 78.207, the Company may decrease its authorized shares of Common Stock and correspondingly decrease the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors, without obtaining the approval of the stockholders. The Reverse Stock Split was effected by the Company filing a Certificate of Change (the “Certificate”) pursuant to NRS Section 78.209 with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on the Effective Date. As a result of the filing of the Certificate, the number of shares of the Company’s authorized Common Stock was reduced from 100,000,000 shares to 20,000,000 shares and the issued and outstanding number of shares of the Common Stock was correspondingly decreased.


On the Effective Date, the total number of shares of Common Stock held by each stockholder of the Company will be converted automatically into the number of shares of Common Stock equal to (i) the number of issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock held by each such stockholder immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, divided by (ii) 5, with such resulting number of shares rounded up to the nearest whole share. The Company will issue one whole share of the post-Reverse Stock Split Common Stock to any stockholder who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. As a result, no fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split and no cash or other consideration will be paid in connection with any fractional shares that would otherwise have resulted from the Reverse Stock Split.


The Reverse Stock Split has no effect on the par value of the Company’s Common Stock or authorized shares of preferred stock. Immediately after the Reverse Stock Split, each stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company and proportional voting power will remain unchanged, except for minor changes and adjustments that will result from the treatment of fractional shares. The rights and privileges of the holders of shares of Common Stock will be substantially unaffected by the Reverse Stock Split.


Stockholders who are holding their shares in electronic form at brokerage firms do not need to take any action, as the effect of the Reverse Stock Split will automatically be reflected in their brokerage accounts. Stockholders holding paper certificates may (but are not required to) send the certificates to the Company’s transfer agent and registrar, Empire Stock Transfer. Empire Stock Transfer will issue a new stock certificate reflecting the Reverse Stock Split to each requesting stockholder.


The Reverse Stock Split was primarily effected to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).


Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.


The description under Item 3.03 above of the reduction in the number of shares of the Company’s authorized and issued and outstanding Common Stock is incorporated by reference herein.
