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

 

Effective October 14, 2020, the registrant (“we,” “our,” or the “Company”) changed its corporate name from ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. to ZW Data Action Technologies Inc.. As previously reported, our shareholders approved the name change as part of the Company’s annual shareholder meeting held on October 12, 2020. The Company filed the Certificate of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) effecting the name change with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on October 13, 2020.

 

In connection with the name change, our common stock will also begin being traded under a new CUSIP number, 98880R109, at such time. The Nasdaq ticker symbol of our common stock remains unchanged. Following the name change, the stock certificates, which reflect our prior corporate name, will continue to be valid. Certificates reflecting the new corporate name will be issued in due course as old stock certificates are tendered for exchange or transfer to our transfer agent.

 

A copy of the Certificate of Amendment we filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada is being filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1.
