(the "Company" or NASDAQ: LXEH), a prestigious private education service provider in China, today announced that it received a letter dated November 2, 2023 from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that since its listed securities did not have a closing bid price of at least US$1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the 180 calendar days ended October 30, 2023, the Company has not regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the "Rule"), which requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share.

The Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Panel to present its plan for regaining compliance with the Rule and request continued listing pending its return to compliance. A hearing request will stay the suspension of the Company’s securities and the filing of the Form 25-NSE pending the Panel’s decision.
