Lufax Provides Update on Status Under Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act

05/10/2022

SHANGHAI, China, May 10, 2022 — Lufax Holding Ltd (“Lufax” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LU), a leading technology-empowered personal financial services platform in China, today provides an update on its status under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (the “HFCAA”).

On May 9, 2022, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) provisionally named the Company as a Commission-Identified Issuer under the HFCAA, following the Company’s filing of its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “2021 Form 20-F”).

The Company understands the SEC made this identification pursuant to the HFCAA and its implementation rules, and this indicates that the SEC has determined that the Company used an auditor whose working papers cannot be inspected or investigated completely by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board of the United States (“PCAOB”) to issue the audit opinion for the Company’s financial statements included in the 2021 Form 20-F.

In accordance with the HFCAA, if the SEC determines that the Company filed audit reports issued by a registered public accounting firm that has not been subject to inspection for the PCAOB for three consecutive years, the SEC will prohibit the ordinary shares and American depositary shares (“ADSs”) of the Company from being traded on a national securities exchange or in the over-the-counter trading market in the United States.

The Company’s ADSs, each two ADSs representing one ordinary share, are listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The Company has been actively exploring possible solutions. The Company will continue to comply with applicable laws and regulations in the United States and strive to maintain its listing status on the New York Stock Exchange.
