JD.com (NASDAQ: JD) disclosed:

  • The Board is pleased to announce that the Company intends to spin-off JD Logistics by way of a separate listing of the JD Logistics Shares on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The Company submitted a spin-off proposal to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange pursuant to PN15 in relation to the Proposed Spin-off and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange has confirmed that the Company may proceed with the Proposed Spin-off.

On 16 February 2021, JD Logistics, through its Joint Sponsors, submitted a listing application form (Form A1) to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange to apply for the listing of, and permission to deal in, the JD Logistics Shares on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

It is currently proposed that the Proposed Spin-off will be effected by way of the Global Offering of the JD Logistics Shares, comprising the Hong Kong Public Offering and the International Offering. Upon completion of the Proposed Spin-off, the Company will continue to indirectly hold more than 50% of the shareholdings in JD Logistics and therefore JD Logistics will remain as a subsidiary of the Company.

Details in respect of the Proposed Spin-off, including the size and structure of the Global Offering, the extent of the decrease in shareholding percentage of the Company in JD Logistics, have not yet been finalised.

The Proposed Spin-off is subject to, among other things, the obtaining of an approval from the Listing Committee of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange for listing of, and permission to deal in, the JD Logistics Shares, and the final decisions of the Board and of the board of directors of JD Logistics. Shareholders and potential investors of the Company should be aware that there is no assurance that the Proposed Spin-off will take place or as to when it may take place. Shareholders and potential investors of the Company should therefore exercise caution when dealing in or investing in the securities of the Company.

Further announcement(s) will be made by the Company in relation to the Proposed Spin-off as and when appropriate.
