On May 5, 2022, Youdao issued a press release “provid[ing] an update on its status under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (the ‘HFCAA’).”  The press release stated, in relevant part, that “[o]n May 4, 2022, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘SEC’) provisionally named the Company as a Commission-Identified Issuer after the Company filed its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 with the SEC on April 28, 2022, which included an audit report issued by a public accounting firm that the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the ‘PCAOB’) has determined that it is unable to inspect or investigate completely.”  The press release advised investors that “[i]n accordance with the HFCAA, if the SEC determines that a company has filed audit reports issued by a registered public accounting firm that cannot be inspected or investigated completely by the PCAOB for three consecutive years beginning in 2021, the SEC shall prohibit its shares or American depositary shares (the ‘ADSs’) from being traded on a national securities exchange or in the over-the-counter trading market in the United States.” 

On this news, Youdao’s ADS price fell $0.67 per share, or 9.24%, to close at $6.58 per share on May 5, 2022.
