LianBio Issues Statement Regarding the HFCAA

Company’s principal auditor is located in the United States and is currently inspected by the PCAOB

Shanghai and Princeton, NJ - March 10, 2022 – Following the Determination Report of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) issued on December 16, 2021, on March 8, 2022 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) released a provisional list of companies identified as “Commission-Identified Issuers” under the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (“HFCAA”). LianBio (Nasdaq: LIAN) is not currently on this list and does not expect to be named by the SEC as a “Commission Identified Issuer” under the HFCAA.

Unlike the companies currently identified on the SEC’s provision list, LianBio’s retained principal auditor is a large independent public accounting firm located in New York, USA and is currently inspected by the PCAOB. Therefore, LianBio does not believe it will be subject to the provisions under the HFCAA that are applicable to issuers whose auditors are located in a foreign jurisdiction and that the PCAOB is unable to inspect or investigate.

Important information and disclosures on these topics contained in LianBio’s public filings are available on its website and at www.sec.gov.
