Jiayuan has amended its Nasdaq IPO filing to add an additional risk factor to its prospectus. Jiayuan declared that it failed to obtain a foreign exchange registration certificate from China's State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) or make an initial capital contribution of RMB 990,000 for its variable-interest entity Beijing Miyuan Information Technology. As a result, Beijing Miyuan may lose its business license, and Jiayuan may face severe penalties, potentially including discontinuation of operations. To see the full amendment, please click here.
