On September 4, 2020, Reuters published an article entitled “EXCLUSIVE-Trump administration weighs blacklisting China’s chipmaker SMIC” which reported that “[t]he Trump administration is considering whether to add China’s top chipmaker SMIC to a trade blacklist,” a measure “which would force U.S. suppliers to seek a difficult-to-obtain license before shipping to the company.” 

On this news, SMIC American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) fell $3.08 per ADR, or over 20%, to close at $12.02 per ADR on September 8, 2020, the next trading day. 

Then, on September 26, 2020, Reuters published an article entitled “U.S. tightens exports to China’s chipmaker SMIC, citing risk of military use” which reported that “[t]he United States has imposed restrictions on exports to China’s biggest chip maker SMIC after concluding that there is an ‘unacceptable risk’ equipment supplied to it could b used for military purposes,” meaning that “[s]uppliers of certain equipment to [SMIC] will now have to apply for individual export licenses.” 

On this news, SMIC’s ADR price fell $0.57 per ADR, or 4.7%, to close at $11.47 per ADR on September 28, 2020.
