On April 25, 2021, media reports revealed that the government of the City of Beijing had fined four online education agencies, including the New Oriental subsidiary Koolearn, the maximum fine of 500,000 yuan each for misleading customers with false advertising regarding course pricing. On May 12, 2021, news reports revealed that an impending crackdown by the Chinese government on the private tutoring sector would be further reaching and more drastic than previously publicly known, including that regulators had already taken adverse actions against New Oriental and other for-profit tutoring companies. 

On this news, New Oriental fell $2.77 per ADR, or 19.4%, over the following two trading sessions to close at $11.51 per ADR on May 13, 2021.

On June 1, 2021, Chinese regulators announced that they had fined 15 off-campus training institutions, including New Oriental, for illegal activities such as false advertising and fraud. New Oriental’s ADR price fell $1.77 per ADR, or 16%, over the following two trading sessions to close at $9.32 per ADR on June 3, 2021. 

Subsequently, on July 23, 2021, China unveiled a sweeping overhaul of its education sector, banning companies that teach the school curriculum from making profits, raising capital or going public, effectively ending any potential growth in the for-profit tutoring sector in China. On July 25, 2021, New Oriental published an “update” on the new regulations, which stated that the Company will “comply with relevant rules and regulations when providing educational services” and “expects such measures to have material adverse impact on its after-school tutoring services related to academic subjects in China’s compulsory education system.”

On this news, New Oriental fell $4.46 per ADR, or nearly 70%, over the following two trading sessions to close at $1.94 per ADR on July 26, 2021.
