Description of Business
We commenced our business in China in July 2000. We incorporated China Distance Education Holdings Limited, or CDEL Cayman, in the Cayman Islands in January 2008. CDEL Cayman became our ultimate holding company in March 2008 after a series of restructurings in connection with our initial public offering in August 2008. Our ADSs are listed on the NYSE, under the symbol "DL." On March 11, 2014, we completed a follow-on public offering of 4,000,000 ADSs by us and certain selling shareholders. 37 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents Prior to 2015, we had been operating our businesses primarily through Beijing Champion, who operated most of our multiple lines of businesses.
