Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

By an additional letter dated May 22, 2014, the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") advised ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") that the Company does not comply with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because NASDAQ has not received the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2014, and the Company remains delinquent in filing its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. NASDAQ has informed the Company that it has until June 16, 2014 to submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to these delinquent reports in accordance with a delinquency letter the Company received from NASDAQ dated April 16, 2014. If NASDAQ approves the Company's plan, it has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-K (or until October 13, 2014) to regain compliance.

The Company is continuing to work diligently to complete the Form 10-K and the Form 10-Q. If the Company is unable to file these two reports by June 16, 2014, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock on NASDAQ. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other NASDAQ listing criteria.

The Company issued a press release on May 27, 2014, disclosing its receipt of NASDAQ's notification letter dated May 22, 2014. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
