Tom Group said in the announcement that Tom Online's withdrawal from the stock market had been approved on August 31, 2007. Tom Online will also withdraw from Nasdaq on September 6.
Tom Group said that each of Tom Online's investors would soon receive a cash check which would be posted to them between September 7 and September 10.
Tom Online has been plagued by financial worries since most of its revenue has come from wireless value-added services in China, but these services have seen diminishing returns for many companies in this sector.
