Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously disclosed, on January 26, 2022, Waitr Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the closing bid price per share for the Company’s common stock had closed below $1.00 for the previous 30 consecutive business days (the “Bid Price Rule”). The Company was given until July 25, 2022, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. On July 28, 2022, in connection with the transfer of the Nasdaq listing from the Global Select Market to the Capital Market, the Company was granted by Nasdaq an additional 180-day grace period, or until January 23, 2023, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
On January 24, 2023, the Company received written notice (the “Delisting Notice”) from the staff of Nasdaq notifying the Company that, as a result of the failure to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), Nasdaq had determined that the Company’s common stock will be delisted from the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Delisting Notice indicated that the Company may appeal Nasdaq’s determination pursuant to procedures set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5800 Series. The Company does not expect to appeal this determination.
Trading of the Company common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on February 2, 2023 and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), which will remove the Company common stock from listing and registration on Nasdaq. As a result of this delisting, and pursuant to the Company’s previously submitted application for trading on the OTCQB Venture Market (“OTCQB”), the common stock is expected to begin trading on the OTCQB on February 2, 2023 under the same trading symbol, “ASAP.”
The transition does not affect the Company’s operations and does not change reporting requirements under SEC rules.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
