Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On January 26, 2022, Waitr Holdings Inc. (the “Company” or “we”) received written notice from Nasdaq Listing Qualifications staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), indicating that the minimum bid price of our common stock has closed at less than $1.00 per share over the last 30 consecutive business days and, as a result, did not comply with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), which requires a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share (the “Bid Price Rule”).
The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock. In accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), we are being provided 180 calendar days, or until July 25, 2022, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. If at any time before July 25, 2022, the bid price of our common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Staff will provide us with written confirmation of compliance with the Bid Price Rule and the matter will be closed.
If we fail to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule before July 25, 2022, but meet certain other applicable standards, the Company may be eligible for additional time to comply with the Bid Price Rule. To qualify, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period. If it not eligible for an additional grace period, the Company will receive notification from the Staff that its securities are subject to delisting. The Company may then appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Hearings Panel.
The Company is actively taking steps to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules, including actively monitoring the bid price for its common stock between now and July 25, 2022 and considering available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
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.
