Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On July 26, 2022, Waitr Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) received approval (the “Approval”) from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Nasdaq”) that the Company’s application to transfer the listing of its common stock from the Nasdaq Global Select Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market has been approved. The common stock will be transferred to the Nasdaq Capital Market at the opening of trading on July 28, 2022. The Nasdaq Capital Market operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Select Market, and the common stock will continue to trade under the symbol “WTRH” and trading of its common stock will be unaffected by this transfer.
As previously disclosed, on January 26, 2022, the Company received a letter from 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 rule.
In response, the Company filed an application to transfer the listing of its common stock from the Nasdaq Global Select Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. As a result of the Approval, the Company has been granted an additional 180-day grace period, or until January 23, 2023, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. As a condition of the Approval imposed by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(i), the Company notified Nasdaq that it would seek to implement a reverse stock split, if necessary, to 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.
