CHANGZHOU, China, Oct. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — EZGO Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: EZGO) (“EZGO” or the “Company”), a leading short-distance transportation solutions provider in China, today announced that the Company had received a notification letter (the “Notification Letter”) dated October 18, 2023 from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), notifying the Company that it is currently not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). It resulted from the fact that the closing bid price of the Company’s ordinary shares, par value US$0.001 per share (“Ordinary Shares”) was below $1.00 per share for a period of 30 consecutive business days from September 6, 2023 to October 17, 2023.
This press release is issued pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a deficiency notification. The Notification Letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s Ordinary Shares, which will continue to trade uninterrupted on Nasdaq under the ticker “EZGO”.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until April 15, 2024 (the “Compliance Period”), to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement. If at any time during the Compliance Period, the closing bid price per share of the Company’s Ordinary Shares is at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.
In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement by April 15, 2024, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day grace period to regain compliance. 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, including by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Company chooses to implement a reverse stock split, it must complete the split no later than 10 business days prior to April 15, 2024 or the expiration of the second compliance period if granted.
The Company’s operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notification Letter. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its Ordinary Shares and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including, but not limited to, implementing a reverse share split of its outstanding Ordinary Shares, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
