Miami, Florida, May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On May 22, 2024, Maquia Capital Acquisition Corporation (“Maquia” or the “Company”), received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) (the “Notice”) that Maquia was delinquent in the filing of its periodic Form 10Q Report with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for the period ending March 31, 2024 and that Nasdaq has initiated a process which could result in the delisting of the Company’s securities from Nasdaq Stock Market as a result of the Company not being in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Listing Rule”), which requires listed companies to file in a timely manner all required periodic financial reports with the SEC. The Company intends to timely appeal the Notice and request a hearing in accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5815(a)(1)(B). A request for a hearing regarding a delinquent filing will stay the suspension of the Company’s securities for a period of 15 days from the date of the request. The Company is working diligently to file the delinquent periodic report as soon as possible to regain full compliance with the Listing Rule. There can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the Company’s plan to regain compliance or that the Company will be successful in implementing its plan to regain compliance with the Rule, by filing the Report with the Commission

Previous to this, and as reported by the Company, on May 7, 2024, the Company, received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) (the “May 7 Notice”) that Maquia was not in compliance with  Nasdaq Listing Rule IM-5101-2 requiring a special purpose acquisition company must complete one or more business combinations within 36 months of the effectiveness of its IPO registration statement triggering the issuance of a Staff Delisting Determination under Rule 5810 to delist the Company's securities. The Company has appealed this determination, the hearing for which is currently set for June 20, 2024.

The May 7 Notice also indicated that on January 8, 2024 (as reported on the Company’s January 12, 2024 8K), the Company failed to hold an annual meeting of stockholders within the required twelve-month period of the end of the Company’s fiscal year end. As noted in the Company’s 8K filed May 21, 2024, the Company held its annual meeting on May 20, 2024, and is now in compliance with the Listing Rule.


Additional information about the termination of the Business Combination Agreement will be provided in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by Maqua with the SEC and available at
