SALT LAKE CITY, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewAge, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBEV) (the “Company” or “NewAge”), announced that it received an additional delinquency notice from the Nasdaq Stock Market on May 12, 2022 notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”) due to the Company’s failure to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Rule requires listed companies to timely file all periodic financial reports with the SEC.
As previously disclosed, the Company received a notice from Nasdaq on April 1, 2022 regarding its non-compliance with the Rule following the Company’s delay in the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”). As required by these notices, the Company will submit a plan to Nasdaq on or before May 31, 2022 to regain compliance with respect to the delinquent Form 10-K and the delinquent Form 10-Q. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, it may grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the original filing due date of the Form 10-K, or until September 27, 2022, to regain compliance.
The Company expects and intends to submit to Nasdaq the compliance plan by May 31, 2022. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market; however, if the Company fails to timely regain compliance with the Rule, the Company's common stock will be subject to delisting from Nasdaq.
