SALT LAKE CITY, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As previously announced, on March 16, 2022, NewAge, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBEV) (the “Company” or “NewAge”), filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 indicating that the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Annual Report”) would be delayed. In addition, on March 31, 2022, the Company filed a Form 8-K indicating that the Company would be unable to file its Annual Report within the 15-day extension. As expected, on April 1, 2022, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq stating that, as a result of the delay, the Company is not in compliance with the timely filing requirement for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Nasdaq Listing Rule”).
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 Nasdaq Listing Rule, the Company's common stock will be subject to delisting from Nasdaq.
Nasdaq indicated that the Company must submit a plan of compliance (the “Plan”) within 60 days, or no later than May 31, 2022, addressing how it intends to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule and, if Nasdaq accepts the Plan, it may grant an extension of up to 180 days from the original filing due date of the Annual Report, or until September 27, 2022, to regain compliance.
The Company is working diligently and expects to file the Annual Report within the 60-day period described above, which would eliminate the need for the Company to submit a formal plan to regain compliance; however, no assurance can be given as to the definitive date on which the Annual Report will be filed.
