Newegg Receives Nasdaq Notification Regarding Minimum Bid Requirements, Simultaneously Announces Inaugural $10 Million Share Repurchase Program

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., November 13, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On November 6, 2023, Newegg Commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEGG) (the "Company" or "Newegg") received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Capital Market ("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), because the closing bid price of the Company’s common shares was below the minimum of $1.00 per share for a period of 30 consecutive business days. This press release is issued pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a deficiency notification. The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common shares, which will continue to trade uninterrupted on Nasdaq under the ticker "NEGG."

Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until May 6, 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 common shares is at least $1.00 for a minimum of ten 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 May 6, 2024, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-calendar-day grace period.

The Company today also announced that its board of directors approved a new share repurchase program to purchase up to $10.0 million of its outstanding common shares, effective immediately.

Repurchases under the program may be made in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or by other means, including through trading plans intended to qualify under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and accelerated share repurchase agreements, with the amount and timing of repurchases to be determined at Newegg’s discretion, depending on market and business conditions, and prevailing stock prices among other factors. Open market repurchases will be structured to occur in accordance with applicable federal securities laws. The share repurchase program will be effective for two years, beginning on November 9, 2023 and ending on November 8, 2025. This program does not obligate Newegg to repurchase any particular amount of common shares, and may be modified, suspended or terminated at any time.

Newegg expects to fund repurchases with a combination of existing cash and cash equivalents and cash flows from operations. As of June 30, 2023, Newegg had cash and cash equivalents of $51.8 million.
