Arrival Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Non-Compliance Letter Regarding Minimum Bid Price Requirement
LUXEMBOURG, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On October 31, 2022, Arrival (NASDAQ: ARVL) (the “Company”), inventor of a unique new method of design and production of electric vehicles (EVs) by local Microfactories, received a notification (the “Notification”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Company no longer satisfies Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the closing bid price of the Company’s ordinary shares (the “Shares”) was below $1.00 per Share for 30 consecutive business days preceding the date of the Notification.
The Notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Shares, and the Shares continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ARVL”.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company is provided with a grace period of 180 days, or until May 1, 2023, to meet the minimum bid price requirement under the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If at any time during the 180-day grace period, the closing bid price of the Shares is $1.00 per Share or higher for at least ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed. In the event the Company does not regain compliance within the 180-day grace period, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day grace period if it applies to transfer the listing of the Shares to the Nasdaq Capital Market. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for the market value of its publicly held Shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and provide written notice of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Nasdaq staff determines that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible for such additional compliance period, Nasdaq will provide notice that the Shares will be subject to delisting. The Company would have the right to appeal a determination to delist the Shares, and the Shares would remain listed on the Nasdaq Global Market until the completion of the appeal process
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its Shares during the grace period and will consider its options in order to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement.
