Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously disclosed, on February 12, 2024, Charge Enterprises, Inc. (sometimes referred to herein as “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our,” “Charge” or similar terms) transferred the listing of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market and applied for an additional 180-day compliance period to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Extension Request”).
The Company had previously been notified by Nasdaq on August 22, 2023, that it was no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the closing bid price per share for the Company’s Common Stock had closed below $1.00 for the previous 30 consecutive business days (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”).
On February 20, 2024, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq that the staff of Nasdaq had denied the Extension Request and determined to commence proceedings to delist the Common Stock (Symbol: CRGE) from Nasdaq. Nasdaq also informed the Company that the Common Stock will be scheduled for delisting and trading will be suspended at the opening of business on February 29, 2024.
Nasdaq determined that the Company was not eligible for the Extension Request and reached its decision to commence delisting proceedings of the Common Stock because the closing bid price of the Common Stock has closed below $0.10 and may soon trigger delisting under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(iii). The Company does not intend to appeal the staff’s determination and, accordingly, the Company expects that the Common Stock will be delisted.
The Company announced that it anticipates that the Common Stock will be quoted on the OTC Pink Market under the symbol “CRGE.”
7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
On February 22, 2024, the Company issued a press release announcing its intention to transfer the trading of the Common Stock to the OTC Pink Market following the Nasdaq delisting determination. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
