REE Automotive Ltd. Updates That It Has Received Nasdaq Notification Regarding Minimum Bid Price Requirement

November 10, 2022

TEL-AVIV, Israel, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- REE Automotive Ltd. (NASDAQ: REE) (“REE” or the “Company”), an automotive technology company and provider of electric vehicle platforms, received a notification on November 7, 2022 from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that it no longer satisfies Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because for the past 30 consecutive business days preceding the date of the notification (“Notice”), the bid price per share of the Company’s Class A Ordinary Shares, without par value (“Ordinary Shares”) had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum bid price required for continued listing on Nasdaq (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”).

The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s Ordinary Shares, and the Company’s Ordinary Shares continue to trade on Nasdaq under the symbol “REE”.

Under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), if during the 180 calendar day period following the date of the Notice (the “Compliance Period”), the closing bid price of the Company’s Ordinary Shares is at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Company will regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement and its Ordinary Shares will continue to be eligible for listing on Nasdaq absent noncompliance with any other requirement for continued listing.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the Compliance Period, under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(ii), the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day compliance period if it applies to transfer the listing of its Ordinary 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 Ordinary 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.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the Compliance Period (or the Compliance Period as may be extended) the Company’s Ordinary Shares will be subject to delisting.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its Ordinary Shares and will consider its options in order to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
