Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On February 25, 2022, Greenlane Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) received a deficiency letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, for the last 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price for the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”) had been below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (“Rule 5550(a)(2)”). The Nasdaq deficiency letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s Class A Common Stock, and the Class A Common Stock will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “GNLN” at this time.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been given 180 calendar days, or until August 24, 2022, to regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2). If the Company chooses to implement a reverse stock split, it must complete the split no later than ten business days prior to August 24, 2022, to regain compliance. If at any time before August 24, 2022, the bid price of the Class A Common Stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Staff will provide written confirmation that the Company has regained compliance.
If the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by August 24, 2022, the Company may be afforded a second 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the minimum bid price requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to notify Nasdaq of its intent to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period.
The Company intends to actively monitor the closing bid price for the Class A Common Stock and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2).
