Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by BuzzFeed, Inc. (the “Company”) on June 2, 2023, on May 31, 2023, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, for the previous 30 consecutive business days, the bid price for the Company’s common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Requirement”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company was provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until November 27, 2023, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement. As of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company’s common stock has not regained compliance with the Bid Price Requirement.
However, upon receipt of both the Company’s application to transfer from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market and a written notification by the Company of its intent to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement, including by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary, the Staff notified the Company in a letter dated November 28, 2023 (the “Second Nasdaq Notice”), that the Company is eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period, or until May 28, 2024, to regain compliance (the “Second Compliance Period”). The Staff’s determination was based, in part, on the Company meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market except for the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. As of the opening of business November 30, 2023, the Company’s common stock and warrants will be transferred to the Nasdaq Capital Market, which operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market, where they will continue to trade under the symbols “BZFD” and “BZFDW,” respectively.
The Company intends to continue actively monitoring the bid price for its shares of Common Stock between now and the expiration of the Second Compliance Period and, as noted above, will consider all available options to resolve the deficiency including a reverse stock split, if necessary, with every intention to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If the Company chooses to effect a reverse stock split, it will have to be implemented no later than ten business days prior to the end of the Second Compliance Period (i.e., by May 13, 2024).
If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the Second Compliance Period, Nasdaq will notify the Company that its securities would be subject to delisting. In the event of such a notification, the Company may appeal the Staff’s determination to delist its securities before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel. However, there can be no assurance that, if the Company receives a delisting notice and appeals the delisting determination, such an appeal would be successful.
