Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by BuzzFeed, Inc. (the “Company”) on March 8, 2024, Patrick Kerins, then a member of the Company’s board of directors and the audit committee of the board, notified the Company on March 6, 2024 that he did not intend to stand for re-election as a director of the Company at its 2024 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2024 Annual Meeting”). The Company then promptly notified the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Nasdaq Staff”) that, as a consequence of Mr. Kerins’ decision not to seek re-election, following the 2024 Annual Meeting, the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors would consist of two members and, as such, that the Company would no longer be in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A), which requires that the audit committees of listed companies have a minimum of three members that satisfy certain criteria for service on the committee (the “Nasdaq Audit Committee Requirement”). As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on April 26, 2024, on April 25, 2024, the Company held the 2024 Annual Meeting and, on April 26, 2024, as expected, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Staff notifying the Company that the Company was no longer in compliance with the Nasdaq Audit Committee Requirement and that the Company had until the earlier of its 2025 annual meeting of stockholders and April 25, 2025 (i.e., one year from the date on which the Company ceased to be compliant) to regain compliance.
On June 11, 2024, Gregory Coleman, a current member of the Company’s board of directors, was appointed to the audit committee of the board. Following the Company’s notice to the Nasdaq Staff of Mr. Coleman’s appointment to the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors, the Nasdaq Staff has determined that the Company complies with the Nasdaq Audit Committee Requirement and that the matter is closed.
