NEW YORK, June 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Latch, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTCH) (the “Company”) today announced that on June 15, 2023, the Company received a written notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) that the Company has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”) for continued listing on Nasdaq. In order to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the Company’s common stock was required to maintain a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days. The Minimum Bid Price Requirement was met on June 14, 2023. Accordingly, in the Notice, Nasdaq stated that the matter is now closed. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to maintain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement in the future.
The Notice is unrelated to the previously disclosed notices received by the Company from Nasdaq (i) on August 11, 2022, November 14, 2022 and May 16, 2023 regarding the Company’s failure to file its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2022, September 30, 2022 and March 31, 2023, respectively, and (ii) on April 6, 2023 regarding the Company’s failure to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (collectively, the “Delinquent Reports”). As previously disclosed, the Company intends to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) by filing the Delinquent Reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, on or before August 4, 2023.
