Movella Announces Notification from Nasdaq Related to Delayed Form 10-Q Filing
HENDERSON, Nev., Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Movella Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MVLA) (“Movella”), a leading full-stack provider of sensors, software, and analytics that enable the digitization of movement, announces today that it received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on November 16, 2023 stating that Movella is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) as a result of Movella’s failure to timely file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 (the “Quarterly Report”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
On November 15, 2023, Movella filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 indicating that the filing of the Quarterly Report would be delayed principally due to the ongoing review by the Audit Committee of Movella’s Board of Directors in connection with the restatements of Movella’s previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto with respect to the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2023, and June 30, 2023. The review and restatements are more fully described in Movella’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 14, 2023.
Under Nasdaq rules, Movella now has 60 calendar days (until January 16, 2024) to submit a plan to regain compliance. If Nasdaq accepts Movella’s plan, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the Quarterly Report’s original due date, which 180-day period would end on May 13, 2024, to regain compliance. Movella can regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing standards at any time before such dates by filing the Quarterly Report with the SEC and any other subsequent reports that are required to be filed during the 180-day exception period.
Movella continues to work expeditiously to conclude the review and file the Quarterly Report as soon as practicable.
The Notice has no immediate efect on the listing of Movella’s securities on Nasdaq. There can be no assurance, however, that Movella will be able to regain compliance with the listing standards discussed above.
