IRVING, Texas, Nov. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exela Technologies, Inc. (“Exela” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: XELA, XELAP), a leader in business process automation, announced today that on November 13, 2023, as expected, it received a delinquency notification letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing requirements under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”) because the Company did not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2023 (the “Third Quarter 10-Q”). The notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
As previously reported by the Company in its Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 13, 2023, the Company was unable to timely file the Third Quarter 10-Q without unreasonable effort or expense by the prescribed due date for such filing, due to the recent appointment of the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm.
As previously disclosed, following the Company’s failure to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2023 (the “Second Quarter 10-Q” and, together with the Third Quarter 10-Q, the “Delinquent Reports”), the Company submitted a plan to regain compliance with the Rule (the “Compliance Plan”). As a result of this additional delinquency, Nasdaq granted an exception for the Company to submit an update to the Compliance Plan on or before November 27, 2023, including the Company’s plans to file the Third Quarter Form 10-Q. Any additional exceptions from Nasdaq to allow the Company to regain compliance with the Delinquent Reports will be limited to a maximum of 180 calendar days from the due date of the Second Quarter 10-Q, or February 5, 2024. The Company anticipates filing the Second Quarter 10-Q on or before November 27, 2023, and intends to file Third Quarter 10-Q as soon as reasonably practicable.
