Item 3.01      Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

On April 19, 2022, Lifeway Foods, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Nasdaq Notice”) from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that because the Company had not yet filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). The Nasdaq Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

The Nasdaq Notice states that the Company is required to submit a plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s Rule 5250(c)(1) within 60 calendar days of the date of the Nasdaq Notice. If the plan is accepted by Nasdaq, Nasdaq is permitted to grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-K to regain compliance.

 

The Company previously discussed the circumstances behind the late filing of the Form 10-K in the Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on April 1, 2022. The Company is working diligently on its plan to regain compliance and file its Form 10-K as soon as practicable.
