SINGAPORE, June 13, 2023 /PR Newswire/ — Caravelle International Group (Nasdaq: CACO), a global ocean technology company, today announced that it received a notification letter dated June 7, 2023 (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) due to the closing bid price for the Company’s ordinary shares being below $1.00 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has 180 calendar days, or until December 4, 2023, to regain compliance. To regain compliance, the closing bid price for the Company’s ordinary shares must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten (10) consecutive business days during the compliance period ending December 4, 2023.
Should the Company not regain compliance during the initial compliance period, it may be eligible for additional time. To qualify for this, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the bid price requirement. In addition, the Company will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, potentially effecting a reverse stock split if necessary. If the Company meets these requirements, Nasdaq will inform the Company it has been granted an additional 180 calendar days to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s current listing requirements.
The Notice does not have an immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s ordinary shares, and the Company’s ordinary shares will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “CACO”. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement or maintain compliance with other Nasdaq listing standards.
