II (NASDAQ: EDTX) (“EdtechX” or the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, announced that on March 8, 2023, it received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) advising the Company that the Company does not comply with NASDAQ’s Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because NASDAQ has not received the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”). NASDAQ has informed the Company that it has until May 8, 2023 to submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to this delinquent report. If NASDAQ approves the Company’s plan, it has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q (or until August 14, 2023) to regain compliance.
The Company is working diligently to complete the Form 10-Q. If the Company is unable to file the Form 10-Q by May 8, 2023, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities on NASDAQ. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other NASDAQ listing criteria.
