NEW YORK, May 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Latch, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTCH) (the “Company”), maker of LatchOS, the full-building enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, today announced that on May 16, 2023, the Company received a notice (the “Additional Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) will consider the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2023 (the “First Quarter 2023 Report”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Listing Rule”), in rendering a determination regarding the Company’s continued listing on Nasdaq.
As previously disclosed, the Company received delisting notifications from the Staff following the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended June 30, 2022 and September 30, 2022 (together, the “2022 Quarterly Reports”) and its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Annual Report”) with the SEC. The Company was unable to timely file the 2022 Quarterly Reports, the Annual Report, and the First Quarter 2023 Report due to the ongoing effort to restate the Company’s consolidated financial statements for 2019, 2020, 2021, and the first quarter of 2022 (all such interim and annual periods, the “Affected Periods”).
The Company presented its plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule (the “Compliance Plan”) at a March 23, 2023 hearing before the Panel. As set forth in the Compliance Plan, and as granted by the Panel in its decision dated April 5, 2023, the Company intends to regain compliance with the Listing Rule by filing with the SEC, on or before August 4, 2023, (i) the Annual Report, within which the Company expects to include restated financial statements for each of the Affected Periods, (ii) the 2022 Quarterly Reports, and (iii) the First Quarter 2023 Report.
The Additional Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on Nasdaq. However, if the Company fails to regain compliance with the Listing Rule by August 4, 2023, the Company’s securities will be subject to delisting from Nasdaq. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to file the Annual Report, the 2022 Quarterly Reports, and the First Quarter 2023 Report on or before August 4, 2023.
