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

 

On May 30, 2024, Graphjet Technology (the “Company”) received a notice (the “10-Q Notice”) from Nasdaq Listing Qualifications (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that as it has not yet filed its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2024 (the “Form 10-Q”), and the Company no longer complies with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing on Nasdaq (the “Rules”). The Company has 60 calendar to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance, and if such plan is accepted, Nasdaq may grant the Company an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the prescribed due date for filing the Form 10-Q, or until November 18, 2024, to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Hearings Panel.
