|Item 3.01.||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On August 29, 2019, The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) informed Allied Esports Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) that the Company satisfied the initial listing requirements to maintain trading of its common stock on the Nasdaq market.
On August 30, 2019 the Company also received a letter from Nasdaq stating that Company’s warrants do not meet the minimum 400 round lot holder requirements required for initial listing, as set forth under Listing Rule 5515(a)(4). Trading of the warrants on Nasdaq will be suspended at the opening of business on September 10, 2019 if the Company does not appeal Nasdaq’s determination to a NASDAQ Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) by such time.
If the Company timely appeals Nasdaq’s determination, Company’s warrants would remain listed pending the Panel’s decision. There can be no assurance that if the Company does appeal such a delisting determination by Nasdaq to the Panel, that such appeal would be successful.
The delisting of the Company’s warrants will not affect the trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq market.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
