The Lovesac Company Announces Notification from Nasdaq Related to Delayed Form 10-Q Filing
STAMFORD, Conn., September 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The Lovesac Company (Nasdaq: LOVE) (“Lovesac” or the “Company”), the home furnishing brand best known for its Sactionals, The World’s Most Adaptable Couch, announced today that it received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on September 18, 2023 stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) as a result of the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended July 30, 2023 (the “Quarterly Report”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
On September 8, 2023, the Company filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 indicating that the filing of the Quarterly Report would be delayed due to additional time being needed to prepare a restatement to the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2023 and the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2023 (the “Restatements”). The Restatements are more fully described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 16, 2023.
Under the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company has 60 calendar days (until November 17, 2023) to submit a plan to regain compliance. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days of the Quarterly Report’s original due date, which 180-day period would end on March 6, 2024, to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, then the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
The Company is working diligently to finalize and file the Restatements and the Quarterly Report as soon as possible within the timeline prescribed by Nasdaq.
The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s securities, which will continue to trade on Nasdaq, subject to the Company’s compliance with other continued listing requirements of Nasdaq.
