COS COB, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (NASDAQ: CSSE) today announced it has received a notice (“The Notice”) from the Nasdaq Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on November 21, 2023 indicating that the Company is not currently in compliance with Nasdaq’s Listing Rules (“the Listing Rules”) due to the Company’s inability to timely file its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Notice does not immediately affect the listing or trading of the Company’s securities. According to Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), the Company was required to file Form 10-Q by November 14, 2023 (the “Due Date”). The Company previously reported its inability to file Form 10-Q by the Due Date in Form 12b-25 that the Company filed with the SEC on November 14, 2023.

Nasdaq has informed the Company that, under Nasdaq rules, the Company has 60 calendar days from receipt of the Notice to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Rule. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, then Nasdaq may grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of Form 10-Q, or May 20, 2024, to regain compliance. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the Company’s plan to regain compliance or that the Company will be able to regain compliance within any extension period granted by Nasdaq or maintain compliance with the other continued listing requirements outlined in the Nasdaq Listing Rules. 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 complete the Form 10-Q and anticipates filing the Form 10-Q as soon as possible.
