Jensyn Acquisition Corp. Receives Nasdaq Delisting Notice

Share:

Freehold, N.J., March 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:JSYN) ("Jensyn Acquisition" or the "Company"), a company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, today announced that it has received a written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that it was no longer in compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules (the "Rules').

The Company is a special purpose acquisition company ("SPAC"). Nasdaq advised the Company that a SPAC is required to complete one or more business combinations within 36 months of the effectiveness of the SPAC's initial public offering. Since the Company's registration statement became effective on March 2, 2016, it was required to complete its initial business combination by March 2, 2019. The applicable rule also provides that if the Company does not comply with the above requirement, Nasdaq will issue a Staff Delisting Determination under Rule 5810 to delist the Company's securities. Accordingly, the Nasdaq Staff has advised the Company that its securities will be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market, and unless the Company requests an appeal of such determination, its securities will be suspended at the opening of business on March 13, 2019 and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission which will remove the Company's securities from listing and registration on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Company has appealed the delisting determination, thus avoiding the proposed suspension of trading and removal from listing and registration on March 13, 2019.

As previously announced, the Company has entered into a definitive agreement with respect to a proposed business combination with Peck Electric Co. and as part of its appeal of the Staff's delisting determination has requested a hearing with a Nasdaq Hearings Panel pursuant to Nasdaq rules. The Company plans to submit a plan for regaining compliance with the business combination requirement which will demonstrate that the proposed business combination with Peck Electric Co. can be completed within 180 days of the date of the notice received from Nasdaq.
