IRVING, Texas, Dec. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Breeze Holdings Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: BREZ) (the "Company") announced today that on November 30, 2021 it received a notice ("Notice") from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Rule") because the Company failed to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2021 (the "Form 10-Q") with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
As a result of recent guidance to Special Purpose Acquisition Companies by the SEC regarding redeemable equity instruments, the Company revisited its application of ASC 480-10-S99 on its financial statements. The Company had previously classified a portion of its common stock in permanent equity. In accordance with ASC 480-10-S99 and after discussion with the Company's management, the Company's audit committee concluded that all of its common stock should be classified as temporary equity.
On November 15, 2021, the Company filed a Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing with the SEC related to the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, in which the Company stated that it is working diligently to complete the review of the financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 as soon as possible; however, given the scope of the process for determining the appropriate treatment of the redeemable equity in accordance with ASC 480-10-S99, the Company was unable to complete and file the Form 10-Q by the required due date of November 15, 2021. The Company is working diligently to complete the Form 10-Q as soon as possible.
Under Nasdaq rules, the Company has 60 calendar days from the date 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 the Form 10-Q, or until May 23, 2022, to regain compliance.
