NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Astrea Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: ASAX) (“Astrea” or the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, announced that on August 30, 2022, it received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) advising the Company that the Company did not comply with NASDAQ’s Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because NASDAQ had not received the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”). NASDAQ informed the Company that it has until October 24, 2022 to submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to this delinquent report. If NASDAQ approves the Company’s plan, it has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q (or until February 20, 2023) to regain compliance.
The Company is working diligently to complete the Form 10-Q. If the Company is unable to file the Form 10-Q by October 24, 2022, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities on NASDAQ. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to file Form 10-Q by October 24, 2022, regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other NASDAQ listing criteria.
