Orlando, Fla, April 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kalera Public Limited Company (“Kalera PLC” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KAL), a vertical farming company headquartered in Orlando, Florida, today announced that on April 6, 2023, it received a delisting notification from Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that Nasdaq would suspend trading of the Company’s common stock as of the opening of business on April 17, 2023.

Nasdaq’s determination was based on the following: (i) Under Listing Rule 5101, the Company is a public shell and that the continued listing of its securities is no longer warranted; and (ii) the Company has not filed its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and NASDAQ, therefore failing to comply with NASDAQ’s Listing Rule 5250(c)(2) for continued listing. In addition, since the Company’s common stock is subject to delisting, the Company’s warrants listed under symbol KALWW no longer qualify for listing under Listing Rule 5560(a). At this time, the Company does not anticipate appealing Nasdaq’s determination.

This announcement is made in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a NASDAQ delisting determination.

As previously disclosed, on April 4, 2023, Kalera, Inc. (“Kalera”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Kalera PLC, filed a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas seeking relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (“Chapter 11”).
