Celularity Inc. Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Notice Regarding Late Form 10-Q Filing

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Celularity Inc. (Nasdaq: CELU) (the “Company”), a regenerative medicine company developing placental-derived allogeneic cell therapies and advanced biomaterial products, announced today that on May 21, 2024, the Company received notification from the Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that because the Company has not yet filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 (“Q1 2024 Form 10-Q”), and because the Company remains delinquent in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (“2023 Form 10-K”), does not comply with the Nasdaq continued listing requirements which require listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Nasdaq’s notice has no immediate effect on the listing of Celularity’s common stock and warrants, which continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbols “CELU” and “CELUW”, respectively.

The Company is required to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with respect to its delinquent reports by no later than June 17, 2024, and if accepted, the Company has a maximum of 180 calendar days from its 2023 Form 10-K due date, or until October 14, 2024, to implement the plan to regain compliance. The Company intends to submit a plan to Nasdaq by no later than June 17, 2024 and will evaluate available options to regain compliance within the compliance period. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the plan, the Company will regain compliance within the compliance period, or maintain compliance with the other Nasdaq listing requirements.

The Company is working diligently to file its 2023 Form 10-K and its Q1 2024 Form 10-Q.
