April 27, 2024 by No Comments

NEW YORK, April 26, 2024 — DDC ENTERPRISE LIMITED (NYSE AMERICAN: DDC) (“DAYDAYCOOK” OR THE “COMPANY”) announced today that on April 23, 2024, the Company received notice from NYSE American (the “Exchange”) that the Company currently is below the Exchange’s continued listing standards set forth in Section 1003(a)(i) of the NYSE American Company Guide, which requires the Company to have stockholders’ equity of $2.0 million or more if it has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of its three most recent fiscal years. The Exchange indicated that because the Company reported stockholders’ deficit of $(222,572,936) on June 30, 2023 and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2022, the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(i) of the Company Guide. The Exchange staff also determined that the Company is also not currently eligible for any exemption in Section 1003(a) of the Company Guide from the stockholders’ equity requirements, and requested that the Company submit a plan of compliance (the “Plan”) by May 23, 2024, addressing how it intends to regain compliance by October 23, 2025. If the Company does not submit the Plan or if the Plan is not accepted, the Company will be subject to delisting procedures. If the Plan is accepted by the Exchange, the Company will be subject to periodic reviews including quarterly monitoring for compliance with the Plan. Furthermore, if the Plan is accepted but the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards by October 23, 2025 or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the Plan during the Plan period, Exchange staff will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate. The Company may appeal a staff delisting determination in accordance with Section 1010 and Part 12 of the Company Guide. The Company is currently working to provide the Exchange with a satisfactory Plan by May 23, 2024. Until the Company has regained compliance with all applicable continued listing standards, the Company will continue to be included in the list of NYSE American noncompliant issuers, and the below compliance (“BC”) indicator will continue to be disseminated with the Company’s ticker symbol. In the interim, the Company’s Class A Ordinary Shares will continue to be listed on the NYSE American while it attempts to regain compliance with the listing standards, subject to the Company’s compliance with other continued listing requirements. The NYSE American notification does not affect the Company’s business operations or its reporting obligations under the Securities and Exchange Commission regulations and rules.
