SDCL EDGE Acquisition Corporation Receives Notification from the NYSE of Non-Compliance with the Listing Rule to Maintain a Minimum of 300 Public Stockholders on a Continuous Basis
NEW YORK, NY, January 18, 2023 – SDCL EDGE Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) announced that, on January 12, 2023, it had received a notification letter (the “Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) informing the Company that, because the number of public stockholders is less than 300, the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01B of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (the “Listing Rule”). The Listing Rule requires the Company to maintain a minimum of 300 public stockholders on a continuous basis.
The Notice specifies that the Company has 45 calendar days to submit a business plan (the “Business Plan”) that demonstrates how the Company expects to return to compliance with the Listing Rule within 18 months of receipt of the Notice. The Business Plan will be reviewed by the Listings Operations Committee (the “Committee”) of the NYSE. The Committee will either accept the Business Plan, at which time the Company will be subject to quarterly monitoring for compliance with the Business Plan, or the Committee will not accept the Business Plan and the Company will be subject to suspension and delisting procedures.
The Notice and procedures described above have no effect on the listing of the Company’s securities at this time. The Company is already working on the Business Plan and believes that the deficiency will be cured and that it will return to compliance with the NYSE’s listing standards. The current non-compliance with the NYSE’s listing standards described above does not affect the Company’s operations or its efforts to complete a business combination once a suitable target is identified.
The Company’s ordinary shares, warrants and units, which trade under the symbols “SEDA,”“SEDA.WS” and “SEDA.U,” respectively, will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE during the cure period, subject to the Company’s compliance with the NYSE’s other applicable continued listing standards, and will bear the indicator “.BC” on the consolidated tape to indicate noncompliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards until compliance is regained.
