ToughBuilt Industries Announces Receipt of Notice from Nasdaq Regarding Late Filing of Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q

IRVINE, Calif., May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ToughBuilt Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBLT) (the “Company”) today announced that it has received a written notice (the “Notice”) on May 22, 2024, 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 (the “Form 10-Q”) and because the Company remains delinquent in filing its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the "Form 10-K"), it is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”), which requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

This Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's shares on Nasdaq. However, if the Company fails to timely regain compliance with the Rule, the Company's common stock will be subject to delisting from Nasdaq.

As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 25, 2024, the Company received a separate delinquency notification (the “Initial Notice”) from Nasdaq, advising the Company that due to the Company’s failure to timely file its Form 10-K, the Company is not in compliance with the Rule. In the Initial Notice and reiterated by Nasdaq in the May 22, 2024 Notice, the Company has 60 days, or until June 8, 2024, to submit a plan to Nasdaq to regain compliance with respect to the late Form 10-K and Form 10-Q. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, then Nasdaq may grant the Company up to 180 calendar days from the prescribed due date of its Form 10-K, or until October 14, 2024, to file the late Form 10-K and Form 10-Q to regain compliance with the Rule.

The Company intends to submit its plan to Nasdaq no later than June 8, 2024. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, then the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.

The Company is working diligently to complete its Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and will provide an update once more information is available.
