NewAge, Inc. Announces That Its Common Stock Has Ceased Trading on Nasdaq
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewAge, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced that its common stock has been suspended from trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market due to its voluntary filing for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code on August 30, 2022 and the Company’s inability to remain compliant with the listing requirements of The Nasdaq Stock Market. As previously disclosed, the Company does not intend to appeal the suspension and anticipated delisting of its stock from The Nasdaq Stock Market. Effective September 8, 2022, the Company's common stock is expected to begin trading on the OTC Market under the trading symbol "NBEVQ." Investors can find information on the OTC Market and its various tiers at www.otcmarkets.com.
The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s common stock during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s common stock bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s common stock in the Chapter 11 case. The Company can provide no assurance that its common stock will commence or continue to trade on the OTC Market, whether broker-dealers will continue to provide public quotes of the Company's common stock on the OTC Market, whether the trading volume of the Company's common stock will be sufficient to provide for an efficient trading market or whether quotes for the Company's common stock will continue on the OTC Market in the future. The Company’s common stock may be or may become illiquid.
