NewAge, Inc. Delays Filing of Annual Report on Form 10-K

March 31, 2022

SALT LAKE CITY, March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewAge, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBEV) (the “Company” or “NewAge”) today announced that although the Company filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) indicating that the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”) would be delayed and filed within 15 calendar days from the original due date (the “Extension Period”), the Company has determined that additional time will be needed to complete the Form 10-K and therefore the Company will not be able to file the Form 10-K within the Extension Period.

Although the Company has dedicated significant resources to the completion of its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for inclusion in the Form 10-K, the Company will need additional time to complete its review of the financial statements. The delay is due primarily to the material weakness previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, relating to the financial reporting of the Company’s prior acquisitions. The Company is working diligently to complete the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, and will file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable; however, no assurance can be given as to the definitive date on which the Form 10-K will be filed.

The Company expects to receive a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that as a result of the Company’s delay in filing the Form 10-K, the Company is not in compliance with the timely filing requirement for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). The notice will have no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company will issue a press release and file a Form 8-K with the SEC to announce the notification when received.
