NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., November 28, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everest Consolidator Acquisition Corporation (the "Company") today announced that on November 21, 2023 it received a notice (the "Notice") from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (the "Listing Rule") as a result of the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2023 (the "Form 10-Q") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities on the NYSE. The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE's rules, the Company has six months from the original due date of the Form 10-Q, or until May 20, 2024, to file the Form 10-Q and regain compliance with the Listing Rule. The NYSE further noted that, if the Company fails to file the Form 10-Q, and any subsequent filings, within the six-month period, the NYSE may grant, in its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The NYSE Notice also noted that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.
As previously reported by the Company in its Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on November 15, 2023, the Company was unable to file the Form 10-Q within the prescribed period without unreasonable effort or expense because the Company required additional time to address the implications of its use of funds restricted for payment of the Company’s tax liabilities counter to the terms of the Trust Agreement as a result of internal resource constraints and to complete its procedures for finalizing the Form 10-Q.
The Company is continuing its efforts to complete the Form 10-Q. The Company intends to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.
