Digital Media Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: DMS) (the “Company”), a leading provider of technology-enabled digital performance advertising solutions connecting consumers and advertisers, today announced that it received notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") on March 30, 2023, indicating that the Company is not in compliance with NYSE's continued listing standards because the average closing price of the Company's common stock was less than $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.
Under NYSE rules, the Company has a period of six months from receipt of the notice to regain compliance with the NYSE minimum stock price listing requirement. The Company intends to notify the NYSE of its intent to cure the stock price deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing standards. The Company intends to consider available alternatives if the Company does not otherwise regain compliance during the cure period, including but not limited to a reverse stock split. Any such reverse stock split would be subject to board and stockholder approval.
The notice does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company's common stock from the NYSE. The Company's common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the NYSE during this cure period, subject to the Company's compliance with other NYSE continued listing standards.
