Future FinTech Group Inc. (NASDAQ: FTFT; the “Company”), a financial technology company and integrated producer of fruit-related products, today announced that on April 17, 2019, the Company received a notification letter from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications (“NASDAQ”) stating the Company was not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), due to its failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 10-K”). The NASDAQ notification letter provides the Company 60 calendar days from the date of the notification, or until June 17, 2019, to submit a plan to NASDAQ to regain compliance with the NASDAQ’s continued listing requirements. If the plan is accepted, NASDAQ can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days, or until October 14, 2019, for the Company to regain compliance. The Company may regain compliance at any time during this 180-day period upon filing its 2018 10-K, as well as all subsequent required periodic reports that are due within that period. If NASDAQ does not accept the Company’s compliance plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Hearing Panel under Listing Rule 5815(a). The NASDAQ notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company intends to provide a plan of compliance to the NASDAQ Staff on or before June 17, 2019.
