Mangoceuticals Granted 180-Day Extension to Meet Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Requirement and Conditional Approval of Compliance with Nasdaq’s Minimum Stockholders’ Equity Requirement

Dallas, Texas, May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mangoceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGRX) (“MangoRx” or the “Company”), a company focused on developing, marketing, and selling a variety of men’s health and wellness products in the area of erectile dysfunction (ED), hair growth and hormone replacement therapies, today announced that the Company received written notification from the Listing Qualification Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) granting the Company’s request for a 180-day extension to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Company now has until October 24, 2024 to meet the requirement. On the same date, Nasdaq provided notice to the Company that based on the Company’s April 25, 2024, Current Report on Form 8-K filing, Nasdaq has determined that the Company complies with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the “Rule”) which requires companies listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market to maintain stockholders’ equity of at least $2,500,000. However, Nasdaq also advised that if the Company fails to evidence compliance with the Rule upon filing its next periodic report it may be subject to delisting.

The Company was first notified by Nasdaq of its failure to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive trading days under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) on November 1, 2023, and was given until April 29, 2024, to regain compliance. At any time during the additional 180-day extension, if the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at, or above, $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, the Nasdaq staff will provide the Company with a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.

The Company will continue to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and will, if necessary, implement a reverse stock split of its outstanding securities, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. The stockholders of the Company, at the March 25, 2024, special meeting of stockholders previously approved an amendment to our Certificate of Formation, as amended, to effect a reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding shares of our common stock, by a ratio of between one-for-two to one-for-fifty, inclusive, with the exact ratio to be set at a whole number to be determined by our Board of Directors or a duly authorized committee thereof in its discretion, at any time after approval of the amendment and prior to March 25, 2025.

If the Company does not regain compliance within the allotted compliance period, and/or if the Company does not demonstrate compliance with the Rule as of the filing of its next periodic report, Nasdaq will provide notice that the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting. The Company would then be entitled to appeal that determination to a Nasdaq hearings panel. There can be no assurance that the Company will regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement during this 180-day extension.

On May 1, 2024, the Board of Directors of the Company determined that the Company’s 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2024 Annual Meeting”) will be held on June 17, 2024, subject to extension for any comments the Company may receive on the Annual Meeting Proxy. The time and location of the 2024 Annual Meeting will be set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting to be filed with the Commission (the “Annual Meeting Proxy”).

Any stockholder proposal intended to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2024 Annual Meeting in accordance with Rule 14a-8 or pursuant to the Company’s Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) must be delivered to, or mailed to and received at, the Company’s principal executive offices at 15110 N. Dallas Parkway, Suite 600, Dallas, Texas, 75248, Attention: Corporate Secretary, on or before the close of business on May 13, 2024, which date the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and distribute its proxy materials prior to the 2024 Annual Meeting. Additionally, any stockholder who intends to submit a director nomination or who intends to submit a proposal regarding any other matter of business at the 2024 Annual Meeting other than in accordance with Rule 14a-8 or otherwise must similarly make sure that such nomination or proposal is delivered to, or mailed and received at, the Company’s principal executive offices on or before the close of business on May 13, 2024.

In addition to complying with this deadline, stockholder proposals intended to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2024 Annual Meeting must also comply with all applicable Commission rules, including Rule 14a-8, Texas law and the Company’s Bylaws. Any proposal submitted after the above deadlines will be considered untimely and not properly brought before the 2024 Annual Meeting.
