Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On May 26, 2022, biote Corp. (the “Company”) received written notice (the “Notice”) from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Staff has determined that the Company has not complied with the requirements of IM-5101-2 because (i) the Company has not demonstrated that its Class A common stock complies with (a) the minimum 400 Round Lot Holder requirement in Listing Rule 5405(a)(3) (the “Round Lot Holder Requirement”) and (b) the minimum $20 million in Market Value of Unrestricted Publicly Held Shares requirement in Listing Rule 5405(b)(3)(B) (the “Market Value of Unrestricted Publicly Held Shares Requirement” and, together with the Round Lot Holder Requirement, the “Exchange Requirements”) and (ii) the Company’s warrants do not qualify for initial listing since the security underlying the warrant, the Company’s Class A common stock, does not qualify. The Notice indicated that the Company’s Class A common stock and warrants will be suspended from Nasdaq on June 6, 2022 and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission unless the Company requests a hearing before a Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) by June 2, 2022. The Company intends to timely request the aforementioned hearing with the Panel and appeal Nasdaq’s determination, which request will stay the suspension of the Company’s Class A common stock and warrants and the filing by Nasdaq of a Form 25-NSE pending the Panel’s decision.

The Company is working diligently to satisfy the Exchange Requirements. However, the Company currently has a small public float and there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to satisfy the Exchange Requirements prior to the hearing date or at all.
