Item 3.01.

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

As previously disclosed, 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 Company requested, and received, a hearing with the Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) on June 30, 2022 to appeal Nasdaq’s determination, which request stayed 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.

On July 18, 2022, the Company received the determination letter (the “Determination Letter”) from the Panel to delist the Company’s Class A common stock and warrants from Nasdaq (the “Panel’s Determination”). The Determination Letter indicated Nasdaq will suspend trading in Company’s Class A common stock and warrants effective at the open of business on July 20, 2022, and indicated that it intends to file a Form 25 NSE Notification of Delisting with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) once all applicable appeal and review periods have expired in order to effect the formal delisting of the Company’s securities from Nasdaq.

The Company believes it is already in compliance with the Round Lot Holder Requirement and additionally expects to comply with the Market Value of Unrestricted Publicly Held Shares Requirement on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. Given the foregoing, the Company intends to timely request an appeal by the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council of the Panel’s Determination in light of the fact that the Company would comply with Nasdaq’s listing requirements prior to the time the suspension of trading in the Company’s Class A common stock on Nasdaq.

Upon suspension from Nasdaq, the Company expects its securities to begin trading on the OTC Markets’ “OTC Pink Market” tier.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
