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


On November 10, 2022, Kismet Acquisition Three Corp. (the “Company”) received a Staff Delisting Determination (the “Staff Determination”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that Nasdaq has initiated a process which could result in the delisting of the Company’s securities from Nasdaq as a result of the Company not being in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Listing Rule”), which requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).


As previously disclosed, on August 23, 2022, the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department notified the Company that, because the Company had not timely filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 (the “Quarterly Report”) with the SEC, the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports. The Company was provided until October 24, 2022, to submit its plan to file the Quarterly Report, however, the Company did not provide a plan for Nasdaq’s staff’s consideration.


The Staff Determination will not immediately result in the suspension of trading or delisting of the Company’s securities. The Company may appeal the Staff Determination before a Nasdaq Hearings Panel and seek a stay of any suspension or delisting action pending the hearing process in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Staff Determination Letter. A request for a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel must be submitted no later than 4:00 pm Eastern time on November 17, 2022. In that regard, unless the Company requests an appeal of the Staff Determination, trading of the Company’s units, ordinary shares and warrants will be suspended at the opening of business on November 21, 2022, and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with SEC, which will remove the Company’s securities from listing and registration on Nasdaq.


The Company has decided not to appeal the Staff Determination.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


A press release, dated November 16, 2022, disclosing the Company’s receipt of the Staff Determination letter is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
