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


On February 12, 2024, Goal Acquisitions Corp. (the “Company”) received a written notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that it was no longer in compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules (the “Rules”).


In the Notice, Nasdaq advised the Company that, pursuant to Rule IM-5101-2, a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”) must complete one or more business combinations within 36 months of the effectiveness of the SPAC’s initial public offering. Since the Company’s registration statement became effective on February 10, 2021, it was required to complete its initial business combination by no later than February 10, 2024. Such rule also provides that if the Company does not comply with the above requirement, Nasdaq will issue a Staff Delisting Determination under Rule 5810 to delist the Company’s securities.


The Company entered into a binding definitive agreement to close the transaction with the target company. The target company breached the definitive agreement and the Company is pursuing its legal remedies against the target company.


Accordingly, Nasdaq has advised the Company that its securities will be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market and, unless the Company requests an appeal of such determination, its securities will be suspended from trading at the opening of business on February 22, 2024 and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission removing the Company’s securities from listing and registration on the Nasdaq. The Company plans to immediately appeal the staff’s delisting determination by requesting a hearing with a Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5800 Series. The Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Panel to request additional time to complete a business combination. If timely filed, the hearing request will result in a stay of any suspension or delisting action pending the hearing.






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