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

On July 27, 2022, Dave Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, based on the closing bid price of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), for the last 30 consecutive trading days, the Company no longer complies with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”), and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the Minimum Bid Price Requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive trading days.

The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Common Stock on The Nasdaq Global Market. Pursuant to the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company has been provided an initial compliance period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Common Stock must be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days prior to January 23, 2023, and the Company must otherwise satisfy The Nasdaq Global Market’s requirements for continued listing.

If the Company does not regain compliance by January 23, 2023, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period if it elects (and meets the listing standards) to transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market to take advantage of the additional compliance period offered on that market. To qualify, the Company would be required, among other things, to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares as well as all other standards for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, and would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the bid price deficiency during the second compliance period. If the Company does not regain compliance within the compliance period(s), including any extensions that may be granted by Nasdaq, the Common Stock will be subject to delisting.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of the Common Stock and consider its available options to resolve the noncompliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, including effecting a reverse stock split. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with The Nasdaq Global Market’s continued listing requirements or that Nasdaq will grant the Company a further extension of time to regain compliance, if applicable.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “at that time,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “remain,” “seeking,” “will,” “would” or the negative of these terms and other similar terminology. Forward-looking statements in this report include statements about whether the Common Stock will remain listed on The Nasdaq Global Market and the potential the Company will seek a reverse stock split to regain compliance. These and other forward-looking statements are predictions and projections about future events based on the Company’s current expectations, objectives, and intentions and are premised on current assumptions. Actual outcomes could be materially different than those expressed, implied, or anticipated by forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to: market conditions and their impact on the Company’s trading price on The Nasdaq Global Market, the risk that the Company’s stockholders may not approve a reverse stock split, if sought by the Company, and other important factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 25, 2022 and its subsequent reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K filed with the SEC. Any forward-looking statements made by the Company in this Current Report on Form 8-K are based only on currently available information and speak only as of the date of this report. Except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws, the Company does not assume any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change.
