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


On October 8, 2018, Sharing Economy International Inc. (the “Company”) received a staff deficiency notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) informing the Company that it has failed to comply with Nasdaq’s shareholder approval requirements set forth in Listing Rule 5635(c) (the “Rule”). During the period from May 11, 2017 to date, the Company entered into approximately one hundred arrangements resulting in the issuance or potential issuance of more than three million shares to officers, directors, employees, and consultants (“Equity Compensation Grants”). The Company did not receive shareholder approval for the Equity Compensation Grants, and the shares were not issued from a shareholder approval equity compensation plan. The Company is continuing to review its internal records relating to prior issuances, and as information becomes available regarding any shares issued in similar circumstances, the Company will notify Nasdaq.


The Company intends to submit its plan to regain compliance no later than October 26, 2018. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant an extension of up to one hundred eighty calendar days from October 8, 2018 to evidence compliance. The Company believes that it has otherwise been compliant with its filing obligations pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including making all appropriate disclosures to the marketplace. The Company is currently doing everything possible to cure its deficiencies regarding the Rule.







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.


Date: October 12, 2018 Sharing Economy International Inc.
