Item 3.01

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

As previously disclosed, on February 16, 2024, Finch Therapeutics Group, Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that, based on the Staff’s review of the Company and pursuant to Listing Rule 5101, the Staff believed that the Company no longer had an operating business and was a “public shell” and that the continued listing of its securities was no longer warranted. The Company appealed the Staff’s determination with respect to its public shell status by requesting a hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Listing Panel”), which hearing took place on April 23, 2024. On May 23, 2024, the Company received a letter (the “Delisting Letter”) from the Office of the General Counsel of Nasdaq notifying the Company that the Listing Panel had determined to delist the Company from Nasdaq.

Accordingly, trading of the Company’s common stock will be suspended at the opening of trading on May 28, 2024 and, no sooner than 45 calendar days following the date of the Delisting Letter, Nasdaq will file a Form 25-NSE with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which will remove the Company’s common stock from listing and registration on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. As a result, the Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on the over-the-counter (“OTC”) market. No assurances can be provided, however, that trading of the Company’s common stock on the OTC will commence promptly, or at all, or will be maintained.


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.
