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

As previously disclosed, on May 31, 2023, Venus Concept Inc. (the “Company”) received a written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq Staff”) stating that the stockholders’ equity as reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2023, was below the minimum $2,500,000 required for continued listing under Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (“Minimum Equity Requirement”).

On July 17, 2023, the Company submitted to the Nasdaq Staff a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Equity Requirement (the "Plan"). On July 28, 2023, the Nasdaq Staff granted an extension until November 27, 2023 to evidence compliance with the Minimum Equity Requirement, conditioned upon the Company’s achievement of certain milestones as set forth in the Plan.

On November 28, 2023, the Company received a written notice from the Nasdaq Staff which described its determination that the Company had not regained compliance with the Minimum Equity Requirement within the Plan period. As a result, the Nasdaq Staff advised the Company that its securities will be delisted at the opening of business on December 7, 2023, unless the Company timely requests a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Panel”).

Accordingly, the Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Panel. The hearing request will automatically stay any suspension or delisting action pending the hearing and the expiration of any additional extension period granted by the Panel following the hearing. Pursuant to the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Panel is authorized to grant, where it deems appropriate, an additional extension period not to exceed May 28, 2024. The Company remains committed to taking all reasonable measures available to regain compliance under the Nasdaq Listing Rules and remain listed on Nasdaq.
