HAMILTON, Mont., April 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Local Bounti Corporation (NYSE: LOCL) ("Local Bounti" or the "Company"), a breakthrough U.S. indoor agriculture company, today announced that on April 3, 2024, it received a notice (the "Notice") from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that it is not in compliance with the NYSE continued listing standards set forth in Section 802.01B of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (the "Minimum Market Capitalization Standard") due to the fact that the Company's average global market capitalization over a consecutive 30 trading-day period was less than $50 million and, at the same time, its stockholders' equity was less than $50 million.

In accordance with NYSE procedures, the Company intends to notify the NYSE that it plans to submit a plan within 45 days of receipt of the Notice advising the NYSE of definitive action it has taken, or is taking, to bring it into compliance with the Minimum Market Capitalization Standard within 18 months of receipt of the Notice (the "Market Capitalization Cure Period"). Any plan submitted by the Company to regain compliance would be subject to NYSE approval.

The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company's common stock, which will continue to trade on the NYSE during the Market Capitalization Cure Period. The Company is considering all available options to regain compliance with the NYSE continued listing standards. The Company can provide no assurances that it will be able to satisfy any of the steps outlined above and maintain the listing of its shares on the NYSE.
