New York, NY, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Petra Acquisition, Inc. (NASDAQ: PAIC) (the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, announced that on May 28, 2021, it received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) advising that because the Company failed to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”), the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”). Nasdaq has informed the Company that it has until July 26, 2021 to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Rule, provided that the Company will not be required to submit a plan if the Form 10-Q is filed before such date. If Nasdaq approves the Company’s plan, it has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q (or until November 22, 2021) to regain compliance.

The Company anticipates that it will file the Form 10-Q in advance of the sixty-day deadline and thereby regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing requirements. If the Company is unable to file the Form 10-Q by July 26, 2021, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other Nasdaq listing criteria. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities on Nasdaq.
