Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, has announced a 1 for 9 reverse split. According to the announcement, the company plans to repurchase up to $25 million in shares through a stock buyback program after the filing of its 10-Q and upon expiration of its blackout period. In making the announcement, the company noted NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(H), which states that “if a Company fails to meet the [Minimum Bid Price requirement], compliance is generally achieved by meeting the requirement for a minimum of ten consecutive business days. However, Staff may, in its discretion, require a Company to [maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 per share] for a period in excess of ten consecutive business days, but generally no more than 20 consecutive business days, before determining that the Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term compliance. In determining whether to require a Company to meet the [minimum $1.00 bid price standard] beyond ten business days, Staff will consider the following four factors: (i) margin of compliance (the amount by which the [bid price is above the $1.00 minimum standard]); (ii) trading volume (a lack of trading volume may indicate a lack of bona fide market interest in the security at the posted bid price); (iii) the Market Maker montage (the number of Market Makers quoting at or above $1.00 and the size of their quotes); and, (iv) the trend of the stock price (is it up or down).” In the press release, Mullen Automotive CEO and chair David Michery stated: “We believe the company is highly undervalued, and the stock buyback program represents a compelling use of our capital, reflecting confidence in our business.”
