Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, is releasing results from its reconvened Special Meeting of Stockholders. The meeting, which was held on Jan. 25, 2023, included several proxy proposals on the agenda; MULN is reporting that all proposals were approved. According to the announcement, the company has no current plans to effect a reverse split. In addition, the company has until March 6, 2023, to meet the $1 minimum bid requirement established by NASDAQ. Based on the report, if that share price isn’t met, MULN will seek an extension from NASDAQ to meet the required threshold, which would give the company until approximately September 2023 to meet the threshold requirement. At that time, if the $1 minimum share price hasn’t been met, the company will then initiate a reverse stock split to maintain its NASDAQ listing compliance. The announcement noted that Mullen is also a member of the Russell 2000 Index through June of 2023, which requires a minimum stock price of $1 for inclusion. In June 2023, the index will rebalance; if the share price of MULN’s stock falls short of the $1 minimum threshold, the company will determine if a reverse stock split is in the best interest of shareholders to maintain inclusion in the Russell 2000 index.
In addition, the company announced several new hires who will be working in MULN’s commercial van and truck program and its FIVE EV Crossover programs; they will be working across the company’s facilities, including the Commercial Vehicle Team in Troy, Michigan; the Consumer Vehicle Team in Irvine, California; the Powertrain and Battery Group in Monrovia, California; the Manufacturing Plant in Tunica, Mississippi; and the Mishawka, Indiana factory. These new hires and their titles include the following:
