Ross Acquisition Corp II Receives NYSE Notice Regarding Delayed Form 10-Q Filing

PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ross Acquisition Corp II (NYSE:ROSS) (the “Company”) announced today that it received a notice (the “Notice”) on August 22, 2023 from the NYSE Regulation staff of the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (the “Rule”) because it has not timely filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Rule requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the SEC. The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities. However, if the Company fails to timely regain compliance with the Rule, the Company’s securities will be subject to delisting from the NYSE.

Under NYSE listing standards, the Company has six months from the due date of the 10-Q, or until February 21, 2024, to file the Form 10-Q. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-Q by February 21, 2024, it can submit an official request to the NYSE to allow the Company’s securities to continue to trade on the NYSE. If the NYSE accepts the Company’s request, then the NYSE may grant an additional six months, or until August 21, 2024, to file the Form 10-Q. However, there can be no assurance that the NYSE will accept the Company’s request or that the Company will be able to regain compliance within any extension period granted by the NYSE. The NYSE may commence delisting procedures at any time during the period that is available to the Company to complete the filing, if circumstances warrant.

As previously disclosed in its Form 12b-25/A filed on August 21, 2023, the Company requires additional time to file its Form 10-Q with the SEC. The Company is working diligently to complete its Form 10-Q. The Company intends to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable to regain compliance with the Rule.
