SINGAPORE, July 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Caravelle International Group (Nasdaq: CACO), a global ocean technology company, today announced that it has received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), granting the Company an extension to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s filing requirements set forth in Listing Rule 5250(c)(1).

As previously reported, the Company received a deficiency notice from Nasdaq on May 10, 2023, due to the delay in filing its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2022. The delay in filing has been attributed to the complexities involved in transitioning from a privately held company to a public company, subject to the reporting and compliance obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Company has been working diligently with its independent registered public accounting firm to rectify this situation and has been granted an extension until August 28, 2023, to file its Form 20-F and regain compliance. If the Company files the Form 20-F on or before the extended deadline, it will be considered in compliance with Nasdaq’s filing requirements.

While there can be no assurance, based on current discussions with its auditor, the Company believes it will file the Annual Report before the August 28, 2023, deadline. However, if the Company fails to file the Form 20-F by the extension date, the Company may be subject to delisting.

The Company wishes to assure its investors that regaining compliance with Nasdaq’s filing requirements remains a top priority. The management is committed to taking all necessary steps towards the timely filing of the Form 20-F and appreciates the continued patience and support of its shareholders during this period.
