Tokyo Japan, Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Linkage Global Inc (the “Company” or “Linkage”), (NASDAQ: LGCB), a cross-border e-commerce integrated service company headquartered in Japan, today announced that it received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because it had not timely filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023 (the “2023 Annual Report”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires listed companies to timely file all required public financial reports with the SEC.

The Notice provides that the Company has until April 16, 2024 to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, then Nasdaq may grant the Company an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the 2023 Annual Report, or until August 13, 2024, to regain compliance. The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s securities on Nasdaq.

As previously reported by the Company in its Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, filed with the SEC on January 29, 2024, the Company was unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its 2023 Annual Report within the prescribed period. The Company is working diligently to complete the 2023 Annual Report as soon as practicable. The Company intends to file the 2023 Annual Report before the compliance plan is due on April 16, 2024, or alternatively, will submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance on or before April 16, 2024, as required by the Notice.
