PHOENIX, Feb. 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mesa Air Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MESA) (“Mesa” or the “Company”) today announced that it received a notice (“Notice”) on February 21, 2024 from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Listing Rule”) because the Company failed to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended December 31, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. The Notice states that the Company has 60 calendar days from the date of the Notice, or April 22, 2024, to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.

The Company continues to work diligently to complete the Form 10-Q and plans to file the plan or Form 10-Q well in advance of the 60-day Notice period and is expected to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.

This announcement is made in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a deficiency notification.
