Skillz Receives NYSE Notice Regarding Late Form 10-K Filing

LAS VEGAS, April 08, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skillz Inc. (NYSE: SKLZ) ("the Company"), the leading games platform bringing fair competition to players worldwide, today announced that, on April 2, 2024, it received a notice (the "NYSE Notice") from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, because the Company has not timely filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 (the "Form 10-K") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

The NYSE Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NYSE. The NYSE Notice informed the Company that, under NYSE rules, the Company has six months from March 15, 2024 to regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC. The NYSE further noted that, if the Company fails to file the Form 10-K within the six-month period, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The NYSE Notice also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.

As previously reported in the Company’s Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on March 14, 2024 (the "Form 12b-25"), the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K within the prescribed period because the Company requires more time to complete the procedures relating to its year-end process, including the completion of the audit of the Company’s financial statements by the Company’s independent auditors for inclusion in the Form 10-K. Subsequent to filing the Form 12b-25, the Company continued to dedicate significant resources to the completion of such procedures but was unable to file the Form 10-K by April 1, 2024, the end of the extension period provided by the Form 12b-25. The Company requires additional time to complete such procedures.

Based on currently available information and subject to the completion of the audit procedures, the Company does not expect any material change to the financial results to be included in the Form 10-K compared to the preliminary financial information reported in the earnings release the Company furnished to the SEC on the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 14, 2024.

The Company is working diligently to complete the necessary work to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable and currently expects to file the Form 10-K within the six-month period granted by the NYSE Notice; however, there can be no assurance that the Form 10-K will be filed within such period.
