On June 12, 2023, FOXO Technologies Inc. (NYSEAM: FOXO) (the “Company”) received an official notice of noncompliance (the “NYSE American Notice”) from NYSE Regulation (“NYSE”) stating that the Company is below compliance with Section 1003(a)(i) in the NYSE American Company Guide (the “Company Guide”) since it reported stockholders’ deficit of $(30,000) at March 31, 2023, and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2022. Section 1003(a)(i) of the Company Guide requires a listed company to have stockholders’ equity of $2 million or more if the listed company has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of its three most recent fiscal years.
The Company is now subject to the procedures and requirements set forth in Section 1009 of the Company Guide. The Company has until July 12, 2023, to submit a plan (the “Plan”) advising of actions it has taken or will take to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by December 12, 2024. If NYSE accepts the Plan, the Company will have an eighteen (18) month cure period to comply with the Plan and will be subject to periodic reviews including quarterly monitoring for compliance with the Plan. The NYSE American Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s Class A common stock on NYSE American, which will continue trading on the NYSE American under the symbol “FOXO”.
The Company intends to consider available options to regain compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement, but no decisions have been made at this time. There can be no assurance that the Company will ultimately regain compliance with all applicable NYSE American listing standards.

Any such forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of the Company’s management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond the Company’s control. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to the possibility that the Plan will not be accepted by NYSE American, the Company will be unable to satisfy other continued listing requirements of NYSE American for its Class A common stock to maintain the listing of the Class A common stock on NYSE American; the risk of changes in the competitive and highly regulated industries in which FOXO operates; variations in operating performance across competitors or changes in laws and regulations affecting FOXO’s business; the ability to implement FOXO’s business plans, forecasts, and other expectations; the ability to obtain financing; the risk that FOXO has a history of losses and may not achieve or maintain profitability in the future; potential inability of FOXO to establish or maintain relationships required to advance its goals or to achieve its commercialization and development plans; the enforceability of FOXO’s intellectual property, including its patents and the potential infringement on the intellectual property rights of others; and the risk of downturns and a changing regulatory landscape in the highly competitive biotechnology industry or in the markets or industries in which FOXO operates, including the highly regulated insurance industry. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Readers should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties discussed in FOXO’s most recent reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, particularly the “Risk Factors” sections of those reports, and in other documents FOXO has filed, or will file, with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
