Item 8.01 Other Events.

On December 29, 2020, Steel Connect, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that Nasdaq approved the Company’s application to transfer from the Nasdaq Global Select Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market, effective December 29, 2020, the listing of both its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), and rights to purchase Series D junior participating preferred stock, which were distributed in connection with the Company’s tax benefit preservation plan upon its entry and are attached to newly-issued Common Stock. As a result of the transfer, the Company is no longer subject to certain quantitative requirements of the Nasdaq Global Select Market and is now subject to those of the Nasdaq Capital Market. This transfer does not affect the trading of the Company’s Common Stock, which will continue to trade on Nasdaq under the symbol “STCN.”

Additionally, as a result of the transfer, the Company will have an additional 180 calendar days, or until June 28, 2021, to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price rule, the deficiency of which the Company previously disclosed. For more information, see “Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors” in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020, filed on September 30, 2020.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
