On January 18th, 2024, and as detailed in the Company’s 8k filed on January 22nd, 2024, the Company received a notice (the “New Nasdaq Notice”) from Nasdaq indicating that, as a result of an additional delinquency in the timely filing of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended November 30th, 2023 (the “Third Form Form 10-Q”), as well as not having timely filed the First Form and Second Form 10-Q and Form 10-K (together with the Third Form 10-Q, the “Regular Reports”), the Company remains out of compliance with the Rule which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports with the Commission.

A statement identified by the use of forward-looking words including “will,” “may,” “expects,” “intends,” “projects,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimate,” “should,” and certain of the other foregoing statements may be deemed forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual future activities and results to be materially different from those suggested or described in this news release. Factors that may cause such a difference include risks and uncertainties including, and not limited to, our need for additional capital which may not be available on commercially acceptable terms, if at all, which raises questions about our ability to continue as a going concern; our ability to file our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 23, 2023 and/or our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended May 31, 2023 and August 31, 2023 within the period provided by Nasdaq to do so; our ability to timely submit an acceptable updated Compliance Plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing rules within the period provided by Nasdaq; whether Nasdaq will accept our updated Compliance Plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing rules; our ability to timely file our subsequent periodic reports with the SEC; our ability to maintain the listing of our common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market; current regulation governing digital currency activity is often unclear and is evolving; the future development and growth of digital currencies are subject to a variety of factors that are difficult to predict and evaluate, many of which are out of our control; the value of digital currency is volatile; amounts owed to us by third parties which may not be paid timely, if at all; certain amounts we owe under outstanding indebtedness which are secured by substantially all of our assets and penalties we may incur in connection therewith; the fact that we have significant indebtedness, which could adversely affect our business and financial condition; uncertainty and illiquidity in credit and capital markets which may impair our ability to obtain credit and financing on acceptable terms and may adversely affect the financial strength of our business partners; the officers and directors of NextPlay have the ability to exercise significant influence over the company; stockholders may be diluted significantly through our efforts to obtain financing, satisfy obligations and complete acquisitions through the issuance of additional shares of our common or preferred stock; if we are unable to adapt to changes in technology, our business could be harmed; if we do not adequately protect our intellectual property, our ability to compete could be impaired; unfavorable changes in, or interpretations of, government regulations or taxation of the evolving Internet and e-commerce industries which could harm our operating results; risks associated with the operations of, the business of, and the regulation of, Longroot and NextBank International (formerly IFEB); the markets in which we participate being highly competitive, and because of that we may be unable to compete successfully with our current or future competitors; our potential inability to adapt to changes in technology, which could harm our business; the volatility of our stock price; and that we have incurred significant losses to date and require additional capital which may not be available on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. More information about the risks and uncertainties faced by NextPlay are detailed from time to time in NextPlay’s periodic reports filed with the SEC, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, under the headings “Risk Factors”.
