Urban One Gets Time from Nasdaq to File Late Financial Report

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Urban One reports that it has received an extension from the Hearings Panel of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC giving the company until Januaryim 16, 2024 to file its Form 10-Q quarterly report for the period ending September 30, 2023. As result of that filing being late, Nasdaq has begun the process of delisting Urban One stock. However, the extension gives Urban One extra time to file the report. The company says it expects to be able to file the Q3 2023 Form 10-Q on or before December 31. As TALKERS has previously reported, the late filings were the result of Urban One dismissing its previous independent registered public accounting firm BDO USA, LLP and hiring Ernst & Young LLP.
