TuSimple Receives Delisting Notice from Nasdaq and Announces Appointment of New Auditor


SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- TuSimple (Nasdaq: TSP) today announced that on May 5, 2023, TuSimple Holdings Inc. (the "Company") received a notice (the "Notice") from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that, as a result of the Company not having timely filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2022 (the "Form 10-Q") and its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 (the "Form 10-K"), the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Listing Rule") and Nasdaq has determined to deny the Company's request for continued listing on Nasdaq. The Notice indicated that unless the Company appeals the delisting determination, which it intends to do, trading of the Company's common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on May 15, 2023.

The Company intends to appeal the Nasdaq's delisting determination to the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Hearings Panel") and request an extended stay of the suspension of trading of the Company's securities until the date of such hearing. Hearings are typically scheduled to occur approximately 30 to 45 days after the date of the hearing request. However, there can be no assurance that the request for a stay or appeal before the Hearings Panel will be successful or that the Form 10-Q and Form 10-K will be filed in a timely manner or at all.

On May 10, 2023, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Audit Committee") approved the appointment of UHY LLP ("UHY") as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. During the Company's two most recent fiscal years (fiscal years ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2022) and the subsequent interim period through May 10, 2023, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted UHY regarding any of the matters set forth in Item 304(a)(2)(i) or (ii) of Regulation S-K.

We believe that selecting and engaging a new independent registered public accounting firm is an important step. Now that UHY has been appointed, we expect that work on the Form 10-Q and Form 10-K will commence immediately. The Company is working expeditiously on a detailed plan to present to the Hearings Panel in an effort to regain compliance with the Listing Rule. While the Company can provide no assurance as to timing, the Company plans to file the Form 10-Q and Form 10-K as soon as practicably possible.
