Mullen Automotive Starts Stock Buyback Program

an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, today announces the start of the Company’s $25 million stock buyback program with the repurchase of 3.7 million shares of common stock, which started on Aug. 16, 2023, and can continue through Dec. 31, 2023, for an aggregate of $3,626,000.

David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen also purchased 102,040 shares in the open market on Aug. 16, 2023, at a price of $0.9842 per share.

The Company is committed to taking all available measures to regain compliance with the NASDAQ minimum $1.00 bid price requirement.

NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(H) states that, “If a Company fails to meet the [Minimum Bid Price requirement], compliance is generally achieved by meeting the requirement for a minimum of ten consecutive business days. However, Staff may, in its discretion, require a Company to [maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 per share] for a period in excess of ten consecutive business days, but generally no more than 20 consecutive business days, before determining that the Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term compliance. In determining whether to require a Company to meet the [minimum $1.00 bid price standard] beyond ten business days, Staff will consider the following four factors: (i) margin of compliance (the amount by which the [bid price is above the $1.00 minimum standard]); (ii) trading volume (a lack of trading volume may indicate a lack of bona fide market interest in the security at the posted bid price); (iii) the Market Maker montage (the number of Market Makers quoting at or above $1.00 and the size of their quotes); and, (iv) the trend of the stock price (is it up or down).” For further information, please visit

The Company was noticed by Nasdaq on March 7, 2023, which stated in part that “If compliance cannot be demonstrated by September 5, 2023, Staff will provide written notification that the Company’s securities will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal Staff’s determination to a Hearings Panel.”

“We believe that our stock is undervalued. The Company has begun production of our Class 3 EV with deliveries pending to customers and a strong balance sheet allowing us to execute on our business plan,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen.

On July 6, 2023, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company authorized a stock buyback program, pursuant to which the Company may, until Dec. 31, 2023, purchase up to $25 million in shares of its outstanding common stock. The shares may be repurchased, from time to time, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions depending upon market conditions and other factors, and in accordance with applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The authorization of the stock buyback program does not obligate the Company to purchase any shares and may be terminated or amended by the Board at any time prior to its expiration date.
