Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard.


As previously disclosed, on March 23, 2023, FaZe Holdings Inc. (the "Company") received a letter from the staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that the Company’s common stock no longer met the Nasdaq requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Bid Price Requirement"). The Company was provided until September 19, 2023, to regain compliance with the continued listing rules.


On September 20, 2023, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq granting the Company an additional compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until March 18, 2024, in which to regain compliance. Nasdaq granted the additional compliance period based on the Company’s continuing to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the Bid Price Requirement, and the Company’s furnishing of written notice to Nasdaq of its intent to cure this deficiency during the additional compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.


Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.


(b) As previously disclosed, on September 9, 2023, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) took action to terminate Lee Trink from his position as Chief Executive Officer of the Company, effective immediately. In accordance with the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, which require a terminated employee of the Company serving on the Board to tender his resignation from the Board concurrently with his or her termination as an employee, on September 10, 2023, the Board demanded that Mr. Trink tender his resignation from the Board. Since Mr. Trink failed to respond to that demand as required, Mr. Trink’s resignation from the Board is deemed tendered and accepted by the Board.







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.
