Item 8.01

Other Events.

On June 27, 2023, Finch Therapeutics Group, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Letter”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that it has regained compliance with Nasdaq’s Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Rule”).

As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 6, 2023, on December 30, 2022, the Company received a notice (the “Notice”) from Nasdaq stating that, because the bid price for the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), had for the previous 30 consecutive business days closed below the $1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement (the “Bid Price Requirement”) for continued inclusion on The Nasdaq Global Select Market, the Company was not in compliance with the Rule. The Company had a period of 180 days, or until June 28, 2023, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Requirement in accordance with the Rule.

The Letter noted that because the closing bid price of the Common Stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater over the prior 10 consecutive business days, from June 12, 2023 to June 26, 2023, the Company has regained compliance with the Rule. As a result, Nasdaq considers the matter closed.



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.
