Item 8.01 Other Events.

On October 23, 2023, Applied Molecular Transport Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice from the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Nasdaq Panel”) that the Nasdaq Panel had granted the Company’s request for continued listing on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), subject to the Company’s completion of its business combination with Cyclo Therapeutics, Inc. on or before February 6, 2024.

As previously disclosed, on August 10, 2023, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq’s Listing Qualifications Staff (“Nasdaq Staff”) indicating that, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5100, the Nasdaq Staff believed the Company to be a “public shell” and, therefore, the continued listing of the Company’s securities was no longer warranted. The Company thereafter requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Panel, which request stayed any further action by Nasdaq Staff with respect to the Company’s listing pending a determination by the Nasdaq Panel. The hearing was held on October 19, 2023.


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.
