(NASDAQ: MACUU) (the “Company”) announced today that it received a notice (“Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company failed to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
