Exhibit 99.1


New York, NY, May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Shapeways Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHPW) (“Shapeways” or the “Company”), a leader in the large and fast-growing digital manufacturing industry, today announced that it received a notice (the “Notice”) on May 22, 2024 from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that it is not currently in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”), which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), as a result of the Company’s failure to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 (the “Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed timeframe. The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock or publicly traded warrants.
The Notice provides that the Company has until July 22, 2024, to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Rule. If Nasdaq accepts the plan, Nasdaq may grant the Company an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q, or until November 18, 2024, to regain compliance. The Company may be able to regain compliance with the Rule by filing the Form 10-Q with the SEC (and any other reports required to be filed) before the end of any such exception period. If the Company fails to regain compliance prior to the expiration of any such exception period or if Nasdaq does not accept the plan of compliance, Nasdaq will issue a determination indicating that the Company is subject to delisting. If that occurs, the Company may request a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearing Panel to review the determination. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept such plan or grant an exception period, that any hearing would be successful, or that the Company will be able to regain compliance within the deadline or any exception period that may be granted or maintain compliance with the other continued listing standards set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
