Compliance with Minimum Bid Requirement

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K of Mammoth Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on April 22, 2020, the Company received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, for the last thirty consecutive business days, the bid price for the Company’s common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Requirement”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company was provided a period of 180 calendar days in which to regain compliance.

On May 21, 2020, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq notifying the Company that it had regained compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement and that this matter is now closed.

Audit Committee Membership Requirement

Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) requires that the audit committee of a listed company be comprised of at least three members, each of whom must be “independent” as defined under Rule 5605(a)(2) and meet the criteria for independence set forth in Rule 10A-3(b)(1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as well as certain other criteria specified in Rule 5605(c)(2). As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on May 14, 2020, Jonathan H. Yellen, one of the Company’s directors, resigned on May 8, 2020. As a result of his resignation, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) currently has only two directors who meet independence requirements under the above-referenced standards. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company notified Nasdaq of Mr. Yellen’s resignation and the Company’s non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) on May 18, 2020.

As anticipated by the Company, Nasdaq responded on May 19, 2020 with a notification letter confirming the Company’s non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A). Nasdaq advised the Company that, pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(4), the Company will have until the earlier of the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders or May 8, 2021 to regain compliance, or if the next annual meeting of stockholders is held before November 4, 2020, then the Company must evidence compliance not later than November 4, 2020. In addition, the Company was informed by Nasdaq that an indicator will be broadcasted over Nasdaq’s market data dissemination network noting the Company’s non-compliance, and the Company will be included in a list of all non-compliant Nasdaq companies posted on Nasdaq’s website, specifying the reason(s) for such non-compliance, commencing five business days from May 19, 2020 until the non-compliance is cured by the Company. If the Company does not regain compliance with the audit committee requirements within the cure period, Nasdaq will be required to provide notice to the Company that the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting, at which time the Company may appeal the delisting determination.

The Company intends to add a third independent director to the Audit Committee and regain compliance with the audit committee requirements prior to the end of the cure period.
