Item 3.01

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On February 23, 2024, View, Inc. (the “Company” or “View”) received a letter (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, based on the Company’s market value of publicly held shares for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer meets the requirement to maintain a minimum market value of publicly held shares of $5,000,000, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(C) (the “Listing Rule”).

The Notice provides View with a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until August 21, 2024, to regain compliance with the Listing Rule. If at any time during this grace period, the Company’s market value of publicly held shares closes at $5,000,000 or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide View with written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed. If View does not regain compliance with the Listing Rule within the grace period, the Company expects that Nasdaq would provide notice that the Company’s securities are subject to delisting.
