The Company has notified the NYSE of its intent to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by seeking stockholder approval at its upcoming annual meeting of stockholders on June 12, 2024 to complete a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock. Virgin Galactic filed a proxy statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2024 that contains additional details about the proposed reverse stock split.

Pursuant to NYSE rules, the Company has six months after receipt of the notice to regain compliance with Section 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual. During this period, the Company's common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the NYSE.

Virgin Galactic remains committed to its strategic focus of delivering Delta Class spaceships for commercial service in 2026 and scaling the business to deliver profitable growth and stockholder value over the long term.
