Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On March 17, 2020, Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (“we” or the “Company”) held a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”). At the Special Meeting, our stockholders voted to approve an amendment to our second amended and restated certificate of incorporation to effect, at the discretion of our Board of Directors (“Board”), a reverse stock split of our common stock at a ratio of not less than 1-for-5 and not greater than 1-for-25, with the exact ratio and effective time of the reverse stock split to be determined by the Board, as described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Schedule 14A on February 6, 2020.

Item 8.01

Other Events.

On March 17, 2020, the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) granted the Company a further extension through May 4, 2020 in which to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), which requires an issuer to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share (the “Rule”). If the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule by May 4, 2020, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) would delist the Company’s common stock from The Nasdaq Capital Market.

As previously disclosed, on November 6, 2019, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications staff (the “Staff”) of Nasdaq that, based upon the Company’s non-compliance with the Rule, the Company’s common stock would be subject to delisting from Nasdaq unless the Company timely requested a hearing before the Panel. The Company appealed Nasdaq’s determination at a hearing before the Panel, which occurred on December 5, 2019.

On December 16, 2019, the Panel granted the Company’s request for continued listing of the Company’s common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to an initial extension through April 15, 2020 or, in certain circumstances, through May 4, 2020.
