PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Audacy, Inc. (NYSE: AUD) announced today that on August 1, 2022, the Company received notification from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company’s Class A common stock (the “common stock”) is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standard requiring a minimum average closing price of $1.00 per share over 30 consecutive trading days.
