Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On March 20, 2024, JOANN, Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that Nasdaq had determined to delist the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”). Nasdaq reached its decision that the Company is no longer suitable for listing pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rules 5101, 5110(b), and IM‑5101-1 as a result of the Company’s commencement of voluntary proceedings under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (“Chapter 11”) on March 18, 2024. The Company does not intend to appeal this determination.

Trading of the Company’s Common Stock will be suspended at the opening of business on March 28, 2024, and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will remove the Company’s Common Stock from listing and registration on Nasdaq.
