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

On May 12, 2022, DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc. (the “Company”) received notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that, because the Company has not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 (the “10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), the Company no longer complies with the continued listing requirements under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires Nasdaq-listed companies to timely file all periodic reports with the Commission.

As previously reported by the Company in its Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, filed with the Commission on May 10, 2022, the Company was unable to file the 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 within the prescribed period because the Company’s Audit and Finance Committee, together with independent outside counsel, is conducting an investigation concerning the Company’s use of incentives to sell products to distributors in the third and fourth quarters of 2021, whether those incentives were appropriately accounted for and whether the impact of those sales was adequately disclosed in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the Commission.

This notice from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq. The Company has 60 days within which to either cure the deficiency or to submit a plan to Nasdaq showing how it intends to regain compliance. If Nasdaq accepts the plan submitted by the Company, Nasdaq can grant an extension of the grace period for shares of the Company’s common stock to remain listed for up to 180 calendar days from the 10-Q’s due date to regain compliance.

The Company intends to file the 10-Q with the Commission as soon as practicable.
