Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 11, 2022, DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc. (the “Company”) obtained the consent of the requisite lenders under its revolving credit facility, with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, to extend the time period for delivery of the Company’s unaudited financial statements for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022 (the “Q2 financials”) and the related certificates, from August 14, 2022 until September 30, 2022. The Audit and Finance Committee continues to work diligently with independent counsel and advisors to complete its previously announced investigation as soon as possible and the Company is working to finalize its financial statements as soon as practicable.

The Company also intends to seek the consent of the holders of certain of its other outstanding indebtedness, including the Company’s private placement notes, to extend the time period for delivery of the Q2 financials to a date no earlier than the date required for such financials to be delivered to the lenders under the revolving credit facility.

If the Company is unable to deliver the Q2 financials by the date required under its existing debt instruments (after giving effect to any applicable consents and grace periods), such failure would constitute an event of default under such debt instruments, which could also constitute a cross-default with respect to certain of the Company’s other outstanding debt agreements and which may have a material adverse effect on the Company.

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

As previously disclosed, on May 12, 2022, 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 “Q1 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), the Company was not in compliance 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. In response to that notification and pursuant to the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company submitted a plan to Nasdaq to regain compliance and set August 14, 2022, as a target date for regaining compliance. Nasdaq granted the Company an exception to the listing rules until August 14, 2022, to regain compliance. As stated in the Company’s press release dated August 4, 2022, the Company notified Nasdaq that it no longer expected that it would be able to regain compliance by August 14, 2022.

As disclosed in the Company’s Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed with the Commission on August 9, 2022, the Company remains unable to file the Q1 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 and is further unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 (the “Q2 10-Q”) for the reasons described therein.

On August 12, 2022, the Company received a notice from Nasdaq regarding its continued non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) and requesting an updated plan to regain compliance. In response, on August 13, the Company submitted an updated plan for compliance with a request to Nasdaq for additional time to demonstrate compliance with the listing rules. If approved, Nasdaq could grant a continued exception to allow the Company to regain compliance with all delinquent filings for up to 180 days from the filing deadline of the Q1 10-Q, i.e., until November 7, 2022.

Neither the August 12, 2022, notice nor the May 12, 2022, notice from Nasdaq has an immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market. The Company is working to finalize its financial statements for the Q1 10-Q and Q2 10-Q and review of internal controls and procedures, including the evaluation of any deficiencies in internal control over financial reporting, as soon as practicable.
