Both companies identified the possibility of a reverse stock split to regain compliance.

Spire debuted in public markets in August 2021 following the completion of a SPAC merger. The company hit $100 million in annual subscription revenue, it announced during its fourth-quarter results, and has continued to trim its losses as it aims to be free cash flow-positive in about a year.

Momentus also debuted in August 2021 following its own SPAC merger. After a turbulent leadership transition, the company struggled to ramp up its spacecraft platforms business. It posted minimal revenue in the fourth quarter but hopes to fly multiple missions this year.

The warnings come as space company Astra seeks an extension from the Nasdaq to regain compliance after receiving a delisting warning last year.
