The Crown Electrokinetics Corp. (NASDAQ: CRKN) stock price surged 52.7% despite the lack of new releases from the firm. The company’s last significant announcement was on December 7, 2022, when it urged investors to vote for the changes proposed by its management team.

Crown Electrokinetics is scheduled to hold a shareholder meeting on December 22, 2022. It has presented several proposals to its shareholders that are critical to maintaining its listing on the Nasdq Capital Market and its future operations. 

The company’s management team has taken several bold steps to steer it through a challenging macro environment, including recapitalising it to boost its balance sheet and raise adequate funds to remain operational. 

Crown Electrokinetics also decided to dual-list its shares on Upstream, a revolutionary trading app for digital securities and NFTs powered by Horizon Fintex and MERJ Exchange Limited. The company’s CEO, Doug Croxall, said they are always looking for ways to provide greater liquidity and value to their shareholders. 

The company also successfully closed a $4 million capital raise in October that would allow it to deliver its first-generation product. The funding would also give it more leeway in negotiating additional debt capital from other lenders. 

Crown Electrokinetics remains exceptionally focused on delivering its innovative window inserts to the market to generate revenues, even as recent estimates indicate that the Smart Window market will be worth $8.7 billion by 2027. 

The company has a lot going for it and seems poised for success if it can maintain its Nasdaq listing and continue executing its strategy. However, only time will tell what will happen. For now,  a lot hinges on the upcoming shareholder meeting.  

CRKN shares have fallen 96.55% this year but could rebound if the shareholders approve the company’s proposals next week.
