Exhibit 99.1

Evogene Reports Receipt of Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Notification
Rehovot, Israel – September 21, 2023 – Evogene Ltd. (Nasdaq: EVGN, TASE: EVGN) (the “Company”, “Evogene”), a leading computational biology company targeting to revolutionize life-science product discovery and development across multiple market segments, today reported that the Company received a letter (the “Letter”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”), indicating that the Company is currently not in compliance with Nasdaq Rule 5550(a)(2), as the Company’s closing bid price for its ordinary shares has been below $1.00 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days.
The Nasdaq Stock Market Rules provide the Company with a period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance. According to the Letter, the Company has until March 18, 2024, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. The Company will regain compliance, if at any time during this 180-day period, the closing bid price of its ordinary shares is at least $1.00 for a minimum period of ten consecutive business days, in which case the Company will be provided with a written confirmation of compliance from Nasdaq and this matter will be closed.
If the Company does not demonstrate compliance prior to the end of the 180-day period ending March 18, 2024, the Nasdaq’s staff will notify the Company that its ordinary shares will be subject to delisting.
However, the Company may then be eligible for additional time to regain compliance, of up to a further 180 calendar days, if it meets the continued listing requirement for the market value of its publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement. To be eligible, the Company will also need to provide further written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period.
It is noted that Evogene’s continued listing on Nasdaq remains a key priority for the Company. Should the situation not resolve itself over the above-mentioned timeframe, the Company intends to consider other available options to cure the deficiency and regain compliance with the minimum bid requirement within the compliance period, including potentially approving a reverse share split among other alternatives.
The Letter from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the Company’s Nasdaq listing or the trading of its ordinary shares on Nasdaq, and during the aforementioned cure period, as may be extended, the Company’s ordinary shares will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “EVGN”. It is further noted that the Letter from Nasdaq has no bearing on Evogene’s listing on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, where its ordinary shares are traded under the ticker symbol “EVGN”.
