Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
Issuance of Press Release
 
On November 18, 2021, Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that the United States District Court, Central District of California granted the Company's motion to dismiss the consolidated class action securities complaint originally filed in September 2020 (In re Wrap Technologies, inc. Securities Exchange Act Litigation, Case No. 20-8760-DMG (PVCx)) (the "Action"), also granting the lead plaintiff leave to file a second amended complaint by December 6, 2021.
 
Classification of BolaWrap 150
 
The Company received a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ("ATF") in response to its classification request, submitted earlier this year. The response letter from the ATF informed the Company that the BolaWrap 150 will keep the same classification of the original BolaWrap 100. This classification does not change the manner of sale to the Company’s primary target market of law enforcement in the U.S. and is not expected to have an impact on sales domestically or internationally.
