Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On May 24, 2022, Plus Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) received notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that, because the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock has fallen below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer complies with the minimum bid price requirement pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Requirement”).
Nasdaq’s notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock. Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company is provided an initial compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until November 21, 2022, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days prior to November 21, 2022.
If the Company does not achieve compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement by November 21, 2022, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar days to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other Nasdaq initial listing standards, with the exception of the Minimum Bid Requirement, and provide written notice of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split if necessary. If the Nasdaq staff determines that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible for such additional compliance period, Nasdaq will provide notice that the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting. In the event the Company receives notice that its common stock is being delisted, Nasdaq rules permit the Company to appeal any delisting determination by the Nasdaq staff.
There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement or maintain compliance with the other listing requirements.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
