Item 3.01

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard.

 

Letter from Nasdaq dated July 23, 2020

 

On July 23, 2020 The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notified Second Sight Medical Products, Inc. (the “Company”) that it no longer meets Listing Rule 5550(b)(2) (the “Rule”) requiring the Company to maintain a minimum market value of listed securities (“MVLS”) of $35 million.  The notice was based on a review of the Company’s MVLS for the past 30 business days.  Nasdaq also noted that the Company does not meet the requirements under Listing Rules 5550(b)(1) and 5550(b)(3) which require stockholders’ equity of at least $2.5 million, or net income from continuing operations of $500,000 in the most recently completed or in two of the three most recently completed fiscal years, respectively. However, Nasdaq’s listing rules provide the Company a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until January 19, 2021, in which to regain compliance.  

 

If at any time during this compliance period the Company’s MVLS closes at $35 million or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.  In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule prior to the expiration of the compliance period, it will receive written notification that its securities are subject to delisting. At that time, the Company may appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.

 

An indicator will be displayed with quotation information related to the Company’s securities on NASDAQ.com and NASDAQTrader.com and may be displayed by other third party providers of market data information. Also, a list of all non-compliant Nasdaq companies and the basis for such non-compliance is posted on the Nasdaq website at listingcenter.nasdaq.com. The Company will be included in this list commencing five business days from the date of the Nasdaq letter.
