Other Events

 

Nasdaq Notice of compliance with audit committee composition rule.

 

By letter dated April 7, 2021, Nasdaq notified the Company that based on the information regarding the appointment of Dr. Dean Baker to the board of directors and as a member of the audit committee, as detailed in the Form 8-K filed on April 6, 2021, Nasdaq has determined that the Company complies with applicable rules regarding audit committee composition.

 

Nasdaq had previously notified the Company, on July 15, 2021, that it did not comply with the audit committee requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market set forth in Listing Rule 5605(c)(2) (the “Rule”). Consistent with Listing Rule 5605(c)(4), the Company was provided a cure period to regain compliance until the Company’s next annual shareholders’ meeting or March 27, 2021. Thereafter, on April 5, 2021, Nasdaq notified the Company that it did not regain compliance by that date and further determined to initiate procedures to delist the Company’s securities from The Nasdaq Stock Market. Nasdaq provided the Company with the opportunity to appeal this determination. Based on the information regarding the appointment of Dr. Dean Baker to the board of directors and as a member of the audit committee, Nasdaq determined that the Company complies with the Rule, and that this matter is now closed.
