Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On November 29, 2018, Neuralstem, Inc. (the “ Company ”) received notification (“Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the $1.00 Minimum Bid Price requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock.
Nasdaq Listing Rules require listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share, and, based upon the closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer meets this requirement. The Notice indicated that the Company will be provided 180 calendar days, or until May 28, 2019, in which to regain compliance. If at any time during this period the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, the Staff will provide the Company with a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.
In the event the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by May 28, 2019, the Company may be eligible for additional time within which to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirements for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement) and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Company meets these requirements, the Staff will inform us that we have been granted an additional 180 calendar days. However, if it appears to the Staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, the Staff will provide notice that the Company’s securities will be subject to delisting. At that time, the Company may appeal the delisting determination to a Hearings Panel.
The Company intends to continue actively monitoring the bid price for its common stock and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report on Form 8-K to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
