SINGAPORE, July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- EQONEX Limited (NASDAQ: EQOS) ("EQONEX" or the "Company"), a digital assets financial services company, today announced that on July 21, 2022, it received a written notice (the "Notice") from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") that the Company is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of US$1.00 per share set forth in Nasdaq Rules for continued listing on Nasdaq.
Based on the closing bid price of the Company's listed securities for the last 30 consecutive business days from June 7, 2022, to July 20, 2022, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Notice is only a notification of deficiency, not of imminent delisting, and has no current effect on the listing or trading of the Company's securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until January 17, 2023, to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). To regain compliance, the Company's common shares must have a closing bid price of at least US$1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days.
The Company's business operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notification Letter. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ordinary shares and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including, but not limited to, implementing a reverse share split of its outstanding ordinary shares, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under the Nasdaq Rules for continued listing on Nasdaq.
The Company intends to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the Listing Rules.
