Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously reported, on May 24, 2022, Plus Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice (the “Notification Letter”) from the Listings Qualifications Department of 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 complied with the minimum bid price requirement pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Requirement”). The Notification Letter stated that the Company had 180 days, or until November 21, 2022, to demonstrate its compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement.
On November 22, 2022, the Company received a second letter from Nasdaq advising that the Company had been granted an additional 180 calendar days, or to May 22, 2023, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A).
The Company intends to continue to actively monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and will evaluate available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement. Specifically, the Company has confirmed to Nasdaq that, if necessary, it will implement a reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock (if approved by the Company’s stockholders) to attempt to regain compliance. If the Company does not regain compliance within the additional compliance period, Nasdaq will provide notice that the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting. The Company would then be entitled to appeal that determination to a Nasdaq hearings panel. There can be no assurance that the Company will regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement during the 180-day additional compliance period or maintain compliance with the other Nasdaq listing requirements.
