SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:BSDM) (the “Company” or “BSD”) announced today that on August 8, 2014, it received a letter from the NASDAQ OMX GROUP (“Nasdaq”) stating that the bid price of the Company’s common stock for the last 30 consecutive trading days had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing under Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
The Nasdaq notification letter does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company’s common stock, and the stock will continue to trade uninterrupted on the The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “BSDM.”
BSD management intends to resolve the situation to allow for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market.
BSD is provided a grace period of 180-calendar days, or until February 4, 2015, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. If at any time during the 180-day grace period, the minimum closing bid price per share of the Company’s common stock closes at or above $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, BSD will regain compliance and the matter will be closed. In the event the Company does not regain compliance within this grace period, it may be eligible to receive an additional 180-day grace period; provided that BSD meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and provides written notice of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during the second 180-day grace period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If it appears to the Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency or if the Company is not otherwise eligible for the additional grace period, the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting by Nasdaq.
