MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bright Health Group, Inc. (“Bright Health Group” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BHG), today announced that on December 6, 2022, the Company received a written notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that it was not in compliance with the continued listing standard set forth in Section 802.01C of the NYSE’s Listed Company Manual, as the average closing price of the Company’s common stock was less than $1.00 per share over a consecutive 30 trading-day period ending December 2, 2022. During the cure period, the Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE, subject to the Company’s compliance with the NYSE’s other continued listing requirements. The notice does not affect the Company’s ongoing business operations or its U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements, nor does it cause an event of default under any of the Company’s debt obligations.
The Company has responded to the NYSE with respect to its intent to cure the deficiency. The Company intends to consider available alternatives, including, but not limited to, a reverse stock split, subject to stockholder approval no later than at the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders, if necessary, to regain compliance. The Company has a period of six months following the receipt of the notice to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement. Section 802.01C also provides for an exception to the six-month cure period if the action required to cure the price condition requires stockholder approval, in which case, the action needs to be approved by no later than the Company’s next annual stockholder’s meeting.
The Company may regain compliance at any time during the six-month cure period if on the last trading day of any calendar month during the six-month cure period the Common Stock has a closing share price of at least $1.00 and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month. If the Company is unable to regain compliance with the $1.00 share price rule within this period, the NYSE will initiate procedures to suspend and delist the Common Stock.
