By a letter dated May 22, 2018, (the “Notice”) the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) advised Akers Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) that the Company does not comply with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because NASDAQ has not received the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2018 (the “Quarterly Report”). NASDAQ has informed the Company that the Company is required to submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s filing requirements for continued listing within 60 calendar days of the date of the Notice. Upon acceptance of the Company’s compliance plan, Nasdaq is permitted to grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the Quarterly Report’s filing due date, or until November 19, 2018, for the Company to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1).
The Company is continuing to work diligently to complete the Quarterly Report. If the Company is unable to file the Quarterly Report within 60 calendar days of the date of the Notice, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ. This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on NASDAQ. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other NASDAQ listing criteria.
