Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ:CIDM) Files An 8-K Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On December 12, 2018, Cinedigm Corp. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Bid Price Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, based upon the closing bid price of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer meets the requirement to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1).
Also on December 12, 2018, the Company received a letter (the “MVPHS Notice”) from the Staff indicating that, based on the market value of the Company’s publicly held shares (“MVPHS”) for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer meets the requirement to maintain a minimum MVPHS of $15,000,000, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(b)(3)(C).
Neither the Bid Price Notice nor the MVPHS Notice results in the immediate delisting of the Common Stock from the Nasdaq Global Market.
The Company actively monitors the price of the Common Stock and will consider all available options to regain compliance with the continued listing standards, which may include implementing a reverse stock split. The Company has obtained approval of a reverse stock split of its Board of Directors and its stockholders through the written consent of the majority holder of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock. The Company may elect to address the deficiency by implementing a reverse stock split if the Board of Directors determines that is the proper course of action. No decision has been made at this time.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules 5810(c)(3)(A) and (D), the Company has been provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until June 10, 2019, in which to regain compliance with the deficiencies. In order to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, the closing bid price of the Common Stock must be at least $1 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during this 180-day period. In order to regain compliance with the minimum MVPHS requirement, the MVPHS must be at least $15,000,000 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during this 180-day period. If the Company does not regain compliance with either requirement by June 10, 2019, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period provided that it meets certain continued listing standards, and provides the Staff with written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency.
