One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:OHGI) Files An 8-K Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of ListingItem 3.01
As previously disclosed, on May 10, 2018, One Horizon Group, Inc. (the “Company”) received notice (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) indicating that the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) did not meet the continued listing requirement as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) based on the closing bid price of the Common Stock for the preceding 30 business days. The Company disclosed the Notice on that certain Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2018. The minimum closing bid price required to maintain continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market is $1.00 per share.
Under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company received a 180-calendar day grace period from the date of the Notice to regain compliance by meeting the continued listing standard of a minimum closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for 10 consecutive business days during the 180-calendar day grace period ending on November 6, 2018. During the grace period, the Company was unable to regain compliance with the minimum bid price standard.
In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), in addition to such initial grace period, the Company could be afforded an additional 180-calendar day compliance period, provided that on the 180th calendar day of the initial grace period, the Company (i) met the applicable market value of publicly held shares requirement for continued listing and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement) and (ii) notified NASDAQ of its intent to cure the minimum bid price deficiency. Prior to expiration of the initial grace period, the Company requested an additional 180-calendar day compliance period and notified NASDAQ of its compliance with the stated listing standards and its intent to cure the minimum bid price deficiency through a reverse stock split, if necessary. On November 7, 2018, the Company received a written notification from NASDAQ granting an additional 180-calendar day period, which expires on May 6, 2019, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement described above. This second 180-calendar day period relates exclusively to the bid price deficiency and the Company could be delisted during the 180-calendar day period for failure to maintain compliance with any other listing requirements that occurs during the 180-calendar day period.
There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in regaining full compliance with the NASDAQ listing standards or maintaining its listing of the Common Stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market. This could impair the liquidity and market price of the Common Stock. In addition, the delisting of the Common Stock from a national exchange could materially adversely affect the Company’s access to capital markets, and any limitation on market liquidity or reduction in the price of the Common Stock as a result of that delisting could adversely affect the Company’s ability to raise capital on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all.
