(the “Company”) received notice from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Notice”) that the Company’s stockholders’ equity as reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 does not satisfy the Nasdaq Global Market continued listing requirement set forth in Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5450(b)(1)(A) (the “Rule”).

The Company has 45 calendar days from the date of the Notice to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Rule. The Company intends to timely submit such a plan to Nasdaq. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq may grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of the Notice for the Company to provide evidence of compliance. If the plan is not accepted or the Company is not granted an extension, the Company will then consider actions appropriate to the circumstances, which may include an appeal to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel or applying to transfer the Company’s common stock listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market.
