As described in Item 5 of Part II of the Form 10-Q, for the reasons described therein the Company was out of compliance with the Rule from July 25, 2019 to October 22, 2020.


By letter dated October 27, 2020 from Nasdaq’s Listing Qualifications department (the “Letter”), Nasdaq notified the Company that based on the facts disclosed to Nasdaq in the Notice and described in the Form 10-Q, Nasdaq had determined that the Company was in violation of the Rule from July 25, 2019 to October 22, 2020, that the Company had regained compliance with the Rule effective October 22, 2020, and that subject to reporting receipt of the Letter herein the matter was now closed.
