Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

 

On June 7, 2022, Lipocine Inc. (“Lipocine” or “the Company”) received a notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) stating that the bid price of the Company’s common stock for the last 30 consecutive trading days had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing under Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

 

The NASDAQ notification letter does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company’s common stock, and the stock will continue to trade uninterrupted on the The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “LPCN”. The Rules provide the Company a compliance period of 180 calendar days in which to regain compliance. If at any time during this 180-day period the closing bid price of the Company’s security is at least $1 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, NASDAQ will provide written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.

 

If the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by December 5, 2022, the Company may be afforded a second 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The NASDAQ Capital Market, except for the minimum bid price requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to notify NASDAQ of its intent to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, which may include, if necessary, implementing a reverse stock split.

 

The Company intends to actively monitor the closing bid price for its common stock and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
