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

 

On May 24, 2019, Nxt-ID, Inc. (the “Company”), received notice from the Listing Qualifications staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, based on the previous 30 consecutive business days, the Company’s listed security no longer met the minimum $1 bid price per share requirement. In accordance with its Listing Rules, Nasdaq granted the Company 180 calendar days, or until November 20, 2019 to regain compliance. In order to regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), must be at least $1 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during this 180-day period. The Company’s Common Stock has not regained compliance with the minimum $1 bid price per share requirement as of that date. By letter dated November 14, 2019, the Company requested an extension of an additional 180 days in which to regain compliance.

 

On November 21, 2019, the Company received notice from Nasdaq indicating that, while the Company has not regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, staff of Nasdaq has determined that the Company is eligible for an additional 180-day period, or until May 18, 2020, to regain compliance. Staff’s determination was based on (i) our meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of our publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and (ii) our providing written notice to Nasdaq of our intent to cure the deficiency during this second compliance period, if necessary by effecting a reverse stock split. If at any time during this second 180-day period the closing bid price of the Company’s Common Stock is at least $1 per share for at least a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq staff have stated they will provide written confirmation of compliance. If compliance cannot be demonstrated by May 18, 2020, Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the Company’s securities will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal staff’s determination to a hearings panel. We can give no assurance that the Company will regain or demonstrate compliance by May 18, 2020.
