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

 

As previously disclosed on its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the U.S. Securities Commission (the “SEC”) on May 24, 2019, Nxt-ID, Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice from the staff (the “Staff”) of the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) because the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, had closed below $1.00 per share for the previous 30 consecutive business days (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). Further, as previously disclosed on its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC on November 21, 2019, the Company received notice from Nasdaq indicating that, while the Company had not regained compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the Staff had determined that the Company was eligible for an additional 180-day period, or until May 18, 2020, to regain compliance.

 

On April 17, 2020, the Company received notice from Nasdaq that the 180-day grace period to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement under applicable Nasdaq rules has been extended due to the global market impact caused by COVID-19. More specifically, Nasdaq has stated that the compliance periods for any company previously notified about non-compliance will be suspended effective April 16, 2020, through June 30, 2020. On July 1, 2020, companies would receive the balance of any pending compliance period exception to come back into compliance with the applicable Minimum Bid Price Requirement. As a result of this extension, the Company now has until August 3, 2020, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
