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

 

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 22, 2017 by Origo Acquisition Corporation (the “ Company ”), on February 21, 2017, the Company received a written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“ Nasdaq ”) stating that the Company was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(3) (the “ Minimum Public Holders Rule ”), which requires the Company to have at least 300 public holders for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. In April 2017, the Company submitted a plan to evidence compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule and Nasdaq granted the Company until August 21, 2017 to evidence compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule.

 

On August 23, 2017, the Company received a written notice from Nasdaq stating that the Company had not regained compliance with the Minimum Public Holders Rule for continued listing on Nasdaq. The notice further stated that, unless the Company requests an appeal of Nasdaq’s determination, trading of the Company’s securities will be suspended at the open of business on September 1, 2017 and Nasdaq will file a Form 25 to remove the Company’s securities from listing and registration on Nasdaq. As permitted under Nasdaq rules, the Company intends to appeal the delisting determination and the Company’s securities will continue to trade on Nasdaq while such appeal is pending.
