Item 8.01. Other Events.


As previously reported, on May 23, 2023, the Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) provided a notice to Seelos Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) that the Company has not regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (“Rule 5550(a)(2)”), as the bid price for the Company’s common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. As also previously disclosed, the Staff determined that the Company was not eligible for a second 180 calendar day compliance period as the Company does not comply with the minimum $5,000,000 stockholder’s equity requirement for initial listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company had previously timely submitted a hearing request before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel, and also provided the Nasdaq Hearings Panel with a plan to regain compliance, which plan included conducting a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock if necessary to regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2).


On June 26, 2023, the Company received a letter from the Staff granting the Company a temporary exception until October 31, 2023 to regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by evidencing a closing bid price of $1.00 or more per share for a minimum of ten consecutive trading sessions.


The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and consider available options if its common stock does not trade at a level likely to result in the Company regaining compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by October 31, 2023.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) or that the Company will otherwise be or remain in compliance with the other applicable Nasdaq listing standards.  


Forward-Looking Statements


Except for the factual statements made herein, information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K consists of forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Words and expressions reflecting optimism, satisfaction or disappointment with current prospects or future events, as well as words such as “believes,” “intends,” “expects,” “plans” and similar expressions, or the use of future tense, identify forward-looking statements, but their absence does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance and actual actions or events could differ materially from those contained in such statements. For example, there can be no assurance that the Company will meet the bid price requirement or Nasdaq compliance standards during any the temporary exception period or otherwise in the future, or that the Company can ultimately meet and continue to meet applicable Nasdaq requirements. A delisting of the Company’s common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market could materially adversely affect the Company’s ability to access the capital markets and could result in a default by the Company under its outstanding debt, and any limitation on market liquidity or reduction in the price of the common stock as a result of such delisting could adversely affect the Company’s ability to raise capital on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all. Reference is also made to other factors detailed from time to time in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. The forward-looking statements contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K speak only as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the Company assumes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements to reflect changes in information, events or circumstances after the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, unless required by law.
