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

 

On November 1, 2023, Seelos Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice (the “First Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, for the last thirty consecutive business days, 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 under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (“Rule 5550(a)(2)”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until April 29, 2024, to regain compliance. The First Notice states that the Nasdaq staff will provide written confirmation that the Company has achieved compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) if at any time before April 29, 2024, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.

 

In addition, on November 2, 2023, the Company received written notice (the “Second Notice” and, together with the First Notice, the “Notices”) from Nasdaq indicating that, for the last thirty-two consecutive business days, the market value of the Company’s listed securities has been below the minimum requirement of $35 million for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(2) (“Rule 5550(b)(2)”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(C), the Company has been provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until April 30, 2024, to regain compliance. The Second Notice states that the Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance with Rule 5550(b)(2) if at any time before April 30, 2024, the market value of the Company’s common stock closes at $35 million or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.

 

The Notices have no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock and the common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “SEEL.”

 

If the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) by April 29, 2024, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period. 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, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and would need to provide written notice to Nasdaq of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. However, if it appears to the Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, Nasdaq would notify the Company that its securities will be subject to delisting. Additionally, if the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(b)(2) by April 30, 2024, the Company will receive written notification that its securities are subject to delisting. In the event the Company receives any such notification, the Company may appeal the Nasdaq staff’s determination to delist its securities, but there can be no assurance the Nasdaq staff would grant any request for continued listing.

 

The Company intends to monitor the bid price and market value 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 Nasdaq’s minimum bid price rule by April 29, 2024, or the minimum market value of listed securities rule by April 30, 2024, which may include, among other options, effectuating a reverse stock split. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price rule or Nasdaq’s minimum market value of listed securities rule or that the Company will otherwise be in compliance with the other listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market.

 

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 the minimum market value of listed securities requirement during any compliance period or otherwise in the future, otherwise meet Nasdaq compliance standards, or that Nasdaq will grant the Company any relief from delisting as necessary or whether the Company can agree to or ultimately meet applicable Nasdaq requirements for any such relief. 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.
