On May 31, 2023, Nasdaq Listing Qualifications staff (“Nasdaq Staff”) issued the Company a deficiency notice citing that the stockholders’ equity as reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2023, was below the minimum $2,500,000 required for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (“Minimum Equity Requirement”).

On November 28, 2023, the Company received a written notice from the Nasdaq Staff which described its determination that the Company had not regained compliance with the Minimum Equity Requirement within the Plan period. On December 5, 2023, the Company requested a hearing, which was held on March 5, 2024 (the “Hearing”), staying any delisting pending the issuance of the Panel’s decision. At the Hearing, the Company presented a comprehensive compliance plan to regain compliance to the Nasdaq Panel and received the Panel Decision regarding the Nasdaq Listing Rules on March 20, 2024.
