Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure To Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On February 25, 2022, Remark Holdings, Inc. (“we”, “us” or “our”) received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying us that, for a period of 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of our common stock closed below the minimum of $1.00 per share required for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Rule”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), we had 180 calendar days, or until August 24, 2022, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
On August 30, 2022, we received a staff determination letter from Nasdaq indicating that we did not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule and we are not eligible for a second 180-day grace period because we did not comply with the minimum $5,000,000 Stockholders’ Equity initial listing requirement for the Nasdaq Capital Market. Accordingly, unless we request an appeal of Nasdaq’s determination, our common stock is subject to delisting.
We have appealed Nasdaq’s delisting determination to a Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) and a hearing is scheduled to be held on October 6, 2022. Our common stock will continue to be listed and traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market pending a decision by the Panel.
