Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On March 2, 2016, NASDAQ notified the Escalon Medical Corp. (the "Company") that the bid price of its listed security had closed at less than $1 per share over the previous 30 consecutive business days, and, as a result, did not comply with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Rule"). In accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company was provided 180 calendar days, or until August 29, 2016, to regain compliance with the Rule. The Company received a letter from NASDAQ dated August 30, 2016 stating that the NASDAQ staff determined that the Company did not meet the terms of the extension. The Company had previously requested an appeal of the staff's determination of the Company's failure to comply with the minimum $2,500,000 stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing. Therefore, both issues were addressed at the requested hearing with the Hearings Panel. The Company presented its plan for compliance with the NASDAQ continued listing standards on October 13, 2016. The Company's plan for compliance was unsuccessful, and on November 16, 2016 Nasdaq notified the Company that the Panel has determined to delist the Company's shares from the Nasdaq Stock Market. Suspension of trading in the Company's shares on the Nasdaq Stock Market will be effective at the open of business on November 18, 2016. The Company has filed an application to have its securities designated as trading on the OTCQB marketplace effective at the open of business on November 18, 2016.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
