As previously reported, on September 17, 2018, the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”) determined to continue the listing of the Company’s ordinary shares on Nasdaq, subject to the Company having, on or before November 30, 2018, completed its compliance plan and regained compliance with the minimum shareholders’ equity requirement and demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Panel that it can maintain compliance over the coming year. The Company had until November 30, 2018 to demonstrate compliance with all requirements for continued listing.

The Company filed a Report on Form 6-K (the “Report”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 28, 2018, announcing the closing of a registered offering (the “Offering”), pursuant to which it raised net proceeds of approximately $8.8 million, after deducting the estimated placement agent’s fees and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, and assuming full exercise of the pre-funded warrants issued in the Offering and excluding any proceeds from the exercise of warrants in the Offering. As a result, and as stated in the Report, the Company believed it satisfied the minimum shareholders’ equity requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market as of the date of the Report. Accordingly, the Panel has determined to continue the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq, and the previously announced delisting proceedings are now closed.
