SEATTLE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / April 14, 2020 / Aptevo Therapeutics Inc. (APVO), a biotechnology company focused on developing novel immuno-oncology therapeutics based on its proprietary ADAPTIR™ bispecific technology platform, today announced that it has received notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (NASDAQ) on April 13, 2020 informing Aptevo that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

Aptevo was previously notified by NASDAQ on April 18, 2019 that it was not in compliance with the minimum bid price rule because its common stock failed to meet the closing bid price of $1.00 or more for 30 consecutive business days.
