NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Color Star Technology Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq CM: CSCW) (the "Company", or "Color Star"), a company engaged in the businesses of providing online and offline paid knowledge services for the media, entertainment and culture industries globally, today announced on October 16, 2020, the Company received a notification letter (the "Notification") from Nasdaq Listing Qualifications advising the Company that based upon the closing bid price for the Company's ordinary shares for the past 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer met the minimum $1.00 per share Nasdaq continued listing requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Notification also stated that Under Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company would be provided 180 calendar days, or until April 14, 2021, to regain compliance with the foregoing listing requirement. To do so, the bid price of the Company's ordinary shares must close at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days prior to that date.
In the event the Company does not regain compliance by the first compliance deadline, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Company meets these requirements, the Nasdaq staff will inform the Company that it has been granted an additional 180 calendar days. However, if it appears to the Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, the staff will provide notice that its securities will be subject to delisting.
The Company provides no assurance that its ordinary shares will trade at levels necessary to regain and maintain compliance with the above-referenced bid price rule before the compliance deadline. The Company intends to continue to monitor the bid price for its ordinary shares. If the Company's ordinary shares do not trade at a level that is likely to regain compliance with the Nasdaq requirements, the Company's Board of Directors will consider other options that may be available to achieve compliance.
