SAN DIEGO, March 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardion Health Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHSI) (“Guardion” or the “Company”), a clinical nutrition and diagnostics company that develops clinically supported nutritional supplements, medical foods, and medical devices, announced that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Price Rule”). On March 15, 2021, Guardion received a letter from the Office of General Counsel of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that because Guardion’s Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) had a closing bid price at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten (10) consecutive trading days, its Common Stock had regained compliance with Nasdaq’s Minimum Bid Price Rule.
On September 20, 2019, the Company received notice from Nasdaq indicating that, based upon the closing bid price of the Common Stock, the Company no longer satisfied the Minimum Bid Price Rule. The Company was afforded 180 calendar days, or until March 18, 2020, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule. Thereafter, the Company was afforded a second 180 calendar day compliance period (which 180-day period was extended due to circumstances related to COVID-19), or until November 30, 2020, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule.
The Company was unable to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule by November 30, 2020. Accordingly, on December 1, 2020, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq notifying it that its Common Stock would be subject to delisting from Nasdaq unless the Company timely requested a hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”). The Company timely requested the hearing.
Following the hearing, on January 26, 2021, the Company received written notification that the Panel had granted the Company an extension for continued listing through March 15, 2021. As referenced above, Nasdaq determined that the Company complied with the Panel’s decision and has regained compliance. Accordingly, Nasdaq has closed the compliance review.
