ROSH PINNA, Israel, April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, today announced that on April 23, 2019, it received notification from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the Company will have an additional 180 day grace period to regain compliance with Nasdaq's $1.00 minimum bid requirement.

The notification indicated that the Company did not regain compliance during the initial 180-day grace period provided under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A). In accordance with the rule, the Company is eligible for the additional grace period because it meets the initial listing requirements for the Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the bid-price requirement.

The Company can regain compliance by maintaining a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for 10 consecutive business days. If the Company does not meet the minimum bid requirement during the additional 180-day grace period, the Company still retains the option to implement a reverse stock split up to ten business days prior to the expiration date in order to timely regain compliance.

This current notification from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the company's common stock, which will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "OTIV".
