Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
Notification of Failure to Comply with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1)
On November 16, 2023, Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that its stockholders’ equity, as reported in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ending September 30, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”), did not meet the minimum stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) requires companies listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market to maintain stockholders’ equity of at least $2,500,000. In the Company’s Form 10-Q, the Company reported stockholders’ equity of $1,236,558, which is below the minimum stockholders’ equity required for continued listing pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). As indicated in Nasdaq’s letter, as of November 15, 2023, the Company did not meet the alternative Nasdaq continued listing standards under Nasdaq Listing Rules.
This notice of noncompliance has had no immediate impact on the continued listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market, which will continue to be listed and traded on Nasdaq, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other continued listing requirements. Nasdaq has given the Company until January 2, 2024, to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance. If our plan is accepted, Nasdaq may grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of Nasdaq’s letter to evidence compliance.
The Company believes that it is in compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity requirement as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and plans to timely submit a plan to Nasdaq to demonstrate this compliance. However, there can be no assurance that the Company’s plan will be accepted or that if it is, the Company will be able to maintain compliance. If the Company’s compliance plan is not accepted, or if it is and the Company does not regain compliance within 180 days from the date of Nasdaq’s letter, or if the Company fails to satisfy another Nasdaq requirement for continued listing (including the requirement that the Company maintain a minimum bid price of at least $1.00 per share, with which, as reported below, the Company is not currently in compliance), Nasdaq could provide notice that the Company’s common stock will become subject to delisting. In such event, Nasdaq rules would permit the Company to appeal the decision to reject the Company’s proposed compliance plan or any delisting determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
Notification of Failure to Comply with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2)
On November 16, 2023, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department notifying the Company that because the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock was below $1.00 per share for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company did not meet the $1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement of Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
This notice of noncompliance has had no immediate impact on the continued listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market, which will continue to be listed and traded on Nasdaq, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other continued listing requirements.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until May 14, 2024 (the “Compliance Period”), to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement. If at any time during the Compliance Period, the closing bid price per share of the Company’s common stock is at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed.
The Nasdaq letter also provides that in the event the Company does not regain compliance by May 14, 2024, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company must meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards of 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. Notwithstanding the terms set forth in the Nasdaq letter, there can be no assurance that the Company will be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period to regain compliance.
If the Company meets the applicable requirements, Nasdaq will inform the Company that it has been granted an additional 180 calendar days. If, however, it appears to Nasdaq that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, Nasdaq could provide notice that the Company’s common stock will become subject to delisting. In such event, Nasdaq rules would permit the Company to appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
If the Company chooses to implement a reverse stock split, it must complete the split no later than ten business days prior to the expiration of the applicable compliance period.
