LumiraDx Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Notification Letter Regarding Minimum Bid Price Deficiency
LONDON, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LumiraDx Limited (Nasdaq: LMDX)(the “Company”) today announced that it has received notification (the “Notification”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market, since the closing bid price for the Company’s common shares on the Nasdaq Global Market was below US$1.00 for 30 consecutive trading days. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) requires the common shares to maintain a minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share (the “Minimum Bid Requirement”), and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that failure to meet such requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days.
The Notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common shares on the Nasdaq Global Market. Under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a period of 180 calendar days from the date of Notification, which was January 27, 2023, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement, during which time the common shares will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market. If at any time before July 26, 2023, the bid price of the common shares closes at or above US$1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Company will regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement. In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement by July 26, 2023, the Company may be eligible for an additional period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance or may be subject to delisting of the common shares from the Nasdaq Global Market.
To address the issue, the Company will continuously monitor the closing bid price of its common shares between now and July 26, 2023, and will evaluate its options to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) before such date. The Company anticipates resolving the deficiency within the compliance period.
