Bioblast Regains Compliance with NASDAQ Minimum Bid Price Requirement
On October 10, 2017, Bioblast Pharma Ltd. (the “Company”) received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) stating that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market.
The Company had previously announced that it had received notice from NASDAQ that the bid price of its ordinary shares was below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days and, as a result, the Company was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Company was provided with 180 days, or until October 9, 2017, to regain compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
After the Company effected a 5 to 1 reverse split of its share capital on September 25, 2017, NASDAQ determined that for 10 consecutive business days from the date of the reverse split, the closing bid price of the Company’s ordinary shares was $1.00 per share or greater. Accordingly, NASDAQ informed the Company that it has regained compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) and this matter is now closed.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
