Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On September 8, 2015, ChinaNet Online Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ”). NASDAQ indicated in its letter that, based upon the closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company no longer meets the requirement set forth in Listing Rule 5550, which requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share.
According to the Listing Rule 5810, the Company now has a period of 180 calendar days from such letter, or until March 7, 2016, to regain compliance. Compliance can be achieved by meeting the standard of a minimum bid price of $1 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days at any time during the 180 day period. The Company is currently looking at all of the options available with respect to regaining such compliance.
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 hereunto duly authorized.
