Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously reported, on February 17, 2022, ZW Data Action Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that its common stock (the “Common Stock”), failed to comply with the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Requirement”) based upon the closing bid price of the Common Stock for the 30 consecutive business days prior to the date of the Notice. The Nasdaq rules provided the Company a compliance period of 180 calendar days from the Notice, or until August 16, 2022, to regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2).
On August 17, 2022, the Company received another notice (the “Second Notice”) from Nasdaq indicating that, while the Company has not regained compliance with the Bid Price Requirement, Nasdaq has determined that the Company is eligible for an additional 180-day period, or until February 13, 2023 to regain compliance. According to the Second Notice from Nasdaq, the Staff’s determination was based on (i) the Company meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of its publicly held shares and all other Nasdaq initial listing standards, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and (ii) the Company’s written notice to Nasdaq of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If at any time during this second 180-day compliance period, the closing bid price of the Common Stock is at least $1 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company with written confirmation of compliance. If compliance cannot be demonstrated by February 13, 2023, Nasdaq will provide written notification that the Common Stock will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal Nasdaq’s determination to a Hearings Panel.
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.
