Nasdaq Deficiency

On April 11, 2023, the Company received a notice of deficiency (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”). The non-compliance cited by Nasdaq in the Notice is the result of the previously announced departure of Mr. Alan Gaines from his position on the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors. With the departure of Mr. Gaines, the Company is currently not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) requiring three independent members on its audit committee.

The Notice indicated that, consistent with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(4), Nasdaq will provide the Company a cure period (i) until the earlier of the Company’s next annual shareholders’ meeting or March 15, 2024, or (ii) if the next annual meeting is held before September 11, 2023, then until no later than September 11, 2023, in order to regain compliance (the “Cure Period”). The Company is actively searching for an additional independent director for its audit committee and expects to fill the current vacancy and appoint a third independent director to the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors as soon as possible and within the Cure Period.
