Capstone Green Energy Receives Notifications from Nasdaq Related to Delayed Annual Report on Form 10-K and Minimum Bid Price Deficiency
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Capstone Green Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: CGRN) announced that on September 12, 2023 it received a written notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (Nasdaq) notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) as a result of not having timely filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2023. The Company has also failed to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 and issued a press release on August 18, 2023 announcing that it had received written notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) as a result of not having timely filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. The written notice from Nasdaq is only a notification of deficiency, not of imminent delisting.
On September 12, 2023, the Company also received a written notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirements set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share, and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. Based on the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock between July 28, 2023 and September 11, 2023, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until March 11, 2024, to regain compliance.
Additionally, as previously reported, the Company received a written notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department notifying the Company that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company’s Market Value of Listed Securities (“MVLS”) was below the minimum of $35 million required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(2). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(C), the Company was provided a period of 180 calendar days, or until September 25, 2023, to regain compliance.
