Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On December 27, 2022, Science 37 Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) received a deficiency notification letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock was below $1.00 per share for the previous 30 consecutive business days. The notification had no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has 180 calendar days from the date of such notification letter, or until June 26, 2023, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the bid price for the Company’s common stock must close at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.
This Current Report on Form 8-K is filed to satisfy the obligation under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(b) and Item 3.01(a) of Form 8-K that the Company publicly disclose the receipt of the deficiency notice within four (4) business days after the date of the deficiency letter.
If the Company does not regain compliance by June 26, 2023, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day compliance period if the Company applies to transfer the listing of its common stock to the Nasdaq Capital Market. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to provide written notice to Nasdaq of its intent to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during this second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.
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.
