Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(2) requires companies to maintain a minimum market value of US$50 million and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(C) provides that a failure to meet the minimum market value of listed securities requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days.

In the event the Company does not regain compliance by October 16, 2023, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance, or may face delisting.
