Rehovot, Israel, Oct. 13, 2023 — Maris-Tech Ltd. (Nasdaq: MTEK, MTEKW) (“Maris-Tech” or the “Company”), a B2B provider of edge AI accelerated video solutions for edge platforms, today announced that it has received a written notice (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), which requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share. Under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been granted a grace period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. The Notice does not immediately affect the Company’s Nasdaq listing or the trading of its ordinary shares and warrants. During the grace period, as it may be extended, the Company’s ordinary shares and public warrants will continue to trade on Nasdaq under the symbol “MTEK” and “MTEKW”, respectively.
According to the Notice, the Company has until April 8, 2024, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. The Company can regain compliance if, at any time during this 180-day period, the closing bid price of its ordinary shares is at least $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, in which case the Company will be provided with written confirmation of compliance and this matter will be closed. However, Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require the Company’s ordinary shares to maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 for a period in excess of ten consecutive business days, but generally no more than 20 consecutive business days, before determining that the Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term compliance. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance after the initial 180-day period, the Company may then be eligible for an additional 180-day compliance period if it meets 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 this case, the Company will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period.
If the Company cannot demonstrate compliance by the allotted compliance period(s), Nasdaq’s staff will notify the Company that its ordinary shares and warrants are subject to delisting.
Maris-Tech’s continued listing on Nasdaq remains a key priority for the Company. Should the situation not resolve itself over the above-mentioned timeframes, the Company intends to consider available options to cure the deficiency and regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement within the compliance period, including a potential reverse share split.
