Stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq beyond November 21, 2022
CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2022 / Cosmos Holdings d/b/a Cosmos Health, Inc. ("the Company") (NASDAQ:COSM), a global healthcare group with proprietary lines of nutraceuticals and distributor of pharmaceuticals, branded generics, OTC medications and medical devices, today announced that on November 10, 2022, Cosmos Holdings received a non-compliance letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market for its failure to maintain a minimum closing bid price of $0.10 per share for ten (10) consecutive business days in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(ii).
Pursuant to a prior non-compliance letter from Nasdaq dated July 26, 2022, the Company had until January 23, 2023, to regain compliance by the closing bid price of the Company's common stock being at least $1.00 per share for ten (10) consecutive trading days. The Staff has determined to suspend trading of the Company's securities on November 21, 2022 and delist the Company's securities. However, the Company has requested an appeal of the delisting determination by requesting a hearing to stay the automatic suspension of the Company's securities on November 21, 2022, and the filing of a Form 25-NSE with the SEC to remove the Company's securities from listing and registration on the Nasdaq Stock Market. Although there is no assurance, the Company expects that the shareholder proposal at its scheduled December 2, 2022, Annual Shareholders Meeting, for which a quorum has been obtained, to provide the Board of Directors with the discretion to effect a reverse stock split, will enable the Company to regain compliance with Nasdaq's minimum bid-price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
Greg Siokas, Chief Executive Officer of Cosmos Health, said, "We have requested a hearing with Nasdaq to address this issue. By virtue of that request our stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq exchange beyond November 21, 2022. We are taking all the necessary steps to remedy this situation and to maintain our Nasdaq listing for the benefit of our loyal shareholders."
