|Item 3.01||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On November 28, 2017, Zosano Pharma Corporation (the Company) received written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC (Nasdaq) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, as set forth in Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). In accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a period of 180 calendar days, or until May 29, 2018, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Companys common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during this 180-day period.
If the Company is not in compliance by May 29, 2018, the Company may be afforded a second 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. 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, except for the minimum bid price requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to notify Nasdaq of its intent to cure the minimum bid price deficiency, which may include, if necessary, implementing a reverse stock split.
If the Company does not regain compliance within the allotted compliance periods, including any extensions that may be granted by Nasdaq, Nasdaq will provide notice that the Companys common stock will be subject to delisting. The Company would then be entitled to appeal the Nasdaq Staffs determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel and request a hearing.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and consider options to resolve the noncompliance with the minimum bid price requirement. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq listing criteria.
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.
