YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, Nov. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wearable Devices Ltd. (Nasdaq: WLDS) (“Wearable Devices” or the “Company”) today announced that it has received a written notice (the “Notice”) from Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, stating 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 was granted 180 calendar days to restore compliance with the minimum offering price requirement. The Notice does not have an immediate effect on the Nasdaq listing of the Company or the trading of its common stock, and during the grace period, which may be extended, the common stock of the Company will continue to be traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “WLDS”.
According to the Notice, the Company has until May 22, 2023 to again comply with the minimum bid price requirement. The Company may reinstate compliance if, at any time during such 180-day period, the closing bid price for its common shares is at least $1.00 for at least ten consecutive business days, in which case the Company will receive written confirmation of compliance and this matter will be closed. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance after the initial 180 day period, then the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 day compliance period if it satisfies the continued listing requirement for the value trading of publicly held shares and all other listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the minimum bid price requirement. In this case, the Company must provide written notice of its intention to remedy the breach during the second compliance period.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its Common Shares and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to restore compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, including by a reverse stock split. If the Company cannot demonstrate compliance within the specified compliance time(s), Nasdaq staff will notify the Company that its common stock is subject to debarment.
