Item 3.01     Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

Adynxx, Inc. previously announced on May 9, 2019 the receipt of a letter, or the Notice, from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, or Nasdaq, indicating that we do not meet the requirements to (1) maintain a minimum stockholders’ equity of $5.0 million, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5505(b)(1)(A), and (2) have a minimum of 300 round lot shareholders, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5505(a)(3). On June 6, 2019, we participated at a hearing before the Hearings Panel at Nasdaq to appeal the delisting determination set forth in the Notice. On June 11, 2019, we were notified in writing by the Hearings Panel at Nasdaq that they have denied our request for continued listing on Nasdaq. As a result, trading in our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market will be suspended effective upon the open of trading on June 13, 2019. In addition, Nasdaq intends to file a Form 25 “Notification of Delisting” with the Securities and Exchange Commission after all applicable Nasdaq review and appeal periods have lapsed, which will result in our common stock being formally delisted from Nasdaq.

 

We expect our common stock to begin trading on the OTC Market’s Pink market tier at the open of trading on June 13, 2019 under our current trading symbol “ADYX.”

 

We are diligently pursuing courses of action designed to remedy our noncompliance with Nasdaq’s initial listing requirements as set forth above. However, we believe the delisting of our common stock from The Nasdaq Capital Market could impair the liquidity and market price of our common stock. Additionally, any limitation on market liquidity or reduction in the price of our common stock as a result of that delisting could harm our ability to raise capital on terms acceptable to us, or at all.
