Item 3.01

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


Adynxx, Inc. previously announced on June 12, 2019 that (1) trading on our common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market would be suspended effective upon the open of trading on June 13, 2019, and (2) the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, or Nasdaq, intends to file a Form 25 “Notification of Delisting,” or the Form 25, with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, after all applicable Nasdaq review and appeal periods have lapsed, which will result in our common stock being formally delisted from Nasdaq.


On July 29, 2019, Nasdaq informed us of their intention to file the Form 25 with the SEC to complete the delisting. On August 1, 2019, Nasdaq filed the Form 25 with the SEC. The delisting will become effective on August 12, 2019.


Our common stock is currently quoted on the OTCQB Market tier of the OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the trading symbol “ADYX.”


As previously stated on June 12, 2019, we are diligently pursuing courses of action designed to remedy our noncompliance with Nasdaq’s initial listing requirements.


Item 3.02

Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


From May 2019 to July 2019, we issued $1.1 million aggregate principal amount of convertible promissory notes, or the Notes, to entities affiliated with Domain Associates LLC. The Notes accrue interest at a rate of 8.0% per year and mature on the first anniversary of the applicable issue date, ranging from May 2020 to July 2020.


In the event that we issue and sell shares of our preferred stock or common stock to investors in a qualified financing with total proceeds to us of not less than $5.0 million, excluding conversion of the Notes, then the outstanding principal amount of the Notes and any unpaid accrued interest will automatically convert in whole into equity securities sold in the qualified financing at a conversion price equal to the cash price paid per share for equity securities by the investors in the qualified financing.


Each issuance of Notes described above was deemed to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, in reliance upon Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as a transaction by an issuer not involving a public offering. The purchasers of the Notes in each of these transactions represented their intentions to acquire the Notes for investment only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution thereof. Appropriate legends were affixed to the Notes issued in these transactions.







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.













Dated: August 1, 2019
