On November 22, 2022, PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (the “Company”) received a written notification from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, for the last thirty consecutive business days, the closing bid price for the Company’s common shares had closed below the minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share listing requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Company was provided 180 calendar days, or until May 22, 2023 – in accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) – to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
On May 22, 2023, the Company received a written notification of approval from Nasdaq indicating that the Company’s request for a 180-day extension to meet the minimum closing bid price of US$1.00 per share listing requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) was approved. The Company was provided 180 calendar days, or until November 20, 2023, in accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
On October 27, 2023, the Company announced that it notified Nasdaq of its intention to voluntarily delist its common shares from Nasdaq, with the common shares continuing to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Company taking steps to have the common shares quoted on the OTCQX Best Market. Although the Company had until November 20, 2023 to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price rule, after careful consideration, the Company evaluated the benefits and costs of continuing its listing on Nasdaq and concluded that it was appropriate to voluntarily delist from Nasdaq.
