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

 

On October 25, 2022, Aethlon Medical, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that for 30 consecutive trading days preceding the date of the Notice, the bid price of the Company’s common stock had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). The Notice has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time, and the Company’s common stock continues to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “AEMD.”

 

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement (the “Grace Period”), subject to a potential 180 calendar day extension, as described below. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s Common Stock must be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days within the Grace Period.

 

If the Company does not achieve compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement by April 24, 2023, the end of the Grace Period, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for the market value of its publicly held shares and all other Nasdaq initial listing standards, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period. However, if it appears to Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company does not meet the other listing standards, Nasdaq could provide notice that the Company’s Common Stock will be subject to delisting. In the event the Company receives notice that its Common Stock is being delisted, the Company would be entitled to appeal the 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 may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
