|Item 3.01||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On November 16, 2018, SITO Mobile, Ltd. (the “Company”) held its annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). As previously announced, Michael Durden, a former member of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) and a former member of the audit committee of the Board (the “Audit Committee”), did not stand for re-election to the Board at the Annual Meeting.
On the same date, the Company notified the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that, following the Annual Meeting and because Mr. Durden did not stand for re-election to the Board, the Company was no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A), which requires that the audit committee of a listed company be comprised of at least three independent directors.
On November 19, 2018, the Company received confirmation from Nasdaq noting that the Company was no longer in compliance with Nasdaq’s audit committee composition requirements as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605 (the “Notice”). The Notice also stated, among other things, that, pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(4), the Company is entitled to a cure period to reestablish compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605, which cure period will expire upon the earlier of the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders and November 16, 2019; or, if the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders is held before May 15, 2019, by May 15, 2019.
The Company is conducting a search to identify qualified candidates to fill the vacancy on the Audit Committee created by Mr. Durden’s departure, and is considering both current Board members and other individuals to fill such vacancy.
