Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On August 21, 2019, SITO Mobile, Ltd. (the “Company”) received a written notification (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Periodic Report Requirement”) because it has not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019 (the “Filing”). The deficiency letter does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq Capital Market.
Under the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company has a period of 60 calendar days from the date of the Notice, or until October 21, 2019 (the “Compliance Date”), to regain compliance with the Periodic Report Requirement. The Company is required to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, the Company may be eligible for a second 180 calendar day period from the Filing’s due date, or until February 17, 2020. Any subsequent periodic filing that is due within the 180-day exception period must be filed no later than the end of the period. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company may appeal Nasdaq’s determination to delist its securities, but there can be no assurance that Nasdaq would grant the Company’s request for continued listing.
The Company expects to make the Filing in the near future. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the Company’s compliance plan, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Periodic Report Requirement, or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq Listing Rules.
