TEL AVIV, Israel & RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDHL) ("RedHill" or the "Company"), a specialty biopharmaceutical company, announces that on October 12, 2022, it received a letter from the Listings Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that, for the last thirty consecutive business days, the bid price for the Company's American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The Nasdaq letter is only a notification of deficiency and has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's ADSs.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until April 10, 2023, to regain compliance. The letter states that the Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) if at any time before April 10, 2023, the bid price of the Company's ADSs closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days.
RedHill's ADSs will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market, and the Company's operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notice. RedHill intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ADSs and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If the Company does not regain compliance by April 10, 2023, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day period to regain compliance, provided that the Company meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other 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.
