LISHUI, China, April 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmmi, Inc. ("Farmmi" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FAMI), an agriculture products supplier in China, today announced that in response to recent unprecedented turmoil in U.S. and world financial markets, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") has determined to toll the compliance periods for bid price and market value of publicly held shares ("MVPHS") requirements (collectively, the "Price-based Requirements") through June 30, 2020.
NASDAQ noted it believes that the tolling of the compliance periods will allow companies to focus on running their businesses, rather than satisfying market-based requirements that are largely beyond their control in the current environment.
Accordingly, since the Company had 107 calendar days remaining in its bid price compliance period at the time of the decision on April 16, 2020, it will, upon reinstatement of the Price-based Requirements, still have 107 calendar days from July 1, 2020, or until October 15, 2020, to regain compliance. To regain compliance with NASDAQ's minimum bid price requirement the closing bid price per share of the Company's ordinary shares need be at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the suspension or during the compliance period.
In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement by October 15, 2020, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day grace period.
