ImmunoCellular has received a Deficiency Letter indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Part 10, Section 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (requiring stockholders' equity of $6.0 million or more if it has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its five most recent fiscal years). As of March 31, 2017, the Company had stockholders' equity of $0.4 million. The Company is required to submit a plan to the NYSE MKT by July 23, 2017 advising of actions it has taken or will take to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by December 23, 2018.

ImmunoCellular's common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE MKT while it attempts to regain compliance with the listing standards noted, subject to the Company's compliance with other continued listing requirements. The Company's common stock will continue to trade under the symbol "IMUC," but will have an added symbol of ".BC" to indicate that the Company is below compliance with the NYSE MKT's listing standards.
