As previously disclosed, on September 15, 2016, the Company received a deficiency letter from Nasdaq indicating that the Company, as a result of not filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K ("10-K") on September 13, 2016, was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) of the Nasdaq Listing Rules (the "Listing Rules") for continued listing. In addition, on November 10, 2016, the Company received a second deficiency letter from Nasdaq indicating that the Company, as a result of not filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the "10-Q") by November 9, 2016, together with its prior and ongoing failure to timely file its 10-K, was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing. In the letters, Nasdaq requested that Misonix submit a plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rules by November 14, 2016.
On November 14, 2016, Misonix submitted to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rules.
