Explanatory Note:

 

On November 29, 2021, the NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) granted Molecular Data Inc. (the “Company”) an additional 180 calendar days, or until May 23, 2022, to regain compliance with the $1.00 per share minimum required for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market pursuant to NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Price Rule”).

 

As previously reported, on May 25, 2021, the Company received a notification letter (the “Notice”) from NASDAQ advising the Company that for 30 consecutive business days preceding the date of the Notice, the bid price of the Company’s common stock had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum required for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market pursuant to the Minimum Bid Price Rule. The Company was provided 180 calendar days, or until November 22, 2021, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule. The Company was unable to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule by November 22, 2021. The NASDAQ determination to grant the second compliance period was based on the Company’s meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and other applicable requirements for initial listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and the Company’s written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.

 

To regain compliance, the bid price of the Company’s common stock must close at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days at any time during the second 180-day compliance period. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including effecting a reverse stock split. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule or maintain compliance with the other listing requirements necessary for the Company to maintain the listing of its common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

 

The Notice has no effect on the listing of the Company’s shares at this time and the Company’s common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “MKD.”
