On October 3, 2019, Aethlon Medical, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that Nasdaq has granted the Company an extension of time to regain compliance with the exchange’s continued listing requirement of a minimum $2.5 million of stockholders’ equity.
This extension is conditional upon the Company completing a reverse stock split and trading at or above Nasdaq’s minimum $1.00 bid price requirement for a period of ten consecutive trading days on or before October 29, 2019. The Company is requesting stockholder approval of the reverse stock split at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on October 14, 2019 in order to meet this requirement.
If the minimum bid price requirement is met by October 29, 2019, then Nasdaq has allowed until the filing of the Company’s December 31, 2019 Report on Form 10-Q, to be filed no later than February 14, 2020, to evidence compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum stockholders’ equity threshold, subject to reporting to Nasdaq prior to that time on the Company’s fund raising progress.
