Nasdaq tolls compliance period for certain continued listing requirements

The SEC has declared immediately effective a Nasdaq rule proposal providing relief to listed companies that, in light of market conditions resulting from the impact of COVID-19, have fallen out of compliance with two of the Nasdaq continued listing standards.  The relief will provide companies with a longer period to regain compliance with the bid price and “market value of publicly held shares” continued listing requirements by tolling the compliance periods through June 30, 2020.  Nasdaq believes that this temporary tolling will permit companies to focus on their business operations and the health and safety of their employees, customers and communities, rather than on Nasdaq listing requirements. In addition, Nasdaq believes that temporary tolling will allow investments in these shares without concern for near-term delisting.
