In addition to announcing the results of its Annual General Meeting, Mainz also addresses a recent notification from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC (“Nasdaq “) regarding the company’s compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. Nasdaq has informed Mainz that it is currently not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), as the closing bid price of the company’s ordinary shares was below the minimum of US$1.00 per share for 30 consecutive trading days. Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), Mainz Biomed N.V. has been granted a compliance period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the ordinary shares must be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days prior to November 25, 2024 and the Company must otherwise satisfy The Nasdaq Capital Market’s requirements for listing. If the company does not regain compliance by November 25, 2024, the company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period. If the company does not regain compliance within the allotted compliance period(s), including any extensions that may be granted by Nasdaq, Nasdaq will provide notice that the company’s ordinary shares will be subject to delisting. The company would then be entitled to appeal Nasdaq’s determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel and request a hearing.
