LEXINGTON, Mass., June 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — T2 Biosystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTOO), a leader in the rapid detection of sepsis-causing pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes, announced today that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) has granted the Company’s request for an extension until November 1, 2022, to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Rule”).
To satisfy the Bid Price Rule in accordance with the terms of the Panel’s decision, by November 1, 2022, the Company must evidence a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. If the Company is able to do so within the prescribed time period and satisfies all other applicable criteria for continued listing, the matter will be closed. During the extension period, the Company will continue to actively monitor the stock price while it considers the options available to it and to take action, if necessary and as deemed appropriate by the Company’s board, to remedy the deficiency, including potentially effecting a reverse stock split. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to timely comply with the terms of the Panel’s decision and, if it cannot, the Company’s common stock will be delisted from Nasdaq.
The Panel also approved the Company’s request to transfer its listing of common stock from The Nasdaq Global Market to The Nasdaq Capital Market tier, which transfer will take effect prior to the open of business on June 13, 2022. The transfer is not expected to have any impact on trading in the Company’s common stock, which will continue to trade under the symbol “TTOO.” The Capital Market tier operates in substantially the same manner as the Global Market tier, with both tiers requiring issuers to satisfy certain minimum financial and corporate governance criteria to qualify for continued listing on Nasdaq.
