Safe-T expects to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement in connection with its scheduled 20:1 reverse share split
HERZLIYA, Israel, October 17, 2019 – Safe-T® Group Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: SFET), a provider of Secure Access solutions for on-premise and hybrid cloud environments, announced today that on October 11, 2019, the Company received a written notice (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), as the Company’s closing bid price for its American Depositary Shares was below $1.00 per share for the 30 consecutive business days prior to the Notice, between August 29, 2019 and October 10, 2019.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been granted a 180-calendar day compliance period, or until April 8, 2020, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. During the compliance period, the Company’s American Depositary Shares will continue to be listed and traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s American Depositary Shares must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for at least 10 consecutive business days during the 180-calendar day compliance period.
If the Company is not in compliance by April 8, 2020, the Company may be afforded a second 180-calendar day compliance period. To qualify for this additional time, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for Nasdaq with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second 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 American Depositary Shares will be subject to delisting.
On October 7, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors has approved a 20-for-1 reverse split of the Company’s share capital. The reverse split will be effective on the Nasdaq Capital Market as of market open on October 21, 2019 (due to national holiday, the first trading date for the consolidated shares on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange will be October 22, 2019). Safe-T expects to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement in connection with its scheduled reverse split, following ten consecutive trading days above $1.00.
