BEIJING, Oct. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Akso Health Group (NASDAQ: AHG) (“Akso Health” the “Company” or “we”), today announced that the Company has received a written notification (the “Notification Letter”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on October 26, 2022, notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Nasdaq Rules for continued listing on the Nasdaq.
Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share, and Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. Based on the closing bid price of the Company’s ADSs for the 30 consecutive business days from September 12, 2022 to October 25, 2022, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement.
The Notification Letter does not impact the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market at this time. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until April 24, 2023, to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). To regain compliance, the Company’s ADSs must have a closing bid price of at least US$1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. In the event the Company does not regain compliance by April 24, 2023, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance or may face delisting.
The Company’s business operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notification Letter. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its ADSs and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options, including, but not limited to, implementing a consolidation reverse share split of its outstanding ADSs, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
As previously disclosed, Nasdaq had notified the Company that it was delinquent in the filing of its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022 (the “20-F”). On October 27, 2022, Nasdaq notified the Company that it has accepted the Company’s plan of compliance and granted the Company an extension through January 3, 2023 to file the 20-F.
