Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On December 13, 2022, Lucira Health, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notification letter (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company did not satisfy the requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a) (“Rule 5450(a)”) to maintain a minimum bid price of $1 per share. The Company became deficient with Rule 5450(a) as of December 13, 2022 as its closing bid price was less than $1 per share for 30 consecutive business days prior to the date of the Notice. The Notice is a notice of deficiency, not delisting, and does not currently affect the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
The Company has 180 days, or until June 12, 2023, to comply with Rule 5450(a) by maintaining a closing bid price of at least $1 per share for at least 10 consecutive business days, and the Company must otherwise satisfy the Nasdaq Global Select Market’s requirements for listing. If the Company has not been deemed in compliance prior to the expiration of the 180 day compliance period, the Company may transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market, provided that it meets the applicable market value of publicly held shares requirement for continued listing and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement) based on the Company’s most recent public filings and market information and notifies Nasdaq of its intent to cure this deficiency. Following a transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Company will be afforded the remainder of the applicable compliance period set forth in Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(ii) which provides the Company an additional 180 days’ compliance period, unless it does not appear to Nasdaq that it is possible for the Company to cure the deficiency.
The Company intends to monitor closely the closing bid price of its common stock and to consider plans for regaining compliance with Rule 5450(a), including initiating a reverse stock split. While the Company plans to review all available options, there can be no assurance that it will be able to regain compliance with the applicable rules during the 180-day compliance period, any subsequent extension period, or at all.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, about the Company that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “will,” or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions. Forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s intent or ability to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement, including initiating a reverse stock split, Nasdaq granting the Company
any relief from delisting as necessary, and whether the Company can ultimately meet applicable Nasdaq requirements for any such relief. The forward-looking statements contained in this report are based on management’s current expectations, which are subject to uncertainty, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of the Company’s control. Important factors that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements are more fully discussed in the Company’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including the risk factors described under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the SEC and other documents subsequently filed with the SEC. The forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K are based upon information available to the Company as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and while the Company believes such information forms a reasonable basis for such statements, such information may be limited or incomplete, and its statements should not be read to indicate that the Company has conducted an exhaustive inquiry into, or review of, all potentially available relevant information. These statements are inherently uncertain and investors are cautioned not to unduly rely upon these statements. Except as required by law, the Company assumes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons if actual results differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
