Exela Receives Nasdaq Listing Extension
IRVING, Texas, October 13, 2020 – Exela Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: XELA) (“Exela” or the “Company”) today announced that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) granted Exela’s request for an extension to evidence compliance with the $1.00 bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market (the “Rule”). In order to evidence compliance with the Rule, the Company must have a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days by February 8, 2021.
As previously disclosed, Exela received notice from the Listing Qualifications Staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC indicating that the Company no longer satisfied the Rule and was therefore subject to delisting. In response, the Company timely requested a hearing before the Panel, which request stayed any further action by the Staff. The hearing was held on September 24, 2020, and the Panel issued its decision on October 9, 2020.
“We are pleased that the Panel has provided us this extension,” said Ronald Cogburn, Chief Executive Officer, Exela. “Exela is on the road to progress as evidenced by solutions such as PCH Global and DrySign, the alliance with Mastercard/Vocalink and recent customer wins and plans to take the steps necessary to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.”
