B.O.S. Receives Compliance Notice Regarding Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
RISHON LEZION, Israel, January 20, 2012 -- B.O.S. Better Online Solutions Ltd. ("BOS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: BOSC) announced today that on January 17, 2012, it received a notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that it has failed to comply with Nasdaq’s requirement that listed securities maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rules.
BOS has a 180 days' period, until July 16, 2012, to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement. If at any time during this 180 days' period, the closing bid price of the Company’s security is at least $1 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, the Company will regain compliance.
In the event BOS does not regain compliance, the Company may be eligible for additional 180 calendar days. To qualify, 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 The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period.
Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: "We believe that 2012 financial results will be improved as compared to the results for 2011 and hope this will support our share price recovery. We have an initial 180 days' period to comply with the $1 minimum bid price and if we do not, we can apply for an additional extension, subject to meeting Nasdaq's other continued listing requirements. If we are unable to regain compliance with Nasdaq, we expect that our shares will continue to be publicly traded in the over-the-counter market."
