CALGARY, AB, Dec. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Sundial Growers Inc. (Nasdaq: SNDL) (“Sundial” or the “Company”) today announced that it has received approval to transfer the listing of its common shares to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company had sought the transfer to take advantage of the additional 180 calendar day compliance period offered on the Nasdaq Capital Market, which will extend the period that the Company has to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement. The transfer is expected to become effective on December 15, 2020.
As previously reported, the Company was notified by Nasdaq on May 12, 2020 that the bid price for its common shares was not in compliance with the Nasdaq minimum bid price requirement. At that time, the Company had until December 28, 2020 to regain compliance. The anticipated extension will allow the Company to regain compliance if for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days before June 26, 2021 the bid price for the Company’s common shares closes at or above US$1.00 per share.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common shares and has given written assurance to Nasdaq that it will, if necessary, implement available options to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, including a reverse stock split.
