Home > Press > Arrowhead Receives NASDAQ Deficiency Notice Related to Minimum Bid Price

Abstract:
Arrowhead Research Corporation (NASDAQ:ARWR) today announced that it has received a deficiency letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that based on the Company's closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company does not comply with the $1.00 minimum bid price as set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2).

Arrowhead Receives NASDAQ Deficiency Notice Related to Minimum Bid Price

PASADENA, CA | Posted on September 19th, 2009

In accordance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), Arrowhead has been provided a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain compliance by maintaining a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for 10 consecutive business days. The NASDAQ deficiency notice has no effect on the listing of the Arrowhead's common stock at this time and Arrowhead will seek to regain compliance within the grace period.

If Arrowhead does not meet the minimum bid requirement during the initial 180-day grace period, the Company will be notified by NASDAQ that its common stock will be subject to delisting. Alternatively, the Company may be eligible for an additional grace period if it meets the initial listing standards, with the exception of the bid price, for The NASDAQ Capital Market. If the Company meets the initial listing criteria, NASDAQ will notify the Company that it has been granted an additional 180 calendar day grace period.

"We continue to be optimistic about our businesses' near-term prospects and are comfortable with their development paths," said Chris Anzalone, Arrowhead's President and CEO. "The NASDAQ grace period provides a long runway to March 15, 2010 for the increase of our stock price through natural growth. Therefore, we have no immediate plans to rely on a reverse split of our stock to achieve the minimum bid price."

NASDAQ had previously implemented a temporary suspension of this listing requirement on October 16, 2008. The temporary suspension was lifted on July 31, 2009. During the period of the temporary suspension the Company was not considered to be out of compliance with this continued listing requirement.
