HONG KONG and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPI Energy Co., Ltd. ("SPI Energy" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SPI), a global provider of renewable energy solutions and crypto-miner hosting services for residential, commercial and utility customers, today announced that it received a notification letter (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market Inc. (“Nasdaq”) on December 12, 2018 indicating that the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(b)(3)(C) (the “Rule”) for continued listing because the market value of its publicly held shares was less than $15 million.
Normally, a company that fails to comply with the Rule would be eligible for a 180 day compliance period. However, in its November 19, 2018 decision, the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) determined to impose a Panel Monitor lasting through 2019. The Panel noted that if at any time during the monitor period the Company fails any listing standard, Nasdaq would issue a delisting determination and the hearings department would schedule a new hearing. Therefore, the Company is not eligible for the 180 day compliance period and the Panel will notify the Company of its newly scheduled hearing date in the coming days.
