HOBOKEN, N.J., Oct. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:LIQD), a SaaS provider of investment management solutions for the buy side, announced today that the Company’s request to stay the suspension of trading in the Company’s common stock pending the completion of its appeal of a delisting notice issued by the staff of Nasdaq has been granted. The Company’s appeal is scheduled for a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearing Panel (the “Panel”) on October 29, 2015.
At the hearing, the Company plans to present a plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq listing rules that require the Company to be current in the filing of its periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission and to request a further extension of time to file those delayed reports.
The Company’s common stock will remain listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market pending the hearing and the expiration of any extension granted by the Panel following the hearing. There can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company’s request for such extension.
As previously announced, on January 22, 2015, the Company received notice that the closing bid price for its common stock had been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days and that the Company had until July 21, 2015 to regain compliance. In connection with the transfer of the Company’s stock to The Nasdaq Capital Market, the Company was granted an additional 180 days to regain compliance with the minimum $1.00 bid price per share requirement. The new extension period runs through January 19, 2016. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to meet the bid price per share requirement prior to then.
