Litigation
Certain conditions may exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements are issued which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company, or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims, as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.
If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.
Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed, unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed. There can be no assurance that such matters will not materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, financial position, and results of operations or cash flows.
Compliance with Nasdaq Continued Listing Requirement
Between November 2015 and May 2018, we received four deficiency letters from Nasdaq indicating that we did not comply with certain Nasdaq continued listing requirements. Such deficiencies were later cured. However, on May 30, 2019, we received another deficiency letter from Nasdaq indicating that, based on our closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days, we did not comply with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). In accordance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company was provided with a 180 calendar day period, through November 26, 2019 (the “Compliance Deadline”), to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. On November 27, 2019, the Company received notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that based upon the Company’s continued non-compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement (as defined below), the Company’s common stock would be subject to delisting from Nasdaq (the “Staff Delisting Determination”), unless the Company timely requested an appeal hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”). The Company requested such hearing, which was held on January 23, 2020, following the Company’s implementation of a reverse stock split effective on January 7, 2020.
On February 5, 2020, the Company received a letter from the Office of General Counsel of Nasdaq informing us that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) granted the Company’s request to continue the listing of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq, subject to a “Panel Monitor” period pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5815(d)(4)(A) which expired on February 5, 2021.
