NEW YORK, March 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voltari Corporation (Nasdaq:VLTC) announced today that it has extended the expiration date of its previously announced rights offering to purchase up to an aggregate of 4.3 million shares of the Company's common stock from 5:00 p.m. New York City time on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on Friday, March 20, 2015.
On March 17, 2015, the Company received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") notifying the Company that for the preceding 30 consecutive business days, the Company's common stock did not maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share, as required by NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock and the common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "VLTC."
NASDAQ stated in its letter that in accordance with the NASDAQ Listing Rules, the Company will be provided 180 calendar days, or until September 14, 2015, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. If at any time before September 14, 2015 the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, the NASDAQ staff will provide the Company with written notification that it has achieved compliance with the minimum bid requirement.
If the Company does not regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement by September 14, 2015, the Company may be eligible for additional time to comply with the minimum bid price requirement. In order to be eligible for such additional time, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The NASDAQ Capital Market, and must notify NASDAQ in writing of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period. However, if it appears to NASDAQ that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is not otherwise eligible for additional time, the NASDAQ staff will provide the Company with written notification that its common stock will be subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market.
The Company is considering available options to resolve this listing deficiency and to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. The Company has not made any such determination at this time.
