DALLAS, Oct. 07, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Speed Commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPDC), a leading provider of ecommerce technology and omni-channel solutions for retailers, has received a positive determination from the NASDAQ Stock Market granting approval of the company’s request to transfer its listing to the NASDAQ Capital Market from the NASDAQ Global Market, effective as of October 8, 2015. The NASDAQ Capital Market is a continuous trading market that operates in substantially the same manner as the NASDAQ Global Market and companies must meet certain financial and corporate governance requirements to qualify for listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The company’s shares will continue to trade on NASDAQ under the symbol “SPDC.”
As previously disclosed, Speed Commerce was notified on April 6, 2015 that it no longer satisfied NASDAQ’s $1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement for continued listing, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). On September 30, 2015, the company applied to transfer the listing of its stock from the NASDAQ Global Market to the NASDAQ Capital Market. Upon transfer to the Capital Market, the company has been granted a 180-day grace period to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s $1.00 minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance and qualify for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market, among other things, the minimum bid price per share of the company's common stock must be at least $1.00 for at least ten consecutive business days during the 180-day period ending on April 4, 2016. If the company fails to regain compliance during this 180-day period, its common stock will be subject to delisting by NASDAQ. The company has provided written notice of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during this second grace period by carrying out a reverse stock split, if necessary.
