Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On August 22, 2023, Blue Water Biotech, Inc. (the “Company”) received a deficiency notice (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing standards (the “Listing Rules”) as set forth in Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) given the Company’s failure to timely file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 (the “10-Q”).
Consistent with the Listing Rules, the Company has 60 calendar days from the date of the Notice to provide Nasdaq with a specific plan to achieve and sustain compliance with the Listing Rules. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q, or until February 10, 2024, to regain compliance. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the Company’s plan to regain compliance or that, should Nasdaq accept the Company’s plan, the Company will be able to regain compliance within any extension period granted by Nasdaq. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Hearing Panel under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5815(a). If the Company fails timely to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s listing rules (including, to the extent granted by Nasdaq, any applicable extensions of time), the securities of the Company will be subject to delisting on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
The Company is working diligently to finalize and file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable, but due to the ongoing review of Company employee expenditures and the classification thereof, as previously announced in a Form 8-K filed on August 22, 2023, the Company is not currently in a position to advise when the 10-Q will be filed.
On August 28, 2023, in accordance with Nasdaq’s procedures, the Company issued a press release disclosing the receipt of the Notice from Nasdaq. A copy of the press release is included herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
