Athens, Greece, November 10, 2015, Globus Maritime Limited (the “Company” or ”Globus”) (NASDAQ: GLBS), a dry bulk shipping company, announced today it has received written notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) dated November 9, 2015 indicating that because the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock for the last 30 consecutive business days was below $1.00 per share, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price continued listing requirement for the Nasdaq Global Market, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rules, the applicable grace period to regain compliance is 180 days, or until May 9, 2016.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock between now and May 9, 2016 and is considering its options, including a potential reverse stock split, in order to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Global Market minimum bid price requirement. The Company can cure this deficiency if the closing bid price of its common stock is $1.00 per share or higher for at least ten consecutive business days during the grace period. In the event the Company does not regain compliance within the 180-day grace period and it meets all other listing standards and requirements, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day grace period if it transfers to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Nasdaq Capital Market is a continuous trading market that operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market where listed companies must meet certain financial requirements and comply with Nasdaq’s corporate governance requirements.
The Company intends to cure the deficiency within the prescribed grace period. During this time, the Company’s common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the Nasdaq Global Market.
The company’s business operations are not affected by the receipt of the notification.
