The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.
On December 16, 2014, DS Healthcare Group, Inc. (the Company) received a letter from the listing qualifications department staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ) notifying the Company that for the last 30 consecutive business days the bid price of the Companys common stock had closed below $1.00 per share, the minimum closing bid price required by the continued listing requirements of NASDAQ listing rule 5550(a)(2).
In accordance with listing rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has 180 calendar days, or until June 15, 2015, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Companys common stock must be at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days (or such longer period of time as the NASDAQ staff may require in some circumstances, but generally not more than 20 consecutive business days) before June 15, 2015.
If the Companys common stock does not achieve compliance by June 15, 2015, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day period to regain compliance if it meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and provides written notice to NASDAQ of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. However, if it appears to the NASDAQ staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company does not meet the other listing standards, NASDAQ could provide notice that the Companys common stock will become subject to delisting. In the event the Company receives notice that its common stock is being delisted, NASDAQ rules permit the Company to appeal any delisting determination by the NASDAQ staff to a Hearings Panel.
The Company currently meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards of the NASDAQ Stock Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement. The Company intends to actively monitor the closing bid price of its common stock between now and June 15, 2015 and will evaluate available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized.
