C

ntinued




Listing Rule or




Standard;





On November 21, 2019, CTI Industries Corporation (“CTI” or the “Company”), received a notice (the “Notice”) of failure to satisfy a continued listing standard from Nasdaq under Listing Rule 5550 (b) (1). The Notice indicated that the Company no longer met the equity standard for continued listing, as its reported stockholders’ equity as reported in its most recent Form 10-Q of approximately $1.9 million is below the required $2.5 million. In addition, the Company does not meet the alternative standards available for continued listing (market value standard or net income standard). As such, the Company has 45 days to submit a plan to regain compliance. If that plan is accepted, CTI may be granted up to 180 calendar days from the date of the letter to evidence compliance. Failure to regain compliance with standards for continued listing would result in the ultimate de-listing of CTI’s common stock, ticker symbol “CTIB”, from Nasdaq. The Company is considering the appropriate response to this Notice.





This summary is not intended to include all terms of the Notice, which is attached hereto.
