BIOLASE Regains Compliance With Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Requirement And Cancels Special Meeting Of Stockholders
FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), a global leader in dental lasers, today received official notification from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market Inc. ("NASDAQ") that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Rule 5550(a)(2) of the Nasdaq Listing Rules (the "Minimum Bid Price Requirement").
BIOLASE had previously received written notice from NASDAQ in December 2019 indicating that because the closing bid price per share had been below $1.00 for a period of 30 consecutive trading days, the Company did not meet the Minimum Price Bid Requirement. According to the recent notification letter, the staff of NASDAQ has determined that for the last ten consecutive business days, from January 21, 2021 to February 3, 2021, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater, and the Company has regained compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, and the matter is now closed.
The Company has canceled its Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for February 16, 2021. As a result of regaining compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the Company is no longer seeking stockholder approval to implement a reverse split of the Company's outstanding shares of Common Stock at this time.
