ZHUHAI, China, Nov. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Powerbridge Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Powerbridge” or “the “Company“) (NASDAQ: PBTS), a provider of multi-industry technology solutions, announced that it has received a notification letter (the “Notification Letter“) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “NASDAQ“) dated November 7, 2022, notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement as set forth under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) for continued listing on the NASDAQ. This press release is issued pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(b), which requires prompt disclosure upon the receipt of a deficiency notification.
NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of US$1.00 per share, and Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. Based on the closing bid price of the Company’s ordinary shares for the 30 consecutive business days from September 26, 2022 to November 4, 2022, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement.
In accordance with the NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until May 8, 2023, to regain compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). To regain compliance, the Company’s ordinary shares must have a closing bid price of at least US$1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance by May 8, 2023, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance or may face delisting.
The receipt of the Notification Letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common shares, which will continue to trade uninterrupted on NASDAQ under the ticker “PBTS”. To address this issue, the Company intends to continuously monitor its closing bid price and is in the process of considering various measures to improve its financial position and results of operations, which the Company expects to countervail the short-term adverse effects on its trading price and cure the deficiency in due time.
