(Nasdaq: ESEA) (the “Company”), an owner and operator of container carrier vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for containerized cargoes, announced that it received notice from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) dated January 14, 2019 (the “Notice”) indicating that the Company is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) because the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock over a period of 30 consecutive business days was less than $1.00 per share.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has six months following receipt of the notification to regain compliance with the minimum share 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 six months following the date of the Notice. Alternatively, the Company could also take other actions to cure the deficiency, such as a reverse stock split (for which the Company has already received shareholder approval).
The Company intends to cure the deficiency within the prescribed timeframe. During this time, the Company’s common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company’s business operations are not affected by the receipt of the Notice.
