Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On May 14, 2020, Smart Sand, Inc (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that for 30 consecutive business days preceding the date of the Notice, the bid price of the Company’s common stock had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum required for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). The Notice has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time, and the Company’s common stock continues to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “SND.”
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company will be granted a 180 calendar day period to regain compliance. However, on April 16, 2020, Nasdaq filed an immediately effective rule change with the Securities and Exchange Commission to toll the compliance period for the Minimum Bid Price Requirement through June 30, 2020 due to the recent turmoil in U.S. and world financial markets. The compliance period for the Minimum Bid Price Requirement will be reinstated on July 1, 2020. As a result, the Company will have 180 calendar days from July 1, 2020, or until December 28, 2020 (the “Compliance Period”), to regain compliance.
The Notice further stated that, if at any time during the Compliance Period, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock is at least $1.00 per share for 10 consecutive business days, the Company will regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement and its common stock will continue to be eligible for listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, absent noncompliance with any other requirement for continued listing.
If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the Compliance Period, then under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(i) the Company may transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market, provided that it meets the applicable market value of publicly held shares requirement for continued listing as well as all other standards for initial listing of its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market (other than the Minimum Bid Price Requirement) and notifies Nasdaq of its intention to cure the deficiency during a second 180 calendar day compliance period that may be granted to the Company pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A)(ii).
If the Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the end of the Compliance Period (or the second compliance period, if applicable), the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement under the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
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.
