Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On February 19, 2020, One Stop Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company) provided notice to the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (Nasdaq) pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5625 that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaqs independent director requirement, set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605, and requested a period to cure this non-compliance.
As previously disclosed on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 18, 2020, the Board of Directors (the Board) terminated the employment of the Companys Chief Executive Officer, Steve Cooper, and appointed David Raun, an independent Board member, as the Companys interim Chief Executive Officer on February 15, 2020. As a result of these changes, Mr. Raun lost his independance and the Companys Board is now split evenly 3-3 between independent and non-independent directors.
This compliance matter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Companys common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market.
On February 21, 2020, Nasdaq issued a letter to the Company confirming that it will provide the Company with the requested cure period in order to regain compliance with the majority independent board requirement as follows:
Until the earlier of the Companys next annual shareholders meeting or February 15, 2021; or
If the next annual shareholders meeting is held before August 13, 2020, then the Company must evidence compliance no later than August 13, 2020.
The Company anticipates that it will regain compliance with the majority independent board requirement at its next annual shareholders meeting which is tentatively scheduled for May 20, 2020.
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.
