Note 7 — Common and Preferred Stock
On February 21, 2019, a shareholder converted 708,430 shares of preferred stock to 70,843 shares of common stock.
On March 7, 2019 and following an initial notice of non-compliance from Nasdaq on September 7, 2018, the Company received a notice letter from Nasdaq indicating that it had not regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1 per share, as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). However, Nasdaq determined that the Company was eligible for an additional 180-day period, or until September 3, 2019, to regain compliance based on the fact that it met the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and it had provided written notice to Nasdaq of its intent to cure the deficiency during this second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.
On August 15, 2019, after receipt of stockholder and Board approval, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of Ideal Power Inc. to effect a one-for-ten (1:10) reverse stock split of all issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company’s common stock began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis when the market opened on August 20, 2019. The par value of the Company’s common stock remained unchanged at $0.001 per share after the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split reduced the number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding from 14,722,840 to 1,474,001, inclusive of full shares received for fractional interests. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the outstanding shares of the Company’s preferred stock was reduced from 810,000 shares to 81,000 shares. The number of authorized shares of the Company’s common stock was not changed by the reverse stock split.
The reverse stock split proportionately affected the number of shares of the Company’s common stock available for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock subject to all options, warrants and stock awards of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the reverse stock split were proportionately adjusted in accordance with their terms.
On September 4, 2019, the Company received a notice letter from Nasdaq that the Company had regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement and the matter was closed.
On August 21, 2019, the Company was notified by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department that the Company was not in compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market because the Company’s stockholders’ equity was below the required minimum of $2.5 million, and, as of the date of the notification, the Company did not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company had 45 calendar days, or until October 3, 2019, to submit a plan to regain compliance. The Company submitted a plan of compliance on October 3, 2019 addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b). On October 31, 2019, Nasdaq notified the Company of approval of the compliance plan, and Nasdaq granted the Company an extension through November 30, 2019 to take action to evidence compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b), which will require, among other things, that the Company demonstrate compliance within its periodic report for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019. If the Company does not regain compliance, the Company may be subject to delisting.
