As previously reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on August 21, 2019, Ideal Power Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) 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.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this Current Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
