Note 14 — Subsequent Events
On January 2, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a strategic shift to focus on the commercialization of its B-TRAN™ technology and a plan to suspend further power converter system development and sales while the Company located a buyer for its power conversion systems division. On January 4, 2019, the Company implemented a reduction-in-force in connection with this exit activity and recognized an expense of
$92,600 in involuntary termination benefits.The Company did not recognize other associated costs related to exiting production of its power converters products as the sale of the power conversion systems division was deemed probable. At December 31, 2018, the Company has accounted for the assets and liabilities of the power conversion systems division as held for sale and presented this division as discontinued operations. See Note 2
On February 21, 2019, a shareholder converted 708,430 shares of preferred stock to 708,430 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. If the Company is unable to regain compliance with the Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement or with the continued listing requirements of The NASDAQ Stock Market, its common stock may be delisted in the future which could adversely affect its ability to raise additional capital.
