VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“InMed” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INM), a research, development, manufacturing corporation specializing in the commercialization of rare cannabinoids, announces that, as previously disclosed pursuant to a Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on June 21, 2022, the Company received written notice from the listing qualifications department staff of The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying it that the closing bid price of the Company’s common shares over a period of 30 consecutive trading days was below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
In accordance with applicable Nasdaq procedures, the Company has a period of 180 calendar days following the receipt of the written notice mentioned above to cure the deficiency and regain compliance. The notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s common shares, which will continue to trade on the Nasdaq subject to the Company’s continued compliance with the other listing requirements of the Nasdaq. The common shares of the Company will continue to trade under the symbol “INM”. The Company intends to monitor the closing share price for its common shares and explore available options to regain compliance.
In the event the Company does not evidence compliance with the minimum bid price requirement during the 180-day grace period, it is expected that Nasdaq would notify the Company that its common shares are subject to delisting. At such time, the Company may appeal such determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) and it is expected that the Company’s securities would continue to be listed and available to trade on Nasdaq at least pending the completion of the appeal process. There can be no assurance that any such appeal would be successful or that the Company would be able to evidence compliance with the terms of any extension that may be granted by the Panel.
