DENVER, Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Assure Holdings Corp. (the "Company" or "Assure") (NASDAQ: IONM), a provider of intraoperative neuromonitoring ("IONM") and remote neurology services, today announced that on November 21, 2023 it received a notice (the "Notice") from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") indicating that as a result of the delinquency in the timely filing of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2023 (the "10-Q"), the Company is out of compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Listing Rule"), which requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Notice provides that the Company has 60 calendar days from the date of the Notice, or January 22, 2024, to submit a plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). If Nasdaq accepts the Company's plan to regain compliance, then Nasdaq may grant the Company up to 180 calendar days from the prescribed due date of the 10-Q, or May 20, 2024, to regain compliance.
The Company continues to work diligently to complete the 10-Q and expects to file the 10-Q prior to January 22, 2024, which would eliminate the need for the Company to submit to Nasdaq a formal plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.
The current notice will have no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq. While the Company can provide no assurances as to the timing, the Company's management is working diligently to complete the 10-Q and plans to file the 10-Q as soon as practicably possible to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.
