SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Marin Software Incorporated (NASDAQ: MRIN) (“Marin” or the “Company”), a leading provider of digital marketing software for performance-driven advertisers and agencies, today announced that on October 24, 2023, the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) approved the Company’s request to transfer the listing of the Company’s shares of common stock from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The transfer is expected to take effect at the opening of business on October 25, 2023. The transfer of the Company’s listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market is not expected to have any immediate effect on trading in shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company’s shares will continue to trade uninterruptedly under the symbol “MRIN.” The Nasdaq Capital Market operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market, and companies on the Nasdaq Capital Market must meet certain financial and corporate governance requirements to qualify for continued listing.
As previously disclosed, on April 26, 2023, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq indicating that the Company was not in compliance with certain of Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements, as the closing bid price of the Company’s shares had been below $1.00 per share for the previous 30 consecutive business days. The Company was given a period of 180 calendar days, or until October 23, 2023, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. In response, the Company submitted an application to transfer the listing of its shares from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market.
As a result of the transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market, Nasdaq granted the Company a second period of 180 calendar days, or until April 22, 2024, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s shares must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days on or prior to April 22, 2024. Nasdaq’s determination to grant the additional 180-day compliance period was in part based on, among other things, the Company meeting the continued listing requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market with the exception of the bid price requirement, and the Company having provided written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the additional compliance period, including effecting a reverse stock split if necessary.
Following Nasdaq’s approval of an extended compliance period, the Company intends to continue to actively monitor the minimum bid price requirement and, as appropriate, will consider available options to resolve any deficiencies and regain compliance.
