By way of letter dated July 25, 2019, Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (the “Company” or “Bridgeline”) received notification from the Nasdaq Listings Staff (the “Staff” or “Nasdaq") that it has granted the Company an extension up through August 19, 2019 to submit its compliance of Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the “Rule”) which requires companies to maintain a minimum of $2.5 million in stockholders’ equity for continued listing. Per the Staff, the Company must file its Form 10-Q and provide evidence that the Company is in compliance with the Rule no later than August 19, 2019. In the event the Company does not satisfy the terms of the extension, the Staff will provide written notification that the Company’s securities will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal the Staff’s determination to a Hearings Panel. Bridgeline is committed to submitting its Form 10-Q and supporting evidence of compliance of the Rule no later than August 19, 2019.
