Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of
On April 28, 2020, The Dixie Group, Inc. (the "Company") received a notification letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Staff of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that the closing bid price for its common stock had been below $1.00 for the previous 30 consecutive business days and that the Company therefore is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued inclusion on the Nasdaq Global Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(l). The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's common stock on Nasdaq.
Under the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company now has until December 28, 2020 to regain compliance. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Nasdaq delayed beginning the applicable 180 day period within which to regain compliance to June 30, 2020. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must be at least $1.00 or higher for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, and in such case, Nasdaq will provide the Company with written confirmation of compliance. If the Company does not regain compliance before December 28, 2020, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar days, provided the Company meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for Nasdaq, except the bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice to Nasdaq of our intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period. If the Company is not eligible or it appears to Nasdaq that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, Nasdaq will provide written notice to the Company that the Company's common stock will be subject to delisting. In the event of such notification, the Company may appeal Nasdaq's determination to delist its securities, but there can be no assurance that Nasdaq would grant the Company's request for continued listing.
The Company intends to take all reasonable measures available to the Company to achieve compliance to allow for continued listing on Nasdaq. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq listing criteria.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
