Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K on October 19, 2020, Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (the “Company”) received from the Nasdaq OMX Group (“Nasdaq”) a letter notifying the Company that it no longer complied with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) due to the Company’s failure to maintain a minimum of $2.5 million in stockholders’ equity (or meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities of $35 million or $500,000 in net income from continuing operations).


On December 15, 2020, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K stating its belief that it had satisfied the minimum of $2.5 million in stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market.


On December 16, 2020, the Company received a conditional compliance letter from Nasdaq, stating that based on the Company’s December 15, 2020 Current Report on Form 8-K, Nasdaq’s Staff has determined that the Company complies with the Rule. However, if the Company fails to evidence compliance upon filing its next periodic report it may be subject to delisting. At that time, the Staff will provide written notification to the Company, which may then appeal the Staff’s determination to a Hearings Panel. A copy of Nasdaq’s compliance letter is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
