Item 8.01 Other Events.
On February 9, 2021, ToughBuilt Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market Inc. (“Nasdaq”) therein stating that the Company has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Price Rule”) which requires that a Nasdaq-listed company’s common stock maintain a minimum bid price of at least $1.00 per share.
As previously announced, the Company received a notification letter from Nasdaq on July 24, 2020, indicating that the closing bid price per share had been below $1.00 for a period of 30 consecutive business days and that the Company did not meet the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. On January 21, 2021, the Company received a 180-day extension from the Staff to meet Nasdaq’s continuing listing requirements by maintaining a minimum bid price per share of $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days. The Company had until July 19, 2021 to meet Nasdaq’s Minimum Bid Price Rule.
The Nasdaq letter, dated February 9, 2021, stated the Staff had determined that for the prior 20 consecutive business days, from January 12, 2021 to February 8, 2021, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock had been at $1.00 or greater and that accordingly, the Company has regained compliance under the Minimum Bid Price Rule and that the matter was deemed closed.
