|Item 3.01.||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On November 28, 2018, FuelCell Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock was below the required minimum of $1.00 per share for the previous 30 consecutive business days.
This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock.
In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company has a period of 180 calendar days, or until May 28, 2019, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. If at any time before May 28, 2019 the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock is at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company with written confirmation that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement and this matter will be closed.
The Company has notified Nasdaq of its intention to regain compliance with the Nasdaq minimum bid price requirement. The Company is currently in compliance with all other Nasdaq quantitative continued listing standards.
If the Company is unable to demonstrate compliance with Rule 5450(a)(1) by May 28, 2019, the Company can submit an application to transfer its securities to The Nasdaq Capital Market and request an additional 180 day period to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.
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.
