CorMedix Granted Extension of NYSE MKT Listing
CorMedix Inc. (“CorMedix”), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of cardiorenal disease, received a notice from the NYSE MKT that the NYSE-MKT has accepted CorMedix’s plan to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the continued listing standards of the NYSE-MKT and granted CorMedix an extension until June 30, 2013 to regain compliance.
CorMedix had received notice on April 20, 2012 from the NYSE MKT informing it that CorMedix was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the NYSE MKT’s continued listing standards due to financial impairment. CorMedix was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan to the NYSE MKT to regain compliance and, on May 17, 2012, presented its plan to the NYSE MKT. On June 27, 2012, the NYSE MKT accepted CorMedix’s plan and granted it an extension until August 22, 2012 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. On September 21, 2012, the NYSE MKT notified CorMedix that it granted CorMedix another extension to January 31, 2013 and on February 1, 2013, NYSE MKT notified that CorMedix was further granted extension until April 15, 2013 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the NYSE MKT.
Separately, and as previously reported, on April 5, 2013, CorMedix received notice from NYSE MKT indicating that CorMedix was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(i) of the NYSE MKT’s continued listing standards due to having less than $2 million of stockholders’ equity as reported in its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012. Under NYSE MKT regulations, CorMedix must submit a plan of compliance no later than May 6, 2013 to address how it intends to regain compliance by October 20, 2013. If that plan is accepted by NYSE MKT, CorMedix may be able to continue its listing through October 20, 2013, during which time CorMedix will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the plan.
If CorMedix is not in compliance with all of the NYSE MKT’s continued listing standards within the timeframes provided, or does not make progress consistent with the prior plan or the new plan to be submitted to the NYSE MKT during the respective plan period, the NYSE MKT will initiate delisting proceedings.
