All were notified in August that they are in violation of a rule that requires their shares to trade above $1. The companies now have less than six months to regain compliance.Cascade Financial (CASB) last closed higher than $1 on June 18, days before shareholders at the annual meeting approved a proposal to increase authorized common stock to 65 million shares from 25 million. There are 12.3 million shares of Cascade Financial shares outstanding as of the end of the second quarter.
