Uranium Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: URRE) (“URI” or the “Company”), announced that on July 17, 2012, it received notification from NASDAQ granting an additional 180-day period, or until January 14, 2013, to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s minimum $1.00 bid price per share rule. Under NASDAQ listing rules, the Company was granted this extension because it met the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other applicable NASDAQ listing requirements, except the bid price requirement, and the Company provided written notice to NASDAQ of its intention to cure the bid price deficiency during the second compliance period.
The Company will regain compliance with the minimum bid requirement if at any time prior to January 14, 2013, the bid price for the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or above for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days.
If the Company does not regain compliance by the end of this second grace period, it will receive notification from NASDAQ that its shares are subject to delisting. At that point the Company may then appeal the delisting determination to a Hearings Panel.
About Uranium Resources, Inc.
Uranium Resources Inc. explores for, develops and mines uranium. Since its incorporation in 1977, URI has produced over 8 million pounds of uranium by in-situ recovery (ISR) methods in the state of Texas. URI also has 183,000 acres of uranium mineral holdings and 101.4 million pounds of in-place mineralized uranium material in New Mexico and an NRC license to produce up to 1 million pounds of uranium per year. The Company acquired these properties over the past 20 years along with an extensive information database of historic drill hole logs, assay certificates, maps and technical reports. None of URI’s properties is currently in production.
URI’s strategy is to fully develop its resource base in New Mexico and Texas, expand its asset base both within and outside of New Mexico and Texas, partner with larger mining companies that have undeveloped uranium assets or with junior mining companies that do not have the mining experience of URI, as well as provide restoration expertise to those that require the capability or lack the proficiency.
