The Company intends to timely request a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the "Panel") under Listing Rule 5815(a) to present its plan to regain compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which request will automatically stay the delisting of the Company's securities for 15 calendar days from the date of the request.
