Ability Inc. Announces Receipt of Delisting Determination from Nasdaq Staff; Company to Request Hearing

Globe Newswire 13-Jul-2018 4:15 PM

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ability Inc. (NASDAQ:ABIL) (the "Company"), a leading provider of innovative tactical communications intelligence solutions, today announced that it received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (the "Staff") indicating that the Company did not meet the Staff's July 11, 2018 deadline to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) due to the Company's failure to maintain a minimum of $2,500,000 in shareholders' equity or any alternatives to such requirement.

As a result, the Company would be subject to delisting on July 23, 2018 unless it requests a hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel").

The Company intends to request a hearing before the Panel at which it will present its plan of compliance and request a further extension of time. The Panel has the discretion to grant the Company up to an additional 180 calendar days from July 12, 2018 to regain compliance.

This request will ordinarily automatically stay any delisting or suspension action pending the issuance of a final decision by the Panel; however, the Nasdaq has broad discretionary public interest authority that it can exercise to apply additional or more stringent criteria for the continued listing of the Company's ordinary shares, or suspend or delist securities. There can be no assurance that the Panel will ultimately grant an extension of the compliance period.
