In December, NASDAQ has issued a notice to BIOLASE intimating that it did not meet the Minimum Price Bid Requirement because the company’s closing bid price per share was below $1.00 over a span of 30 consecutive trading days. But now in its recent letter, NASDAQ staff determined that the closing bid price of the common stock of BIOLASE has been $1.00 a share or better for the last ten successive business days, from January 21, 2021, to February 3, 2021. In light of that NASDAQ confirmed that the company has resumed compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Provision, and the matter is now closed.
