DALLAS, TX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RF Monolithics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RFMI) ("RFM"), a leader in delivering quality RF hardware solutions, announced that on October 1, 2008, it received a deficiency letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that it is not in compliance with the continued listing requirements on the NASDAQ Capital Market because, for the previous 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of its common stock had closed below the $1.00 minimum per share requirement for continued listing as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4).
It is NASDAQ's customary practice to issue a deficiency letter when a listed company does not meet the minimum bid price requirement. By NASDAQ rule, the company will be provided 180 calendar days, or until March 30, 2009, to regain compliance with the bid price requirement. The deficiency letter has no effect on the listing of the company's common stock at this time and its common stock will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "RFMI".
The letter also stated that the company can regain compliance with the bid price requirement if, at any time before March 30, 2009, the bid price of its common stock closes at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days. If the company cannot demonstrate compliance by March 30, 2009, NASDAQ will determine whether it meets the NASDAQ Capital Market initial listing criteria set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c), except for the bid price requirement. If RFM meets the initial listing criteria, it will be provided an additional 180 calendar-day period to comply with the bid price requirement. If it is not eligible for this additional compliance period, the company will be provided written notice that its securities will be delisted. At that time, the company would have the right to appeal NASDAQ's determination to delist its securities to a listing qualifications panel, which would stay the effect of the delisting pending a hearing on the matter before the panel.
The company intends to actively monitor the bid price for its common stock between now and March 30, 2009, and consider implementation of various options available to the company if its common stock does not trade at a level that is likely to regain compliance.
