SYDNEY / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2020 / Naked Brand Group Limited (NASDAQ:NAKD) ("Naked" or the "Company"), a global leader in intimate apparel and swimwear, has received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that its stockholders' equity was below $2.5 million, and that the Company therefore did not meet the minimum stockholders' equity required for continued listing under the equity standard pursuant to Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). Because the Company also does not meet the alternative standards for market value of listed securities or net income, the Company no longer complies with Nasdaq's continued listing standards.
The Company has a period of 45 calendar days, until June 29th, 2020, to submit a plan to regain compliance. If the plan is accepted by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department, the Company may receive an extension of up to 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the minimum required stockholders' equity.
The Nasdaq notification has no effect at this time on the listing of the Company's ordinary shares, and the ordinary shares will continue to trade uninterrupted under the symbol "NAKD". Naked will consider all available options to regain compliance with the Nasdaq minimum stockholders' equity listing requirement. If the Nasdaq staff does not accept the Company's plan of compliance, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
