ITEM 3.01 NOTICE OF DELISTING OR FAILURE TO SATISFY A CONTINUED LISTING RULE OR STANDARD; TRANSFER OF LISTING
On June 15, 2012, Powerwave Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), previously received a letter from The NASDAQ OMX Group (NASDAQ) notifying the Company that it failed to comply with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) because the bid price for the Companys common stock, over the last 30 consecutive business days, has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing. In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company had a period of 180 calendar days, or until December 12, 2012, to regain compliance with the NASDAQ minimum bid price rule.
On December 13, 2012, the Company received a Staff Delisting Determination Letter from NASDAQ indicating that the Company had not timely regained compliance with the NASDAQ minimum bid price rule and that the Companys common stock was subject to delisting unless the Company requested a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the Panel.) The Company has requested a hearing before the Panel, and the Panel has set a hearing on January 31, 2013. The delisting action referenced in the Staff Delisting Determination Letter has been stayed pending the issuance of the Panels final decision following the hearing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
