OpGen Receives Nasdaq Notice Regarding Delayed Form 10-K

ROCKVILLE, Md., April 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OpGen, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPGN, “OpGen” or “the Company”) announced today that it received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) due to the Company not filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”). Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires listed companies to timely file all periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company previously filed a Form 12b-25 with the SEC disclosing that it was unable to file the Form 10-K by April 1, 2024 without unreasonable effort or expense.

The Company previously received written notices from Nasdaq that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) for failing to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share for a 30 consecutive business day period (the “Minimum Bid Price Rule”). As previously disclosed, on February 9, 2024, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq that a Nasdaq Hearings Panel had granted the Company until June 3, 2024 to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule. The most recent notice provides that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel will consider the delinquent Form 10-K in connection with its prior grant of an additional period to regain compliance. If the Nasdaq Hearings Panel continues to permit the Company the additional period to regain compliance, the Company expects that it will be required by Nasdaq to file the Form 10-K no later than June 3, 2024 to avoid a delisting determination.

The notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq. While the Company can provide no assurance as to timing, the Company is working diligently to finalize the Form 10-K and plans to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule.
