Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


On April 20, 2023, iMedia Brands, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, or the “Company”) received approval from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) and determined to affect the transfer of the listing of our common stock from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. This transfer will be effective at the opening of business on Monday, April 24, 2023. Our common stock will continue to trade under the symbol “IMBI.” The Nasdaq Capital Market is a continuous trading market that operates in substantially the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market and listed companies must meet certain financial requirements and comply with Nasdaq’s corporate governance requirements.


As previously reported, we were notified by Nasdaq on October 14, 2022, that for the preceding 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price of our common stock listed on Nasdaq was below $1.00 per share and therefore we did not comply with the minimum closing bid price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). In anticipation of not regaining compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) by April 12, 2023, the end of our initial 180-day grace period, we applied to transfer the listing of our common stock to the Nasdaq Capital Market.


We are now being afforded an additional 180-day grace period, or until October 9, 2023, to regain compliance with the Nasdaq's minimum bid price requirement. In order to regain compliance, the minimum bid price per share of our common stock must be at least $1.00 for at least ten consecutive business days during the additional 180-day grace period. If we fail to regain compliance during this grace period, our common stock will be subject to delisting by Nasdaq. We have provided written notice of our intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during the second grace period by effecting a reverse stock split if necessary.




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.
