NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abeona Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: ABEO), a fully-integrated leader in cell and gene therapy, today announced that the Company has been granted an additional 180-day period from Nasdaq’s Listing Qualification Department, through November 14, 2022, to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company's common stock continues to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "ABEO."
If at any time until November 14, 2022, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock is at or above $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days, Nasdaq will provide the Company with written confirmation of compliance.
