Evaxion Receives Nasdaq Notification


COPENHAGEN, Denmark, May 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evaxion Biotech A/S (NASDAQ: EVAX) (“Evaxion” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage TechBio company specializing in developing AI-Immunology™ powered vaccines, today announced that on May 7, 2024, it received a letter (the “Letter”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) Listing Qualifications Department notifying the Company that it is not currently in compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity requirement.

Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) requires listed companies to maintain stockholders’ equity of at least $2,500,000. In the Company’s Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, the Company reported stockholders’ equity of ($4,729,000). The Company has determined that its current deficiency in minimum stockholder’s equity is a result of the IFRS accounting treatment of its investor warrants that are treated as a derivative liability, hence reducing equity. The Company is working on mitigating the impact of this accounting treatment to ensure full compliance with Nasdaq listing rules. Nasdaq has also determined that the Company does not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations for continued listing. In accordance with Nasdaq Rule 5810(c)(2)(A), the Company has 45 calendar days from the date of the Letter, or until June 21, 2024, to submit a plan to regain compliance. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the date of the Letter, or until November 03, 2024, to evidence compliance.

The Company’s business operations are not affected by the receipt of the Letter. The Company is looking into various options available to regain compliance and maintain its continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company intends to submit the compliance plan as soon as practicable.

The notification letter has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s ordinary shares, which will continue to be lised and traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market during this period, subject to the Company’s compliance with other listing standards.
