On August 10, 2021, AIkido Pharma Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), received a staff deficiency notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) informing the Company that its common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, failed to comply with the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

Pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided with a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or February 7, 2022, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. To regain compliance, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days prior to February 7, 2022.
