MOHO’S Transfer to Nasdaq Capital Market
As per the announcement, the approval for the transfer was received on March 16 from Nasdaq. Thus, the company’s ADSs commenced trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market at the opening of business on March 17. According to the announcement, the transfer would have no impact on the trading of the company’s ADSs and will uninterruptedly continue trading under “MOHO”. Moreover, the Nasdaq Capital Market and Nasdaq Global Market substantially operate in the same manner with certain requirements for continued listing on Nasdaq Capital Market.
Reason for Transfer
Previously, on September 16, 2021, the company was notified about its non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). Due to a below $1.00 closing bid price for over 30 consecutive days, the company was in non-compliance with Nasdaq. Therefore, the company was provided with 180 calendar days until March 15, 2022, for regaining compliance. Subsequently, the company submitted a request for the transfer which has thus extended the grace period. Resultantly, the company now has until September 12, 2022, to regain compliance with Nasdaq.
MOHO’s Financial Highlights
In the third quarter of 2021, the company has net revenues of $28.3 million with a gross margin rate of 22.7%. This compares to a gross margin rate of 17.7% on net revenues of $71.5 million in Q3 of 2020. The decrease in net revenue was driven by a decline in product sales in the quarter.
