Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On July 1, 2016, Westell Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notification (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) that the bid price for the Company’s Class A Common Stock (“common stock”) has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive trading days as required by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Rule”) for continued listing. The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
The Notice indicates that the Company will be provided 180 calendar days, or until December 28, 2016, to regain compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid requirement. The Notice further indicates that the Company may regain compliance with the Rule if at any time before December 28, 2016, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or above for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule by December 28, 2016, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period if it elects to transfer to The Nasdaq Capital Market to take advantage of the additional compliance period offered on that market. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the bid price deficiency during the second compliance period.
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.
