Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On December 21, 2018, OncoSec Medical Incorporated (the “Company”) received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company’s consolidated closing bid price has been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days, and that, therefore, the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), which is the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has automatically been afforded a 180-calendar day grace period, or until June 19, 2019, to regain compliance. The continued listing standard will be met if the consolidated closing bid price of the Company’s common stock is at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the 180-calendar day grace period.
If the Company is not in compliance by June 19, 2019, the Company may be afforded a second 180-calendar day period to regain compliance if it meets certain requirements. As of the date of this filing, the Company believes that it would be eligible for a second 180-day grace period; however, such determination would not be made until June 19, 2019, and it is possible that the Company will not meet those requirements at that time.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and consider its available options to resolve the noncompliance with the minimum bid price requirement.
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangement of Certain Officers.
Effective December 20, 2018, the Company appointed Mr. Joon Kim (“Mr. Kim”) as a director on the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), effective as of December 20, 2018. Mr. Kim was appointed to the Board in conjunction with the second closing of shares purchased by Alpha Holdings, Inc. (“Alpha”) on December 7, 2018. The Company previously announced that it entered into a stock purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) with Alpha on August 31, 2018, pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to Alpha shares of its common stock equal to an aggregate amount of up to $15,000,000 at a market purchase price of $1.50 per share (the “Shares”). Pursuant to the Agreement, Alpha received the option to nominate a director to the Board and nominated Mr. Kim. Upon such nomination, the Board examined his credentials, experience, and background and determined that Mr. Kim would be a valuable addition to the Board. Following such determination, the Board unanimously agreed to appoint Mr. Kim to the Board, effective as of December 20, 2018.
Mr. Kim, age 53, is an accomplished litigator and criminal law lawyer with extensive experience in both criminal and civil litigation matters. As a partner in Lee & Ko’s International Litigation and Dispute Resolution and White Collar Crime Practice Groups, Mr. Kim advises clients, both domestic and international, on a broad range of litigation and dispute-resolution matters. With a particularly strong background in representing clients in court proceedings, Mr. Kim has a comprehensive understanding of every stage of the litigation process, including all aspects of initial investigatory/discovery proceedings, settlement negotiations, hearings, motions, trials, evidentiary issues and the handling of post-judgment challenges and appeals.
Prior to joining Lee & Ko, Mr. Kim worked for several years as litigation lawyer and served from 2008 to 2017 as a public prosecutor in California. Mr. Kim has first-chaired both jury and non-jury trials, and has been trained in all aspects of litigation. During his time as a public prosecutor, Mr. Kim also had the experience of serving in 2016 as a research fellow in Korea at the Institute of Justice, under the auspices of the Korean Ministry of Justice, where he worked closely with Korean public prosecutors. Mr. Kim received his J.D. from Berkeley School of Law and his B.S. from the Berkeley School of Business.
Upon his appointment as a director, Mr. Kim’s compensation for his services as a director, including his services on any committees of the Company’s Board, will consist of a stock option award to purchase up to 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, which vests in equal monthly installments over a 12-month period subject to continued service as a director on each vesting date. No family relationships exist between Mr. Kim and any of the Company’s directors or other executive officers.
