According to a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, the company is facing delisting on the Nasdaq Exchange. The company said that the exchange’s Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department decided on delisting.
The reason given by the Nasdaq is QTT’s market value of shares sitting below $1 million. The Staff notes that Qutoutiao failed to regain compliance with this Nasdaq rule after a 180-day grace period.
Adding to all of this, Qutoutiao has determined its response to the delisting notice. The company says that it has no intention to appeal the Staff’s decision. This will result in its shares being suspended and delisted on March 23, 2023.
What This Means for QTT Stock
Considering the statements made by Qutoutiao, it doesn’t look like there’s much hope for its American Depositary Shares (ADSs). The Nasdaq decision would see them removed from public trading, which explains why the stock is down today.
It also covers the heavy trading volume investors are seeing today, with some 351,000 shares on the move. That’s a surge over its daily average trading volume of about 53,000 shares as investors sell the stock.
