Aptorum (NASDAQ:APM) stock is falling on Monday after the biopharmaceutical company received a delisting notice from the Nasdaq.

The reason given for the delisting notice is Aptorum failing to maintain proper equity to remain on the Nasdaq Global Market. According to the filing, the company’s equity dropped to $7,833,305 at the end of 2022. $10 million is required to remain on the exchange.

The filing notes that Aptorum has until June 20, 2023, to submit a plan to regain compliance. If the exchange accepts that plan it would give the company until Oct. 31, 2023, to regain compliance with listing requirements.

What This Means for APM Stock

Aptorum’s options include regaining compliance or moving to another exchange. The company says if it fails to regain compliance, then it will consider moving shares of APM stock to the Nasdaq Capital Market.
