Motus GI (NASDAQ:MOTS) stock is falling on Friday following a warning that the medical technology company is in danger of being delisted.

Motus GI got a delisting notice from the Listing Qualifications Staff of the Nasdaq Exchange on April 5. In that notice, the company was warned about a potential delisting due to its low share price.

Shares of MOTS stock have been trading for less than $1 each for over 30 business days, which means the company is not complying with the minimum bid to remain listed on the exchange.

On that same note, Motus GI has enacted reverse stock splits with a ratio of 250 shares or more to one over the last year. That makes it ineligible for a compliance period to regain the $1 minimum bid.

What This Means for MOTS Stock

Motus GI has until today to request a hearing with the Nasdaq Exchange to try and avoid delisting. However, the company doesn’t believe it can regain compliance and is choosing not to seek a hearing.

As a result, shares of MOTS stock will stop trading on the Nasdaq Exchange when markets open on Tuesday. This will result in its shares switching over to the OTC Pink Market of the OTCMarkets. It intends to apply for listing on the Over-The-Counter Quotation Bureau (OTCQB).

Finally, Motus GI says it is exploring a range of strategic options to maximize shareholder value while speeding up the commercialization of its Pure-Vu System.

MOTS stock is down 37.1% as of Friday morning.
