Vaxxinity (NASDAQ:VAXX) stock is falling hard on Monday after the biotechnology company announced plans to voluntarily delist its shares from the Nasdaq Exchange.

Vaxxinity will file to delist its shares on April 29, 2024. The company expects this to result in its final day of trading on the Nasdaq Exchange being May 9, 2024.

Vaxxinity is voluntarily delisting its shares due to a delisting notice it received in February. This gave the company until Aug. 7, 2024, to get its share price back above the $1 minimum required for compliance.

However, Vaxxinity is delisting its shares early to reduce its obligations. It notes that this will save money compared to staying on the exchange.

What That Means for VAXX Stock

Just because Vaxxinity is voluntarily delisting its shares doesn’t mean the stock will disappear. Instead, the company expects its shares to trade on the OTC Markets after May 9.

VAXX stock is down 58% as of Monday morning, with more than 278,000 shares traded. That’s still below its daily average trading volume of about 447,000 shares.
