Ciphergen Receives Noncompliance Letter from Nasdaq

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Ciphergen Biosystems said last week that it has received a letter from Nasdaq indicating that it is not in compliance the exchange’s listing requirements.
Specifically, Nasdaq warned Ciphergen that it is not compliant with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3), which requires it to have a minimum of $2.5 million in stockholders' equity; $35 million market value of listed securities; or $500,000 of net income from continuing operations for the most recently completed fiscal year or two of the three most recently completed fiscal years.
Ciphergen has 30 calendar days, or until Sept. 14, 2007, to regain compliance.
If the company doesn’t meet these requirements by that date, it faces delisting.
