Sequenom Shares Slide on Nasdaq Delisting Warning

NEW YORK, Sept. 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Shares of Sequenom's stock are down 4.88 percent, or $.04, at $.78 today following news this morning that the company has received a delisting warning letter from the Nasdaq exchange.

 

Sequenom received the letter from Nasdaq's listing qualifications department because the company's shares do not comply with Nasdaq's $1 minimum bid price requirement.

 

Sequenom now has 180 days, or until March 15, 2006, to regain compliance by closing at or above $1 per share for at least 10 consecutive business days. If the company does not regain compliance by this deadline, its common stock could be delisted from the exchange.
