Nasdaq told the company that its shares have failed to meet a minimum $1 per share closing price for 30 consecutive days and may face delisting action.

The company, which also trades on the Australian Securities Exchange, has 45 days to submit a plan to the Nasdaq as to regaining compliance.

The cancer diagnostics developer said it was undertaking the reverse stock split in order to meet the Nasdaq's $1 minimum bid price requirement.

Last month, the company announced two transactions that it said would enable it to regain compliance with the Nasdaq's listing requirement.
