NASDAQ Grants The Nasdaq Stock Market -- New York 180-Day Extension to Regain Compliance with Minimum Bid Price Rule


12/17/2010 7:26:14 AM

RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insmed Incorporated (Nasdaq CM: INSM), a biopharmaceutical company, announced today that it had received a letter, dated December 16, 2010, from The NASDAQ Stock Market, notifying Insmed that it has been granted an additional 180-day compliance period, or until June 13, 2011, to regain compliance with the $1.00 per share minimum bid price rule for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

The NASDAQ Letter states that, pursuant to Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), Insmed is eligible for this additional compliance period because it meets all other NASDAQ Capital Market initial listing criteria set forth in Listing Rule 5505. Previously, on June 18, 2010, Insmed was notified by NASDAQ that it did not meet the minimum bid price rule required for continued listing and was provided until December 15, 2010 to achieve compliance.
