ADC Therapeutics Receives NYSE Notice of Non-Compliance With Continued Listing Standards

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADC Therapeutics SA (NYSE: ADCT) today announced that on October 10, 2023, it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing minimum price criteria set forth in Section 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, which requires listed companies to maintain an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

In accordance with Section 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, the Company has a cure period of six months from receipt of the notice to regain compliance with the continued listing minimum price criteria. The notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s common shares, which will remain listed and traded on the NYSE during this period, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other continued listing requirements.

The Company can regain compliance if on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period the Company’s common shares have a closing share price of at least $1.00 and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month. The Company has notified the NYSE of its intent to cure the deficiency, which may include, if necessary, effecting a reverse share split, subject to board and shareholder approval.
