ZURICH, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2024 / NLS Pharmaceutics Ltd. (NASDAQ:NLSP)(NASDAQ:NLSPW) ("NLS" or the "Company"), a Swiss clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of innovative therapies for patients with rare and complex central nervous system disorders, today announced that it has been notified by the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") that the Company's plan to regain compliance submitted on February 23, 2024 has been approved.

On January 9, 2024, NLS received a letter from the Listing Qualifications staff of Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that it was no longer in compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

Upon the expiration of that grace period, on February 23, 2024, NLS submitted the Company's plan, on time, to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1).

On March 7, 2024, the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq notified NLS that they had accepted the plan submitted and the Company has been afforded an additional 180 day calendar days from the date of the letter, or until July 8, 2024, to evidence compliance.
