Item 8.01 Other Events.
 
As we previously reported, on November 7, 2018 the Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notified us that our common stock failed to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 over the previous 30 consecutive business days as required by the Listing Rules of Nasdaq. On February 25, 2019, the Staff notified us that it has determined that for the 10 consecutive business days, from February 8, 2019 to February 22, 2019, the closing bid price of our common stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater. Accordingly, we have regained compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), and this matter is now closed with Nasdaq.
