PhotoMedex Transfers U.S. Listing to NASDAQ Capital Market

HORSHAM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 9, 2016-- PhotoMedex, Inc. (NasdaqGS and TASE:PHMD) announces that its application to be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market has been approved by NASDAQ. Effective as of March 10, 2016, the Company's stock will be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market, rather than on the NASDAQ Global Select Market. This move to the Capital Market will not affect the trading of the Company's common stock. The NASDAQ Capital Market is a continuous trading market that operates in substantially the same manner as the NASDAQ Global Select Market, but with less stringent listing requirements. The Company's common shares will continue to trade on NASDAQ under the symbol "PHMD."

As previously disclosed, PhotoMedex was notified by NASDAQ on September 29, 2015 that it no longer satisfied the $1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement for continued listing, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). The Company was given an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until March 28, 2016, to regain compliance with the listing rules. If at any time during that period the closing bid price of the Company's common stock is at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, compliance will be regained. However, if the company fails to regain compliance during this 180-day period, its common stock will be subject to delisting by NASDAQ.

The Company intends to seek an extension of time in which to comply with that requirement, should the Company’s share price not meet the bid price requirement by the end of the compliance period. The transfer of its stock from the NASDAQ Global Select Market to the NASDAQ Capital Market is part of the process to request such an extension.

PhotoMedex intends to consider a range of available options to regain compliance with this continued listing standard within the grace period, and has provided written notice to NASDAQ of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during this second grace period by carrying out a reverse stock split, if necessary. At its 2015 annual meeting, , PhotoMedex shareholders granted authority to the board of directors to implement, as needed, a reverse split in a ratio up to one common share for each five shares outstanding. The board has decided to delay acting upon that authority while the recently announced transaction with DS Healthcare, Inc. is still pending.
