Item 8.01 Other Events.


On March 10, 2020, Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd., a Virginia corporation (the “Company”) received a letter from the Office of General Counsel of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) has granted an exception to permit the Company to demonstrate its compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), which requires the Company’s listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share (the “Minimum Bid Price”), on or before May 8, 2020. The shares of the Company are continued to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market, subject to the condition listed above.


As previously disclosed, on January 22, 2019, Nasdaq notified the Company that it did not comply with the bid price requirement in Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), and in accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), was granted 180 calendar days, until July 22, 2019, to regain compliance. Subsequently, on July 23, 2019, the Company was provided an additional 180 calendar day compliance period, or until January 20, 2020, to demonstrate compliance. On January 21, 2020, the Company was notified of Nasdaq’s delist determination as it had not regained compliance. On January 28, 2020, the Company requested a hearing, which was held on February 27, 2020.


The Company is diligently working to restructure its business towards more revenue generation and profitability increase. The Company also has the option to effect a reverse stock split if necessary. There can be no assurance either plan will allow the Company to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price requirement, or will otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq Listing Rules.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
