Lombard Medical Announces Shares to Trade on OTCQX

OXFORDSHIRE, U.K.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 30, 2017-- Lombard Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVAR), a medical device company focused on endovascular aneurysm repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), today announced that it has notified Nasdaq of its intention to voluntarily delist the Company’s shares from the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) and transfer its listing to the OTCQX.

Lombard anticipates that its common shares will trade under its existing ticker symbol EVAR on the OTCQX Market effective as of the market open on November 9, 2017.

The Company intends to file a Form 25, Notification of Removal from Listing under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with the SEC on November 9, 2017, notifying the SEC of delisting from Nasdaq and trading on Nasdaq will cease on the same day. Therefore, the last day of trading on Nasdaq will be November 8, 2017.

The Company believes the transfer to OTCQX is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders, and will provide it with an efficient and cost-effective way to maintain its public market presence.

As previously disclosed, on November 6, 2016, the Company received a notice from Nasdaq notifying it that it did not meet the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing (the “Bid Price Rule”) on the Nasdaq Global Market and received a 180-day period to regain compliance. The Bid Price Rule requires the Company’s shares to trade above $1.00 per share for at least 10 consecutive business days. Subsequently, on May 9, 2017, approval was granted to transfer the listing from the Nasdaq Global Market to Nasdaq and the Company was given until November 6, 2017 to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. Given that the Company has not regained compliance with the Bid Price Rule, it has decided to delist its shares from Nasdaq and transfer its listing to the OTCQX.
