Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously disclosed, on September 5, 2023, Salarius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) because the closing bid price per share for the Company’s common stock had closed below $1.00 for the previous 30 consecutive business days (the “Bid Price Rule”). The Company was given until March 4, 2024 to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

On March 5, 2024, the Company received notice (the “Approval”) from Nasdaq that the Company has been granted an additional 180-day grace period, or until September 3, 2024, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. To regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule and qualify for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, the minimum bid price per share of the Company’s common stock must be at least $1.00 for at least 10 consecutive business days on or prior to September 3, 2024. If the Company fails to regain compliance during the additional compliance period, then Nasdaq will notify the Company of its determination to delist the Company’s common stock, at which point the Company would have an opportunity to appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”), but there can be no assurance that the Panel would grant the Company’s request for continued listing. As a condition of the Approval imposed by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(a), the Company notified Nasdaq that it would seek to implement a reverse stock split, if necessary, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

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.
