American Superconductor Corporation Receives Non-Compliance Notice From NASDAQ

On January 14, 2015, American Superconductor Corporation received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (Nasdaq) notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) for continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Select Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) requires listed securities to maintain a minimum bid price of $1.00 per share, and Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) provides that a failure to meet the minimum bid price requirement exists if the deficiency continues for a period of 30 consecutive business days. Based on the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock for the 30 consecutive business days prior to the date of the Notification Letter, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement. The Notification Letter does not impact the Company’s listing on The Nasdaq Global Select Market at this time. In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided 180 calendar days, or until July 13, 2015, to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1). To regain compliance, the Company’s common stock must have a closing bid price of at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. In the event the Company does not regain compliance by July 13, 2015, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance. To facilitate the Company’s efforts to regain compliance, the Company filed a preliminary proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 21, 2015 (the “Proxy Statement”) which includes a proposal (the “Proposal”) seeking stockholder approval of amendments to the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a reverse stock split. If the Proposal is approved by the Company’s stockholders, it will be implemented by the Company’s board of directors if the board of directors determines that a reverse stock split is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. There can be no assurance that the Proposal will be approved by stockholders, or that the Proposal, if approved, would be sufficient to permit the Company to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.
