Monster Digital Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Notice of Bid Price Deficiency

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2017) - Monster Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSDI), today announced that on June 15, 2017, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Listings Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that the minimum bid price per share for its common stock was below $1.00 for a period of thirty (30) consecutive business days and that the Company did not meet the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

The Nasdaq notification letter does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company's common stock, and the stock will continue to trade uninterrupted under the symbol "MSDI." Company management intends to resolve the situation to allow for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

The Company has a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until December 12, 2017, to regain compliance with Nasdaq's minimum bid price requirement. If at any time during the 180-day compliance period, the closing bid price per share of the Company's common stock is at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company a written confirmation of compliance and the matter will be closed. In the event the Company does not regain compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) within this compliance period, it may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance. To qualify for the additional time, the Company will be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards, with the exception of the minimum bid price requirement, and will need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Nasdaq staff concludes that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company determines not to submit the required materials or make the required representations, the Company's common stock will be subject to delisting by Nasdaq.
