Monster Digital Submits Plan With Nasdaq To Regain Compliance

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2017) - Monster Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSDI) announced today that it has submitted its plan to Nasdaq detailing how it will regain compliance with Nasdaq continued listing requirements.

On April 17, 2017, Monster Digital received a letter from Nasdaq indicating that it was no longer in compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) requires listed companies to maintain stockholders' equity of at least $2.5 million. In Monster Digital's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, it reported stockholders' equity of $2,488,000, which is below the minimum stockholders' equity required for continued listing pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). Further, as of April 17, 2017, Monster Digital did not meet the alternative compliance standards relating to the market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations and did not comply with the Nasdaq Listing Rules.

If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq may grant Monster Digital an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the original non-compliance date of April 17, 2017, or until October 13, 2017, to regain compliance. The company's common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market pending Nasdaq's review of the plan of compliance.
