Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On August 2, 2022, Aqua Metals, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Letter”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC. The Letter notified the Company that it had fallen below compliance with respect to the continued listing standard set forth in Rule 5550(a)(2) of the Nasdaq Listing Rules because the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock over the previous 30 consecutive trading-day period had fallen below $1.00 per share. The Letter further stated that the Company had 180 days from the date of the Letter, or until January 30, 2023, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement in Rule 5550(a)(2) by achieving a closing bid price for the Company’s common stock of at least $1.00 per share over a minimum of 10 consecutive business days.
On January 17, 2023, the Company was notified by the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC that the Nasdaq staff has determined that for the last 10 consecutive business days, from December 30, 2022 to January 13, 2023, the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock has been at $1.00 per share or greater and that the Company has regained compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

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.
