TOP Ships Inc. Announces Extension of Nasdaq Minimum Bid Price Compliance Period


ATHENS, Greece, April 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOP Ships Inc. (the "Company"), an international owner and operator of modern, fuel efficient "ECO" tanker vessels, announced today that it has received written notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") dated April 17, 2020, granting an extension to the grace period for regaining compliance with the minimum $1.00 per share bid price requirement from June 23, 2020 to September 7, 2020. The above extension was granted as part of Nasdaq's determination to toll the compliance periods for all public companies, not meeting the continued listing requirements, such as the bid price requirement, due to the extraordinary market conditions and unprecedented turmoil in U.S. financial markets.

The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock between now and September 7, 2020 and is considering its options, in order to regain compliance with the Nasdaq bid price requirement. This deficiency can be cured, if the closing bid price of its common stock is $1.00 per share or higher for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the grace period.
