NEW YORK, May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDIROM Healthcare Technologies Inc. (NasdaqCM: MRM), a leading holistic health services provider in Japan (the “Company”), today announced that on May 17, 2022, as a result of its failure to timely file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 20-F”), it received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company was not in compliance with the periodic filing requirements for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). Nasdaq listing rules provide the Company with 60 calendar days from the date of the notice to submit a plan to regain compliance. The Company intends to file the Form 20-F prior to the expiration of the 60-day period.
The Nasdaq notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s American Depositary Shares representing its common shares on Nasdaq. As previously disclosed by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on April 28, 2022, the Company was unable to file its Form 20-F by its original deadline without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company is working diligently on its plan to regain compliance and file its Form 20-F as soon as practicable.
