Great Basin Receives Positive Nasdaq Listing Determination

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Great Basin Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ:GBSN), a molecular diagnostics company, announced today that on June 23, 2016, the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel") issued a determination granting the Company's request for the continued listing of its common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq").

“We are moving aggressively to implement our plan and are optimistic it will result in compliance with the Market Value of Listed Securities requirement before the end of this extension period.”

The Company's continued listing on Nasdaq is subject to, among other things, the Company evidencing compliance with its plan to meet the minimum $35 million market value of listed securities requirement by October 10, 2016.

The Company is taking definitive steps to timely evidence compliance with the terms of the Panel's decision; however, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do so.

“We presented our detailed plan for compliance on June 16, 2016 and are pleased that the Panel has quickly granted us the additional time to regain compliance,” said Jeff Rona, chief financial officer of Great Basin. “We are moving aggressively to implement our plan and are optimistic it will result in compliance with the Market Value of Listed Securities requirement before the end of this extension period.”
