Mereo BioPharma Soars to New Heights with Nasdaq Listing Transfer

Mereo BioPharma Group plc (NASDAQ: MREO) is thrilled to announce that the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market has granted approval for the transfer of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. This transfer will become effective on May 3, 2023, and marks a major milestone for the clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, which is focused on rare diseases.

The Company’s ADSs, trading under the ticker symbol “MREO”, remain unaffected by the move to the Nasdaq Capital Market. This transition was only possible due to the Company meeting the market value of publicly held shares requirement and other requirements for initial listing, except for the bid price requirement. Thus, the Company’s ADSs continue to be traded in the same manner as the Nasdaq Global Market.

The Company is delighted to announce that, following its transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market, it has regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1), which requires that the bid price of its ADSs meet or exceed $1.00 per ADS for at least ten consecutive business days.

After surpassing this benchmark on May 5, 2023, the Company will receive an official written notification from Nasdaq confirming its compliance status.
