Item 3.01.Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


On April 18, 2017, Rennova Health, Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by Nasdaq that the stockholders’ equity balance reported on its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 fell below the $2,500,000 minimum requirement for continued listing under the Nasdaq Capital Market’s Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the “Rule”). As of June 30, 2017, the Company reported a stockholders’ deficit of $17,561,514.


In accordance with the Rule, the Company submitted a plan to Nasdaq outlining how it intends to regain compliance. On August 17, 2017, Nasdaq notified the Company that its plan did not contain evidence of its ability to achieve near term compliance with the continued listing requirements or sustain such compliance over an extended period of time. The Company may appeal the Staff’s decision to a Hearing Panel and intends to do so. The appeal will stay any further action pending the Panel’s decision. If the appeal is successful, the Company may be granted 180 days from August 17, 2017 to regain compliance. The Company is considering its available options to regain compliance, including the previously-announced spin offs of its Advanced Molecular Services Group and its software division, Health Technology Solutions, in a manner by which the Company believes all of its investment to date can be recognized on the Company’s balance sheet. Although there can be no guarantee of a successful appeal or of regaining compliance, the Company expects that it will regain compliance with the Rule.






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.
