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


On September 9, 2020, Tellurian Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice from the Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the bid price of the common stock of the Company for the last 30 consecutive trading days had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share required for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).


The Nasdaq notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the common stock of the Company on the Nasdaq Capital Market.


The Nasdaq notification letter indicated that, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), (i) the Company would be provided with 180 calendar days, or until March 8, 2021 to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) and (ii) compliance can be achieved if the closing bid price of the common stock of the Company is at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days before March 8, 2021. If the Company does not regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) by March 8, 2021, the Company may be afforded a second 180 calendar day period, or until September 4, 2021, to regain compliance. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the minimum bid price requirement. In addition, the Company would be required to notify Nasdaq of its intent to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period.


The Company intends to actively monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and will consider all available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).






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.
