Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces NYSE American’s Decision to Suspend Trading In Its Common Stock

The Company announced today that the Listings Qualifications Panel of the Committee for Review of the Board of Directors of the NYSE American LLC upheld the NYSE Regulation staff’s previously announced determination to initiate delisting proceedings with respect to the Company’s common stock. The company maintains strategic focus on its Fix, Fund, Propel approach.

DUBLIN, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE American: NAVB) (“Navidea” or the “Company”), a company focused on the development of precision immunodiagnostic agents and immunotherapeutics, today announced that the Listings Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”) of the Committee for Review of the Board of Directors of the NYSE American LLC (the “Committee”) upheld the NYSE Regulation staff’s previously announced determination to initiate delisting proceedings with respect to the Company’s common stock. Accordingly, the staff of NYSE Regulation has suspended trading in the common stock of Navidea from the NYSE American. The Company anticipates that its common stock will begin trading on the over-the-counter (OTC) markets.

The Company has a right to request a review of the Panel’s decision to delist the common stock by the Committee by making a written request within 15 calendar days of the date of the Panel’s decision. The filing of an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission to delist the common stock is pending completion of all applicable procedures, including any appeal by the Company of the Panel’s decision. The Company is in the process of determining whether to request a review of the Panel’s decision.

In the event the Company’s common stock is delisted, the Company will continue to be a Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reporting company. The Company may then also consider relisting its common stock on a national securities exchange in the future if the Company determines that doing so is in the best interest of the Company and its stockholders. The Panel’s decision does not affect Navidea’s business operations.

“We are respectful of the process and the perspective of the Exchange’s staff and Listings Qualifications Panel,” said Craig A. Dais, Navidea’s Chief Financial Officer. “We also believe in the progress the Company continues to make, and the impact of the changes being made to move the Company forward. We will maintain our focus on exploring all strategic options which advance us toward the Company’s objectives, including continuing active discussions focused on licensing partnerships and other non-dilutive capital raise options, in order to meet the Company’s business goals and deliver value to our stockholders.”
