Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
As previously disclosed by Astrotech Corporation (the “Company”) in its Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 26, 2022, Ronald W. Cantwell, a member of the Board of Directors of the Company, passed away on April 19, 2022. Mr. Cantwell, an independent director, served as the chairman of the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) at the time of his passing.
On April 25, 2022, the Company notified The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that due to Mr. Cantwell’s death, the Company is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5606(b)(1), which requires the Audit Committee to be comprised of a minimum of three independent directors and the Company to maintain a majority independent board of directors, respectively. Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(4)(B) and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(b)(1)(A), the Company is entitled to a cure period to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) and Nasdaq Listing Rule 5606(b)(1), which cure periods will expire at the earlier of the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2022 Annual Meeting”) or April 19, 2023, or if the 2022 Annual Meeting is held before October 17, 2022, then the Company must evidence compliance no later than October 17, 2022. On April 27, 2022, Nasdaq issued a letter to the Company confirming the Company’s noncompliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605 and informing the Company of the cure periods. The Company intends to appoint an additional independent director to the Board and the Audit Committee prior to the end of the cure periods.

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.
