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

On March 15, 2022, the TherapeuticsMD, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), received a determination letter (the “Letter”) from the staff (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC stating that the Company has not regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share for continued listing of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”), as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”) because the closing bid price of the Common Stock had not been at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days at any time during the 180-calendar day compliance period granted to the Company on September 15, 2021.  


The Company has requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) to appeal the Staff’s determination and present a plan to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If the Company had not requested a hearing, the Common Stock would have been subject to delisting and removal of registration from Nasdaq. While the appeal process is pending, the suspension of trading of the Common Stock on Nasdaq will be stayed and the Common Stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq until the hearing process concludes and the Panel issues its decision. The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of the Common Stock and intends to conduct a reverse stock split if necessary to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.

Donegan, the Vice President – Finance and Chief Accounting Officer of the Company, will succeed Mr. D’Arecca as Interim Chief Financial Officer and Principal Financial and Accounting Officer as of the effective date of Mr. D’Arecca’s resignation. The information regarding Mr. Donegan required by Items 401(b), (d) and (e) of Regulation S-K is set forth in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the SEC on April 14, 2021, and such information is incorporated herein by reference. Other than as described in this Current Report on Form 8-K, since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year, the Company has not engaged in any transactions, and there are no proposed transactions, or series of similar transactions, in which the Company was or is to be a participant and in which Mr. Donegan had a direct or indirect material interest in which the amount involved exceeds or exceeded $120,000.


The Company intends to initiate a search for a permanent Chief Financial Officer and evaluate both internal and external candidates.
