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

On October 18, 2022, Biocept, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that for the 30 consecutive trading days preceding the Notice, the bid price of the Company’s common stock had closed below the $1.00 per share minimum required for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”).

The Notice has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time, and the Company’s common stock continues to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “BIOC.”

Under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), if during the 180 calendar day period following the date of the Notice (the “Compliance Period”) the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock is at or above $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Company will regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement and its common stock will continue to be eligible for listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market absent noncompliance with any other requirement for continued listing.

If the Company does not regain compliance by the end of the Compliance Period, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period (the “Additional Compliance Period”) if, as of the end of the Compliance Period, the Company meets the continued listing requirement for the market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market, except for the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, and the Company provides written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the Additional Compliance Period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If the Company is not eligible for the Additional Compliance Period or it appears to the Staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Staff”) that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, the Staff will provide written notice to the Company that its common stock will be subject to delisting. At that time, the Company may appeal the Staff’s delisting determination to a Nasdaq Hearing Panel.

In response to the Notice, the Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common stock and may, if appropriate, consider implementing available options to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.
