Nov 21, 2022

NYSE notified Gelesis (NYSE: GLS ) that its total market capitalization and stockholders' equity are below its compliance criteria. A company would be considered below criteria by the NYSE if its total market capitalization is less than $50M over a 30- trading day period and its stockholders' equity is less than $50M. The company is required to respond within 45 days of the Letter with a business plan that demonstrates compliance with the continued listing standard within 18 months of receipt of the letter.
