Corcept: What Did I Tell You?

Don't let it be said that I didn't warn you. Finding a positive result for Corlux (mifepristone) without having to bend reality too greatly would probably help the company. If two trials failed, though, why would the current trial succeed?

SEC Filing Below...

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

Nasdaq has notified Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated that the Company is not in compliance with continuous listing standards for inclusion on the Nasdaq Global Market because (i) pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(5), the Company’s price per share for its Common Stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for 30 consecutive business days, and (ii) pursuant to Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(3), the Company’s stockholders’ equity reported on its Form 10-Q for the period ending September 30, 2006 did not comply with the minimum $10 million requirement.

The Nasdaq notifications were provided in two letters dated November 10, 2006. On November 16, 2006 the Nasdaq staff determined pursuant to Marketplace Rule 4814(b) to adjust the period of time required for Corcept to disclose the receipt of the two letters to no later than the close of business on November 22, 2006.

Pursuant to Marketplace Rule 4450(e)(2), the company has a 180 day grace period to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid price requirement. In order to regain compliance, the bid price of the Company’s common stock must close at $1.00 or more per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days anytime before May 9, 2007.

Nasdaq has advised the Company that under Marketplace Rule 4803, the Company has until December 4, 2006 to provide Nasdaq a specific plan to achieve and sustain compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity standard.
