The notice, which Artistdirect received March 1, said that the company is subject to delisting for failure to comply with a requirement of a minimum bid price of $1 per share. The Los Angeles-based company has appealed and requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Listings Qualification Panel to review the decision. "We believe we are on a path to achieve profitability with the financial resources to get there," Artistdirect Chief Executive Marc Geiger said in a statement. "We hope to maintain our listing and look forward to presenting our case to the Panel."
