CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc. (“Dentsply Sirona” or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XRAY) received written notification from The NASDAQ Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) on May 12, 2022 that the Company is no longer in compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules since the Company has not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 (the “Quarterly Report”). Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires Nasdaq-listed companies to timely file all periodic reports.
The Company has up to 60 days to either cure the deficiency or to submit a plan to Nasdaq showing how it intends to regain compliance. If the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant an extension of the grace period for shares of the Company’s common stock to remain listed for up to 180 calendar days from the Quarterly Report’s due date to regain compliance.
This notice from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market. As previously reported by the Company in its Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on May 10, 2022, the Company was unable to file the 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 within the prescribed period because the Company’s Audit and Finance Committee, together with independent outside counsel, is conducting an investigation concerning the Company’s use of incentives to sell products to distributors in the third and fourth quarters of 2021, whether those incentives were appropriately accounted for and whether the impact of those sales was adequately disclosed in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the Commission. The Company expects to file the Quarterly Report as soon as practicable.
