AUTHENTIDATE HOLDING CORP FILES (8-K) Disclosing Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

June 25, 2014



Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or

Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On June 19, 2014, Authentidate Holding Corp. (the "Company") received a staff deficiency letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") notifying the Company that for the past 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price per share of its common stock was below the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Bid Price Rule"). As a result, the Company was notified by Nasdaq that it is not in compliance with the Bid Price Rule. Nasdaq has provided the Company with 180 calendar days, or until December 16, 2014, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. This notification has no immediate effect on the Company's listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market or on the trading of the Company's common stock.

To regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the 180 day grace period. If the Company's common stock does not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule during this grace period, it will be eligible for an additional grace period of 180 calendar days provided that the Company satisfies Nasdaq's continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, other than the minimum bid price requirement, and provides written notice to Nasdaq of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second grace period. If the Company does not regain compliance during the initial grace period and is not eligible for an additional grace period, Nasdaq will provide written notice that the Company's common stock is subject to delisting from The Nasdaq Capital Market. In that event, the Company may appeal such determination to a hearings panel. There can be no guarantee that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
