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

On March 17, 2022, Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notified Avalo Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price for the Company’s common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued inclusion on the Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Rule”).

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until September 13, 2022, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. If at any time before September 13, 2022, the bid price of the Company's common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide the Company with a written confirmation of compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule by September 13, 2022, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180-day compliance period. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the Bid Price Rule, and would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the bid price deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule when required, Nasdaq will provide written notification to the Company that its common stock is subject to delisting. At that time, the Company may appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq hearings panel.

The notice from Nasdaq has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock and its common stock will continue to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “AVTX”. The Company is currently evaluating its options for regaining compliance. There can be no assurance that the Company will regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule or maintain compliance with any of the other Nasdaq continued listing requirements.
