Majesco Entertainment has been given a 180 day grace period to bring its share price up in order to avoid being delisted by Nasdaq. The grace period ends on February 24, 2014, so hopefully the firm can raise its share price to at least $1 for 10 days in order to remain listed. The firm was threatened with delisting in March, after its stock dropped below the $1 minimum on January 14. The original deadline was set on August 28, and was the third time Majesco was faced with a possible delisting. Thanks, GI International.

In the wake of its decent but not spectacular quarterly and annual financial release yesterday, Zumba publisher Majesco’s stock price has taken a beating, dropping 29% over one day to just 74¢ per share. The stock drop was probably triggered by the publisher’s inability to provide guidance, but it will have to scurry to climb back up above NASDAQ’s minimum $1 price before a 90 day time limit results in a delisting. Majesco’s quite experienced in this sphere though.

Majecso has yet to comment on the matter. Thanks, GI International.
