Intrepid Announces Return to Compliance Under NYSE Listing Standards; Reverse Stock Split

DENVER, CO, June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrepid Potash Inc. (NYSE:IPI) (“Intrepid”) today announced that on June 2, 2020 it received written notice from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”)  stating that Intrepid had regained compliance with the applicable NYSE minimum share price requirement.

On April 17, 2020, Intrepid previously received notice from the NYSE that its stock price had fallen out of compliance with NYSE continued listing standards. Under NYSE listing standards, Intrepid could regain compliance at any time during the original 6 month cure period if its common stock had a closing price of at least $1.00 per share on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period and an average closing price of at least $1.00 per share of common stock over the 30-trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month. Since the original notice from the NYSE, Intrepid’s stock price improved and closed on Friday, May 29, 2020 at $1.23 per share, with an average closing price exceeding $1.00 per share over the previous 30 trading days. Accordingly, Intrepid has regained compliance with the NYSE minimum share price requirement and the matter is now closed.

As approved by its Board of Directors, Intrepid is pursuing a reverse stock split. Specific terms of the reverse split will depend on a variety of factors at the time of the reverse split, including Intrepid’s stock price, and implementation of a reverse stock split will be subject to stockholder approval.
