MILTON, GA, May 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Attis Industries Inc. (NASDAQ: ATIS) (the “Company” or “Attis”), a diversified innovation and technology holding company, today announced that The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) informed the Company by letter that it is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company did not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
