Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standa


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

As previously reported on August 29, 2012, The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") notified VirtualScopics, Inc., ("VirtualScopics") that the minimum bid price of its common stock over the previous 30 days had closed at less than $1.00 per share and, as a result, did not comply with Nasdaq's Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). VirtualScopics was provided with 180 days, or until February 26, 2013, to comply with the Rule. Subsequently, on February 26, 2013, VirtualScopics was provided an additional 180 calendar days' compliance period, or until August 26, 2013, to demonstrate compliance.

On August 29, 2013, VirtualScopics received a notice from Nasdaq that it had not regained compliance with Rule 5550(a)(2) and that its common stock will be delisted from the Nasdaq Capital Market. Unless VirtualScopics requests an appeal of this determination, trading of VirtualScopics' common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on September 9, 2013. In accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule Series 5800, VirtualScopics plans to appeal this determination. It has until September 5, 2013 to do so. If VirtualScopics timely appeals this decision, the suspension of the filing of VirtualScopics' common stock will be suspended pending the decision on the appeal. The Company also plans to continue working with Nasdaq during that time to regain compliance.

At the hearing, VirtualScopics will be asked to provide a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq rules. No assurance can be given that VirtualScopics will be able to present such a plan or to regain compliance during that period. VirtualScopics can regain compliance with the minimum bid price rule if the bid price of its common stock closes at $1.00 or higher for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the appeal period, although Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require VirtualScopics to maintain a bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a period in excess of ten consecutive business days before determining that it has demonstrated the ability to maintain long-term compliance. VirtualScopics effected a reverse stock split with a ratio of 1-for-10 on August 21, 2013. As of the date of this report, VirtualScopics' closing bid price has traded above $1.00 per share for nine consecutive business days.
