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

On , Heat Biologics, Inc. (the "Company") received written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") that it has been granted an extension until to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement (as defined below).

As previously reported, on , the Company received written notice from the NASDAQ notifying the Company that for the preceding 30 consecutive business days ( through ), the Company's common stock did not maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 ("Minimum Bid Price Requirement") per share as required by NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). The notice had no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's common stock and the common stock continued to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "HTBX."

In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company was given a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until , to regain compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). Compliance could have been achieved automatically and without further action if the closing bid price of the Company's stock was at or above $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days at any time during the initial 180-day compliance period, in which case NASDAQ would consider the matter to be closed.



The Company did not achieve compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by ; however, NASDAQ determined that the Company was eligible for an additional 180 calendar days, or until , to regain compliance. NASDAQ's determination to grant the extension was based on the Company meeting the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, with the exception of the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, and the Company's written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.

If at any time during the second compliance period the closing bid price of the Company's common stock is at least $1 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, NASDAQ will provide written confirmation of compliance and this matter will be closed. If the Company chooses to implement a reverse stock split, it must complete the split no later than ten business days prior to the expiration date in order to timely regain compliance. If compliance cannot be demonstrated by , NASDAQ will provide written notification that the Company's common stock will be delisted. At that time, the Company may appeal NASDAQ's determination to a Hearings Panel.

The Company issued a press release on announcing the grant of the extension by NASDAQ. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1
