Shares of clinical-stage pharmaceutical company Brickell Biotech (NASDAQ:BBI) jumped over 40% to highs of $1.11 a day after the company was warned that it is at risk of being removed from the public market by Nasdaq…

Today’s move in the company’s stock price may be in response to the listing. Its shares surged at the open, above the $1 threshold, before retracing. They are now trading at $0.8638, up 8.16% on Tuesday.
Some positive news that may encourage investors is that Brickell and its Japanese development partner, Kaken Pharmaceutical, recently reported positive results from its Phase 3 clinical trial in June.
The company expects a decision on whether they can sell the treatment in Japan later this year.
