Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously reported, on November 13, 2018, Regulus Therapeutics Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Company’s stockholders’ equity as reported in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 did not satisfy the Nasdaq Global Market continued listing requirement set forth in Nasdaq Stock Market Rule 5450(b)(1)(A). Nasdaq subsequently approved the transfer of the Common Stock of the Company to the Nasdaq Capital Market and granted the Company an extension until May 13, 2019 to satisfy the Nasdaq Capital Market’s minimum stockholders’ equity requirement of $2.5 million (the “Stockholders’ Equity Requirement”). On May 10, 2019 the Company delivered a letter to Nasdaq providing notice of the initial closing on May 7, 2019 of a private placement financing and the Company’s belief that it has regained compliance with the Stockholders’ Equity Requirement. On May 13, 2019, the Company received a letter from Nasdaq confirming that Nasdaq has determined that the Company currently complies with the Stockholders’ Equity Requirement. Nasdaq will continue to monitor the Company’s ongoing compliance with the Stockholders’ Equity Requirement and, if the Company fails to evidence compliance upon filing of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, then the Company may be subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Capital Market.
