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

On June 5, 2018,  Cherokee Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”), notifying the Company that it no longer meets Nasdaq’s requirements for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Bid Price Rule”) because, for a period of 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company’s common stock has not closed at or above the minimum of $1.00 per share. The letter does not impact the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq Global Market at this time, and the Company’s common stock remains listed thereon under the symbol CHKE.

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has been provided a compliance period of 180 calendar days, or until December 3, 2018, in which to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. To regain compliance, the Company’s common stock must have a closing bid price of at least $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during this 180-day compliance period. If the Company has not regained compliance with the Bid Price Rule by December 3, 2018, then the Company may be eligible for a second 180-day compliance period if it (i) submits an application to transfer its listing from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market, (ii) meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market (with the exception of the bid price requirement), and (iii) provides written notice to Nasdaq of its intention to cure the Bid Price Rule noncompliance during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. If it appears to Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the Bid Price Rule noncompliance during this second compliance period or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, or if the Company obtains the second compliance period but is unable to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule during the second compliance period, then the staff would provide notice to the Company that its securities would be subject to delisting, in which case the Company could appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
