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

On September 15, 2009 , Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. (the “Company”), received a letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq") indicating that the bid price per share for the Company's common stock for the last 30 consecutive business days had closed below the $1.00 minimum bid price required for continued listing under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).
 
Pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has 180 calendar days, or until   March   15 , 20 10 , to re gain compliance with the rule. To regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock must close at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days .

If, by March 15, 2010, the Company does not regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule   5550(a)(2), it will receive written notification that its securities are subject to delisting. At that t ime, the Company may appeal the del isting determination to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
 
Alternatively, the Company may be eligible for an additional grace period if it meets the initial listing standards, with the exception of bid price, for the Nasdaq Capital Market. If it meets initial listing criteria , the Nasdaq staff will notify the Company that it has been granted an additional 180 calendar day compliance period.
