The online publisher had disclosed in documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission late last month it was under financial pressure due to mounting losses that had left it with $1.5 million in cash as of March 31.

The company's shares, which have been trading under $1 since October, could be delisted by the Nasdaq stock market by Aug. 13, further hindering its ability to raise cash to fund operations.
