|Item 3.01.||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
As previously reported, on December 17, 2019 the staff of NYSE Regulation (the “Staff”), on behalf of NYSE American LLC (the “Exchange”), commenced proceedings to delist the Company’s common stock from the Exchange. The Company appealed to the NYSE Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”) of the Exchange’s Committee for Review, and such hearing regarding the Company’s continued listing was held on February 13, 2020.
On March 9, 2020, the NYSE Office of General Counsel notified the Company that the Panel had determined to affirm the Staff’s decision to delist the Company’s shares from NYSE. The Company subsequently appealed to the full Committee for Review (the “Committee”), and such hearing regarding the Company’s continued listing was held on May 7, 2020. On May 15, 2020, the Committee notified the Company that it had affirmed the Panel’s determination, subject to a call for review by one or more directors of the Exchange Board of Directors, which by letter dated May 20, 2020 was declined.
On May 21, 2020, the Staff filed a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to remove the Company’s common stock from listing and registration on the Exchange. The delisting will be effective 10 days following the date the Form 25 is filed.
The Company is continuing to review its options to list with other exchanges and other available markets for the trading of the Company’s common stock and will continue filing its periodic reports with the SEC.
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, thereunto duly authorized.
