As previously reported by the Company, on May 7, 2012, the Company received a letter from NASDAQ, pursuant to which the Company was not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(b), which requires the Company to have a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders' equity or $35,000,000 market value of listed securities or $500,000 of net income from continuing operations for the most recently completed fiscal year or two of the three most recently completed fiscal years. On June 20, 2012 and July 5, 2012, the Company provided NASDAQ with a specific plan to achieve and sustain compliance with the NASDAQ Capital Market listing requirements, including an estimated time frame for completion of the plan.
On July 17, 2012, the Company received a letter from NASDAQ, pursuant to which the NASDAQ staff had determined to deny the Company's request for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, since, in the NASDAQ staff's opinion, the Company did not provide a definitive plan evidencing its ability to achieve and sustain compliance with the NASDAQ continued listing requirements. As a result, trading of the Company's shares will be suspended on the NASDAQ at the opening of business on July 26, 2012, and a Form 25-NSE will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which will remove the Company's securities from listing and registration on the NASDAQ. When delisted, the Company's securities may be immediately eligible to trade on the OTC Bulletin Board or in the Pink Sheets.
