Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
As previously disclosed in Item 3.01 of Form 8-K filed on July 21, 2008, Focus Enhancements (the “Company”) received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market notifying the Company that its common stock market value of listed securities had been below the minimum $35,000,000 required for continued inclusion as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3)(B) and that its securities would be delisted from The Nasdaq Capital Market on July 30, 2008, unless the Company appealed its delisting to the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel.
The Company made a request for a hearing with the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel, and on July 28, 2008, the Company was notified that its request to appear before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel has been approved and that a hearing has been scheduled for September 4, 2008. Accordingly, the delisting of the Company’s securities has been stayed pending the Nasdaq Hearings Panel’s decision. The Company intends to submit materials and attend the hearing in support of its appeal. There can be no assurance, however, that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel will grant a request for continued listing.
If at any point before the September 4, 2008 hearing, the Company regains compliance with all criteria for continued listing and can evidence an ability to sustain compliance with the listing requirements over the long term, the Company must notify its Nasdaq Listing Analyst and the Nasdaq Office of General Counsel. If the Nasdaq Listing Analyst determines that the deficiency is moot, the Nasdaq Hearings Department will advise the Company by letter that its hearing is cancelled.
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.
