Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On June 22, 2016, Reed’s, Inc, a Delaware corporation (“Reed’s” or the “company”) received notice from NYSE MKT, LLC of the company’s failure to meet standards for continued listing in Sections 1003(a)(i), 1003(a)(ii) and 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide. The company previously qualified by exception to the listing rules based on meeting the trading standards of public float, number of shareholders and market capitalization. Recently, due to the decrease in the trading price of the company’s common stock, the company is not meeting the $50,000,000 market capitalization exception. The company has 18 months during which to meet the listing standards. The company’s plan to regain compliance is due to the NYSE compliance department by July 22nd. Last year’s supply disruptions have negatively affected the company’s financial performance, which, in management’s opinion, have had a direct effect on the stock trading price. The company’s plan will outline the current efforts to correct the supply chain issues and improve the company’s financial performance. The Company anticipates that the improved financial performance will result in a recovery of the stock price and the Company’s market capitalization. As a backup plan, the Company will consider alternative methods to meet the listing requirements.
If the plan is accepted but the company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards by December 22, 2017 or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the plan during the plan period, the Exchange staff will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate. The Company may appeal a staff delisting determination in accordance with Section 1010 and Part 12 of the Company Guide.
Concurrently with this Current Report on Form 8-K, the company is also releasing a press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
