HONG KONG, July 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPI Energy Co., Ltd. (“SPI Energy” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:SPI), a global clean energy market place for business, residential, government and utility customers and investors, today announced that it received a Delisting Determination (the “Determination”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. (“Nasdaq”) on June 30, 2017, indicating that as a result of failure of the Company to file its Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2016, unless the Company requests an appeal of the Determination, trading of the Company’s American depositary shares (“ADSs”) will be suspended from The Nasdaq Global Select Market at the opening of business on July 11, 2017, 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 Nasdaq.
The Company plans to timely submit a request for hearing to a Hearings Panel of Nasdaq (the “Panel”). A request for a hearing regarding a delinquent filing will stay the suspension of the Company’s ADSs for a period of 15 days from the date of the request. The Panel may or may not grant the Company a stay beyond that period based on the Company’s specific request for a further stay.
Hearings are typically scheduled to occur approximately 30-45 days after the date of the hearing request. At the hearing, the Company plans to present its plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq listing rules and to request the continued listing of its ADSs on Nasdaq pending such compliance. There can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company’s requests.
