In addition, the Notice indicates that the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because its annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the “Annual Report”) was not filed on a timely basis with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Pursuant to the Notice, the Company must submit an update to its original plan to regain compliance to Nasdaq (the “Updated Compliance Plan”) no later than June 6, 2017. Since the Annual Report was delinquent prior to the filing of the Form 6-K, if Nasdaq accepts the Updated Compliance Plan, the Nasdaq staff exception to allow the Company to regain compliance will be limited to up to 180 calendar days from the original due date of the Form 6-K, or June 29, 2017.
The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s securities. The Company plans to submit the Updated Compliance Plan as soon as practicable within the prescribed time period.
