GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Receives Notice from NYSE Regulation Regarding Late Filing of Quarterly Report
GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB) (“GlobalSCAPE” or the “Company”), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today made an announcement concerning the Company’s noncompliance with the continued listing standards of NYSE American LLC (the “Exchange”).
For the reasons previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 7, 2017 and in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on August 14, 2017, the Company has not timely filed with the SEC its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 (the “Delayed Form 10-Q”). On August 22, 2017, the Company received an anticipated letter from NYSE Regulation notifying the Company of its noncompliance with the continued listing standards of the Exchange due to the Company’s failure to timely file the Delayed Form 10-Q with the SEC and that the Company is now subject to the procedures and requirements set forth in Section 1007 of the Exchange’s Company Guide (the “Company Guide”). The notification of noncompliance was issued pursuant to standard procedures of NYSE Regulation and the Exchange.
The Company is working diligently to file the Delayed Form 10-Q with the SEC as soon as practicable, which will result in regaining compliance with the continued listing standards of the Exchange.
NYSE Regulation has informed the Company that during the six-month period ending on February 22, 2018 (the “Initial Cure Period”), the Exchange will monitor the Company and the status of the Delayed Form 10-Q and any subsequent annual report or Form 10-Q that the Company fails to file by the applicable due date (“Subsequent Reports”) until the Delayed Form 10-Q and any Subsequent Reports have been filed with the SEC. The letter from NYSE Regulation states that if the Company fails to file the Delayed Form 10-Q and any Subsequent Reports within the Initial Cure Period, the Exchange may, in the Exchange’s sole discretion, allow the Company’s securities to be traded for up to an additional six-month period (the “Additional Cure Period”) depending on the Company’s specific circumstances. The letter states that if the Exchange determines that an Additional Cure Period is not appropriate, suspension and delisting procedures will commence in accordance with the procedures set out in Section 1010 of the Company Guide. The letter further states that the Exchange may, in its sole discretion, decide (i) not to afford the Company any Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, as the case may be, at all or (ii) at any time during the Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, to truncate the Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, as the case may be, and immediately commence suspension and delisting procedures if the Company is subject to delisting pursuant to any other provision of the Company Guide, including if the Exchange believes, in the Exchange’s sole discretion, that continued listing and trading of the Company’s securities on the Exchange is inadvisable or unwarranted in accordance with Sections 1001-1006 of the Company Guide.
The Company’s common stock will continue to be listed on the Exchange under the ticker symbol “GSB” but, beginning on August 29, 2017, a “.LF” indicator will be disseminated with the Company’s ticker symbol to signify the Company’s late filing status.
The Company is making this announcement in compliance with Section 1007 of the Exchange’s Company Guide, which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a notification of noncompliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards.
