Globalscape’s Compliance Plan Accepted By NYSE Regulation
GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, announced today that on February 22, 2018, the Company was notified by NYSE Regulation that it has accepted the Company’s plan to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the Company Guide (the “Company Guide”) of NYSE American LLC (the “Exchange”) by June 15, 2018, subject to periodic review by NYSE Regulation for compliance with the initiatives set forth in the plan.
The notification from NYSE Regulation specified that the Company is not in compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the Company Guide as a result of the Company’s failure to timely file its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 (the “Delayed First Quarter 10-Q”), its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 (the “Delayed Second Quarter 10-Q”), its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 (the “Delayed Third Quarter 10-Q”) and its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the “Delayed 10-K”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). If the Company is not in compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards by August 22, 2018, the maximum time allowed under the Company Guide, or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the plan during the plan period, the staff of the Exchange will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.
As previously disclosed in its Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 28, 2017 and September 13, 2017, in the event that the Company failed to regain compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards by February 22, 2018, the Exchange could allow the Company’s securities to be traded for up to an additional six-month period. In anticipation of being unable to regain compliance by February 22, 2018 and in order to maintain its listing, the Company submitted a plan of compliance on February 8, 2018, addressing how it intends to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the Exchange by June 15, 2018 through the filing of an amended Delayed First Quarter 10-Q, the Delayed Second Quarter 10-Q, the Delayed Third Quarter 10-Q and an amended Delayed 10-K with a reissued audit report with the SEC. The Company’s plan was accepted by NYSE Regulation on February 22, 2018.
The notice of acceptance from NYSE Regulation has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s common stock, which will continue to trade on the Exchange under the symbol “GSB”, subject to periodic review by NYSE Regulation. The listing of the Company’s common stock on the Exchange is being continued pursuant to an extension during the plan period. As previously disclosed, a “.LF” indicator is being disseminated with the Company’s ticker symbol to signify the Company’s late filing status.
