Measurement Specialties Announces Receipt of Delisting Notice from American Stock Exchange
FAIRFIELD, N.J., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Measurement Specialties (Amex: MSS) today announced that on August 21, 2002, it received notice from the American Stock Exchange Staff indicating that the Company no longer complies with the Exchange's listing guidelines due to the Company's failure to furnish certain reports and information to shareholders, including its Annual Report for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2002, and its quarterly earnings release for its fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2002, and that its securities are, therefore, subject to being delisted from the Exchange. The Exchange's continued listing standards and the Company's listing agreement include the requirement that listed companies furnish shareholders with annual reports and release quarterly sales and earnings, pursuant to Sections 132 and 1003(d) of the Exchange's Company Guide. The Company has appealed this determination and requested a hearing before a committee of the Exchange. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company's request for continued listing will be granted. As previously announced by the Company, the Company's inability to make its required filings and releases of information has related to delays in its audit process, owing to the need to resolve complex accounting issues involving inventory valuation and the evaluation of capitalized overhead. On August 21, 2002, following its resolution of these accounting issues, the Company announced its determination to restate earnings for the 2001 fiscal year and the 2002 fiscal quarters. The Company, along with its auditors, is aggressively trying to complete all required filings prior to the conclusion of the delisting process, but cannot assure that it will succeed in doing so. In the event that the Company's request for continued listing is denied by the Exchange and that delisting of the Company's common stock occurs, the Company may seek sponsorship of its common stock for quotation in the Pink Sheets, but has not yet determined to do so.
