FRISCO, Texas, March 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (Nasdaq: ADUS), a provider of home care services, when announcing this week its estimated preliminary unaudited financial results also announced a delay in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the "Form 10-K"). As disclosed then, because of an inability to obtain prior auditor consent for inclusion of financial statements for the years ending December 31, 2017 and 2018, in connection with making adjustments thereto, the Company's current auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers has agreed, subject to completing their customary engagement acceptance and independence procedures, to independently re-audit the Company's financial statements for those years. In connection with the delayed Form 10-K, Addus yesterday received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") notifying Addus that it is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Nasdaq notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of Addus common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. Under Nasdaq's listing rules, Addus has 60 calendar days from the date of the letter to submit a plan to regain compliance. Addus will continue to work to finalize the re-audits as soon as practicable and expects to submit a plan within the proscribed time frame.
