Campus Crest Provides Notice on Form 10-Q Filing Delay

Aug 24, 2015, 18:00 ET from Campus Crest Communities, Inc.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As previously disclosed in its Form 12b-25 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), Campus Crest Communities, Inc. (NYSE: CCG) (the "Company"), today confirmed that the Company will be delayed in filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Campus Crest expects to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q in the near-term and as quickly as practicable.  As the Company noted in a Form 8-K filed today, the delay is attributable to the significance and complexity of the recently completed (effective January 30, 2015) Copper Beech Townhome Communities transaction, most notably the need to account for the acquired Copper Beech interests as joint ventures through the closing date and as a combination of joint ventures and wholly-owned interests for the balance of the quarter, and the additional time required to complete the consolidation for the previous quarter.  The Company also noted in its Form 8-K that the extensive effort required to complete the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 disrupted the normal timing for closing the books for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  The Company is in a quiet period until this filing is made with the SEC.

As a result of the filing delay, the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") provided formal notification to the Company on August 18, 2015 that the Company is not currently in compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria set forth in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.  Such notices are routinely issued by the NYSE in situations when there are late filings with the SEC.

Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months from August 17, 2015, subject to ongoing evaluation, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  Until the Company files its Quarterly Report, the Company expects that its common stock, which is listed on the NYSE under the symbol "CCG," will be assigned an "LF" indicator to signify late filing status. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards at any time during this six-month period once it files its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 with the SEC. If the Company fails to file its quarterly report within such six-month period, the NYSE may, in its sole discretion, allow the Company's common stock to trade for up to an additional six months depending on specific circumstances as outlined in the rule. It is expected that the Company would need to submit an official request to the NYSE for the NYSE's consideration at the appropriate time.

Although Campus Crest is working diligently to complete its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and currently expects to complete and file the Form 10-Q within six months of its due date, no assurance can be given that the Form 10-Q will be filed within such period, or that the NYSE would allow the Company's securities to trade for up to an additional six months.
