SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation (NYSE: EVC) ("Entravision" or the "Company"), a diversified global media and advertising technology company serving Latino consumers, today announced that on April 3, 2019 it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company was not in compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, because the Company did not timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (its "Form 10-K") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on or prior to the due date thereof or by the extended filing due date provided by Rule 12b-25. Such notices are routinely issued by the NYSE when there are late filings with the SEC. The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE's rules, the Company has six months from April 2, 2019 to file its Form 10-K with the SEC.
As previously disclosed by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on March 18, 2019, as a result of the Company's expanding business operations and geographical scope, including related to the acquisition of Headway and other digital businesses, the Company experienced unexpected delays in its completion of the audit of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018.
The Company continues to work diligently to complete its audit and Form 10-K and does not currently anticipate this delay will be lengthy. The Company intends to file its Form 10-K and report its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 as soon as practicable.
