HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc. (NYSE Amex: FOH) ("Company") today announced that the NYSE Amex LLC (the "Exchange") has accepted the Company's plan to regain compliance with certain continued listing standards as set forth in Part 10 of the Exchange's Company Guide by May 30, 2013 and will continue to list the Company's common stock on the NYSE Amex during the extension period.
As previously announced, on November 30, 2011, the Company received a notice from the Exchange indicating that the Company was not in compliance with (a) Section 1003(a)(i) of the Company Guide, resulting from shareholders' equity at July 30, 2011 of less than $2 million and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of its three most recent fiscal years and (b) Section 1003(a)(ii) of the Company Guide with shareholders' equity of less than $4 million and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in three of its four most recent fiscal years. The Company was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan to regain compliance and on January 6, 2012 presented its plan to the Exchange.
On February 3, 2012, the Exchange notified the Company that it had accepted the Company's plan of compliance and granted the Company an extension until May 30, 2013 to evidence compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) and (ii) of the Company Guide. The Company will be subject to periodic review by the Exchange Staff during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the Plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Exchange initiating delisting proceedings pursuant to Section 1009 of the Company Guide.
The Company's "FOH" trading symbol will continue to bear the extension ".BC" to denote non-compliance until the Company regains compliance with the Exchange's continued listing requirements.
