NEW YORK, March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Iconix Brand Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICON) (the "Company"), announced today that as a result of the previously disclosed delayed filing of its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the "2015 Form 10-K"), it has received a customary deficiency notice from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Staff. The delayed filing is related to the Company's anticipated financial restatement, which was previously disclosed on February 18, 2016. The Company expects to conclude its restatement and anticipates filing its 2015 Form 10-K by March 30, 2016, which would allow the Company to regain full compliance with NASDAQ.
The NASDAQ letter states that the Company is not currently in compliance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5250(c)(1). The letter requests that the Company submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to the NASDAQ's continued listing standards no later than May 16, 2016. If the Company fails to provide a timely plan or the NASDAQ staff determines the Company's plan is insufficient to regain compliance, the Company may be subject to delisting from the NASDAQ Stock Market. However, the Company anticipates that it will file the 2015 Form 10-K by March 30, 2016, and believes that submission of a plan will not be necessary.
