NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2017 /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-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017 (the "3Q Form 10-Q"), it has received a customary deficiency notice from the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Staff. The delayed filing is a result of additional time required for the Company to complete impairment testing of its goodwill and intangible assets in order to determine the amount of any non-cash intangible asset impairment charge on any of its brands, which the Company will reflect in its financial statements.
The NASDAQ letter states that the Company is not currently in compliance with NASDAQ Listing 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 January 16, 2018. 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 3Q Form 10-Q by January 16, 2018, and believes that submission of a plan will not be necessary.
