LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ImmunoCellular Therapeutics, Ltd. ("ImmunoCellular" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT: IMUC) today announced that the NYSE MKT LLC (the "NYSE MKT") has accepted the Company's plan to regain compliance with the exchange's continued listing standards set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i), 1003(a)(ii) and 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the "Company Guide").
As previously reported by the Company in a Form 8-K filed on June 29, 2017, the Company was previously notified by NYSE MKT that it was not in compliance with the stockholders' equity continued listing standard as set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i), 1003(a)(ii) and 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide, which require stockholders' equity of $6.0 million or more if the Company has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in its five most recent fiscal years. In order to maintain its listing, the Company submitted a plan of compliance addressing how it intends to regain compliance and the plan has been accepted by the NYSE MKT. The Company has been granted until December 23, 2018, subject to periodic review by the NYSE MKT for compliance with the initiatives set forth in the plan, to regain compliance. If the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards by December 23, 2018, or if it does not make progress consistent with the plan during the plan period, the NYSE MKT staff may initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.
The NYSE MKT notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company's common stock, which will continue to trade on the NYSE MKT exchange under the symbol "IMUC," with the added designation of ".BC" to indicate that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE MKT's listing standards, subject to periodic review by the NYSE MKT.
