DALLAS, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JRjr33, Inc., doing business as JRJR Networks [NYSE MKT: JRJR] today announced that on April 18, 2017, it received a letter from the NYSE notifying it that the Company was not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing of such report is a condition for the Company's continued listing on the NYSE MKT as required by Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE Company Guide.
The Company attributes the delay to fieldwork beginning later than planned as a result of its decision to change auditors and other professionals involved in assisting it with its filing process. The Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon as reasonably practicable after completion of the audit.
The Company must submit a plan to the NYSE by May 18, 2017 advising of actions it has taken or will take to regain compliance with the continued listed standards. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before October 18, 2017 by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC prior to that date. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-K by the NYSE's compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The letter from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant. The Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon as reasonably practicable after completion of the audit.
Until the Company files the Form 10-K, the Company's common stock will remain listed on the NYSE under the symbol "JRJR," but will be assigned a late filer ("LF") indicator to signify late filing status and the Company will be posted to the late filers list on the Listing Standards Filing Status page on the NYSE website.
