HERNDON, Va., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- SteelCloud, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCLD), a leading integrator of mobility computing appliance solutions, today announced that on January 5, 2010, the Company was notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market (Nasdaq) that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel has determined to delist the Company's securities from Nasdaq and trading in the Company's securities will be suspended effective as of the open of trading on Thursday, January 7, 2010. As previously reported by the Company on October 8, 2009, the Nasdaq Hearing Panel had given the Company until January 4, 2010, the full extent of the Panel's authority, to evidence at least $2.5M of stockholders' equity.
"Although I have communicated that it was the Company's intention to take reasonable steps to keep our Nasdaq listing, moving to the over the counter will save us money in fees and regulatory expenses," said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud's President and CEO. "Unfortunately, FINRA's approval process, which began shortly after our shareholder meeting in October, was not concluded until the last week in December, causing us to miss our expected financing window. With FINRA's verbal no objection, we intend to proceed with the offering pursuant to the registration statement on Form S-1 which we filed with the SEC on April 22, 2009 and have subsequently amended. We expect to file the final amendment to our S-1 with the SEC shortly after the scheduled release of our fiscal 2009 results at the end of this month."
While the Company's shares will be quoted on the Pink Sheets on Thursday morning, the Company has begun the process of having its common stock quoted on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board market and does not expect any significant delays in obtaining such quotation.
The foregoing description of the registration statement on Form S-1 is included only for informational purposes in connection with this Press Release and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities of SteelCloud. SteelCloud cannot offer any assurance that any financing will be completed, and, accordingly, cannot be certain that it will receive any amount of proceeds from such financing. Additionally, SteelCloud cannot offer any assurance that its securities will be quoted on the OTCBB, or, even if quoted, that there will be a public market for such securities.
