The Company has until December 15, 2014, to submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to the above delinquent reports. The Nasdaq Listing Rules provide that the Staff can grant the Company an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the filing's due date, or until April 13, 2015 to regain compliance if Nasdaq accepts the Company's plan of compliance.
As previously reported by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 14, 2014, the filing of the Company's Form 10-Q has been delayed as a result of the change of the Company's auditor.
