The indicator will be removed when the Company has regained compliance with all applicable continued listing standards.

In order to maintain its listing, the Company must submit a plan of compliance by November 15, 2015 addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide by April 15, 2016.  If the plan is accepted, the Company may be able to continue its listing but will be subject to periodic reviews by the Exchange. If the plan is not accepted or if it is accepted but the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards by April 15, 2016, or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the plan, the Exchange will initiate delisting procedures as appropriate. The Company intends to submit a compliance plan on or before the deadline set by the Exchange.
