Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

As previously reported, on July 24, 2020, DPW Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by the NYSE American (the “Exchange”) that the Company has failed to comply with Section 1003(a)(ii) and (iii) of the Exchange’s Company Guide (the “Listing Standards”), which requires that the Company maintain stockholders’ equity of no less than $6,000,000 because the Company has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in five of its most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2019. The Company had disclosed in its Form 10-Q filed for the fiscal period ended March 31, 2020 that its stockholders’ equity was approximately $2.5 million.

 

Under the applicable rules of the Exchange, the Company was required to submit a compliance plan by August 23, 2020 that demonstrates how it intends to regain compliance with the Listing Standards within 18 months of the receipt of the notice, or January 24, 2022.

 

On October 8, 2020, the Exchange notified the Company that it has been granted a listing extension until January 24, 2022 on the basis of the compliance plan recently submitted by the Company to regain compliance with the Listing Standards. The Company will be subject to periodic review by the Exchange during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the compliance plan or to regain compliance with the continued Listing Standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the Exchange.
