CONCORD, Mass., June 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) today announced that on June 25, 2019, the company received notice from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) that because the company failed to maintain a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders’ equity, and since the company does not meet the alternatives of market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations, the company no longer complies with Listing Rule 5550(b) for continued listing. Pursuant to such notice, the company will have until July 8, 2019 to submit a plan to Nasdaq to regain compliance; if the plan is accepted, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 days from the date of the notice to regain compliance.
As a result of the recent restatement of the financial statements of the Company, TCC has been out of compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement since March 31, 2018 and has remained out of compliance since such time. The company is currently working on alternatives to raise equity, and will provide information to Nasdaq in its plan to regain compliance as to the expected timing of such events, although at this time the company does not have an estimate as to when that may occur.
Also on June 25, 2019, TCC received notice from Nasdaq that based on the filing of its delinquent annual and quarterly reports on June 24, 2019, the company had regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requiring the company to timely file all required periodic reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Nasdaq Staff has determined that the company now complies with such rule.
