If the NYSE accepts the plan, the Company will be subject to quarterly monitoring for compliance with the business plan. If the NYSE does not accept the business plan, the Company will be subject to suspension and delisting procedures.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the NYSE will promptly initiate suspension and delisting procedures with respect to a company that is determined to have an average market capitalization of less than $15 million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.
