Pareteum Receives Listing Extension from Nasdaq
NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pareteum Corporation (Nasdaq: TEUM), a global cloud communications platform company, announced today that it has received written notification from the Hearings Panel (the "Panel") of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") stating that the Panel agreed to extend the deadlines by which the Company would be required to cure certain previously disclosed deficiencies under Nasdaq's continued listing rules.
As previously disclosed, the Company has not yet filed with the SEC its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2019, its amended Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2018, its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 or its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020 (collectively, the "Delinquent Filings"). The Company was unable to timely file the Delinquent Filings due to its previous accounting evaluation and internal investigation into the cause of the accounting errors. Also, as previously disclosed, the Company is not in compliance with the $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, as set forth in Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the "Bid Price Rule").
The Panel had previously granted the Company an exception with respect to the Delinquent Filings and the Bid Price Rule noncompliance, so long as it filed certain of the Delinquent Filings on October 15, 2020 and certain of them on October 30, 2020, and that it regained compliance with the Bid Price Rule by December 31, 2020. In the Letter, the Panel extended the Company's exception, provided that:
