DXP Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXPE): DXP Enterprises, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced that it has received a written notice (the “Notice”) on November 16, 2021, from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”), as a result of its failure to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”) in a timely manner. The Notice advised the Company that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements under the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”) because it has not timely filed the Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
As previously reported by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on November 12, 2021, the Company was unable to file its Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.
Nasdaq has informed the Company that, under Nasdaq rules, the Company has 60 calendar days from receipt of the Notice or until January 15, 2022, to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Rule. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, then Nasdaq may grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q to regain compliance. However, there can be no assurance that Nasdaq will accept the Company’s plan to regain compliance or that the Company will be able to regain compliance within any extension period granted by Nasdaq or maintain compliance with the other continued listing requirements set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, then the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq hearings panel. The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities.
The Company is working diligently to complete its Form 10-Q. The Company intends to file the Form 10-Q with the SEC as soon as possible.
