MALVERN, PA — USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), a premier digital payment, consumer engagement and logistics service provider for the self-service retail market, recently announced that it has received a notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, as a result of its failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 (the “Annual Report”), the Company is noncompliant with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The notice provides that the Company has until November 1, 2018 to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, Nasdaq has discretion to grant up to 180 calendar days from the original non-compliance date, or until March 12, 2019, for the Company to regain compliance. The Company will submit a plan to regain compliance within the time period set forth in the notice. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to Nasdaq’s Hearing Panel.
The notification of noncompliance has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock or preferred stock, and the common stock and preferred stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbols “USAT” and “USATP”, respectively.
As previously announced and as reported by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company was unable to file its Annual Report within the prescribed time period due to an internal investigation being conducted by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors into certain of the Company’s contractual arrangements, including the accounting treatment, financial reporting and internal controls related to such arrangements. The investigation remains ongoing and, as such, the Company was not in a position to file the Annual Report within the 15 calendar day extension provided by the 12b-25 filing. The Audit Committee is working closely with its independent advisors to complete its investigation in as timely a manner as possible. The Company will not be in a position to file the Annual Report until the Audit Committee completes its investigation and the Company and its independent auditor assess the results of that investigation.
