DOVER, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE:DDE) was notified by the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on January 18, 2016 that the average closing price of our common stock had fallen below $1.00 per share over a period of 30 consecutive trading days, which is the minimum average share price for continued listing on the NYSE under the NYSE Listed Company Manual.
Under NYSE rules, we have six months following receipt of the notification, subject to possible extension, to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement or be subject to delisting. We can also regain compliance at any time during the six-month cure period if our common stock has a closing share price of at least $1.00 on the last trading day of any calendar month during the period and also has an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30-trading day period ending on the last trading day of that month.
The notice has no immediate impact on the listing of our common stock, which will continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol “DDE” but will be assigned a “.BC” indicator by the NYSE to signify that we are not currently in compliance with NYSE continued listing standards.
We have 10 business days to notify the NYSE of our intent to cure this deficiency. We intend to so notify the NYSE on a timely basis.
This release contains or may contain forward-looking statements based on management’s beliefs and assumptions. Such statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause results to vary materially. Please refer to the Company’s SEC filings for a discussion of such factors.
