FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jamba, Inc. (Nasdaq:JMBA) (“Jamba” or the “Company”) today announced that as expected, on May 16, 2017 it received a standard notification letter from Nasdaq stating that because the Company has not yet filed its Form 10-K for the year ended January 3, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”) and its Form 10-Q for the period ended April 4, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”), the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As previously disclosed, Nasdaq provided the Company until May 22, 2017 to submit a plan to regain compliance and, if Nasdaq accepts the Company's plan, Nasdaq can grant the Company an additional compliance period until September 18, 2017 to regain compliance. The Company will submit the required plan of compliance by May 22, 2017 and will file its Form 10-K and Form 10-Q as soon as practicable. The Company anticipates that it will fully regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing requirements upon such filing of its Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.
As previously disclosed, as of May 15, 2017, the filing deadline for its Form 10-Q, the Company was not able to complete the preparation, review, and filing of its Form 10-Q due to the focus of the Company on the completion of its Form 10-K yet to be filed for its fiscal year ended January 3, 2017 and the dedication of Company resources toward such completion. The Company underwent significant changes in business model, leadership, key personnel, and relocation of corporate office in 2016. These changes resulted in a significant increase in non-routine transactions and impacted certain routine processes needed to effectively accumulate and present consolidated financial results.
The Company intends to file its Form 10-Q as soon as practicable, with timing contingent on completion of 2016 financial statements, their subsequent audit and completion of financial statements for the quarter ended April 4, 2017. While the Company continues to work expeditiously to complete its financials as soon as practicable, the Company does not anticipate filing the Form 10-Q within the five-day period provided by Rule 12b-25. In addition, as previously disclosed, the Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable upon completion of the audit.
The Notification Letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
