DOWNERS GROVE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (“Roadrunner” or the “company”) (NYSE: RRTS), a leading asset-right transportation and asset-light logistics service provider, announced today that, as anticipated, it has received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that Roadrunner is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria set forth in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of Roadrunner’s failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”). Such notices are routinely issued by the NYSE when there are late filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
As previously disclosed by Roadrunner, in late January 2018 Roadrunner completed a restatement of previously reported financial results and filed an amended Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2015, amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q/A for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2016, and an Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. On March 30, 2018, Roadrunner filed its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2017, June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2017. Roadrunner is working diligently to complete the steps necessary to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable, and expects to file the Form 10-K during the second quarter of 2018.
The NYSE informed Roadrunner that, under the NYSE’s rules, Roadrunner has until October 3, 2018 to file the Form 10-K with the SEC. Roadrunner can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before that deadline by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC. If Roadrunner fails to file the Form 10-K by the NYSE’s compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for Roadrunner to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances.
