Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

On August 22, 2017, Air T, Inc. (“AirT” or the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company had not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”). The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock and the common stock will continue to trade uninterrupted under its current trading symbol, “AIRT,” on the NASDAQ Stock Market.

The Company previously received a notice from NASDAQ on July 20, 2017 with respect to the Company’s noncompliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company had not yet filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”). The Company has not yet filed the Form 10-K.

Under the NASDAQ Listing Rules, the Company has until September 18, 2017 to submit a plan to NASDAQ as to how it plans to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s continued listing requirements. The Company intends to submit a compliance plan on or prior to that date. If NASDAQ accepts the Company’s plan, NASDAQ can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the Form 10-K’s due date, or until January 10, 2018, to regain compliance. The Company may regain compliance at any time during this 180-day period upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission the Form 10-K and the Form 10-Q, as well as all subsequent required periodic financial reports that are due within that period. If NASDAQ does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel before any change to listing occurs.

The Company cannot file the Form 10-Q until it completes and files the Form 10-K. The Company has not yet filed its Form 10-K as additional time has been required to fully consider the accounting treatment, including the appropriate attribution of income and loss, with respect to its acquisition of interests in Delphax Technologies Inc. in November of 2015, as further described in Item 3.01 of the Company’s Form 8-K filed on July 24, 2017, which information is incorporated by reference herein. The Company has not yet completed its consideration of all matters relevant to such accounting treatment.

The Company issued a press release on August 24, 2017 disclosing receipt of the Notice, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
