Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On January 3, 2019, Horizon Global Corporation (the “Company”) was notified (the “Notice”) by the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that it was not in compliance with the continued listing standard set forth in Section 802.01B of the NYSE Listed Company Manual because the Company’s average market capitalization was less than $50 million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period and the stockholders’ equity of the Company was less than $50 million.
The Company plans to notify the NYSE that it intends to submit a plan to cure this deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirements. In order to avoid delisting under Section 802.01B, the Company has 45 days from the receipt of the Notice to submit a business plan advising the NYSE of definitive actions the Company has taken, or proposes to take, that would bring it into compliance with the market capitalization listing standards within 18 months of receipt of the Notice. If the NYSE accepts the plan, the Company’s common stock will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE during the 18-month cure period (“Plan Period”), subject to the Company’s compliance with other continued listing standards, and the Company will be subject to quarterly monitoring by the NYSE for compliance with the plan.
The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s common stock, which will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE during the Plan Period, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other listing requirements of the NYSE. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade under the symbol “HZN,” but will have an added designation of “.BC” to indicate that the Company is not currently in compliance with NYSE continued listing standards.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
