Section 3-Securities and Trading Markets
Item 3.01- Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On April 21, 2005 we received notice from the staff of the American Stock Exchange indicating that we do not meet certain of the Exchanges continued listing standards as set forth in Section 1003(a)(iii) of the AMEX Company Guide in that we have shareholders equity of less than $6,000,000 and have incurred losses during the last five fiscal years. Accordingly, the staff of the Exchange determined to proceed with the filing of an application to the Securities and Exchange Commission under Securities Exchange Act Rule 12d-2 to delist our common shares and warrants from the Exchange.
We appealed this determination to the Exchanges Committee on Securities. However, on June 29, 2005 we were notified that the Committee on Securities has determined to uphold the Exchanges staff determination and to proceed with the delisting of our common shares and warrants.
Our shares and warrants will not be listed or traded on the AMEX after July 14, 2005 but will be eligible for quotation on the OTC Bulletin Board maintained by the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. We will announce the new trading symbols for our common shares and warrants as soon as practicable.
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.
