On April 17, 2017, Inventergy Global, Inc. (the “Company”) submitted a notice of appeal to The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) appealing Nasdaq’s determination that the Company no longer complies with the minimum $2,500,000 stockholders’ equity requirement (the “Stockholders’ Equity Requirement”) for continued listing on Nasdaq as set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b)(1). The appeal is scheduled to be heard before a Nasdaq hearings panel (the “Panel”) on June 1, 2017 and a decision will be rendered by the Panel sometime thereafter. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq while the appeal is pending. The Company believes that it will regain compliance with the Stockholders’ Equity Requirement by the time it completes the appeal process due to an expected gain on debt extinguishment following the completion of the requirements of the restructuring agreement the Company entered into in December 2016 with its lender, DBD Credit Funding LLC. These requirements, including the assignment of the Company’s patents to a special purpose entity, as disclosed in the Company’s recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, are expected to be completed prior to April 30, 2017.
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.
