|Item 3.01||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On August 29, 2017, Inventergy Global, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that it had determined that the Company had failed to comply with Nasdaq’s shareholder approval requirement set forth in Listing Rule 5635(d), which requires shareholder approval of any issuance of shares of common stock greater than 20% of a company’s outstanding shares, as a result of the Exchange Right and Leak-Out Agreement, dated July 26, 2017, entered into between the Company and the holders of its Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, as previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on July 27, 2017. The notice provided that this matter will serve as an additional basis for delisting the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq.
After careful consideration and in connection with the previous delisting notices received by the Company from Nasdaq as previously disclosed in the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company on November 25, 2016 and April 13, 2017, the Company has withdrawn its appeal of the Nasdaq Hearings Panel decision, dated July 5, 2017, pursuant to which it determined to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq. As a result of the forgoing, the Company has decided not to seek stockholder approval of a reverse stock split of the Company’s capital stock at its 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, which the Company currently expects to hold in December 2017.
The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the electronic quotation service operated by OTC Markets Group Inc. (www.otcmarkets.com) under its current ticker symbol “INVT.”
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.
