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

On February 19, 2016, NASDAQ notified the Company that it did not comply with the minimum $2,500,000 stockholders’ equity requirement for continued listing set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b). Based on materials submitted by the Company on April 4 and 16, 2016, NASDAQ granted the Company’s request for an extension until August 17, 2016 to comply with this requirement. The Company received a letter from NASDAQ dated August 18, 2016 stating that the NASDAQ staff determined that the Company did not meet the terms of the extension and that the Company may appeal the staff's determination to a Hearings Panel (the "Panel"). The Company will be requesting an appeal of this determination. The Company is continuing its plan for compliance. The Company's appeal of the NASDAQ’s determination to the Panel, pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rule 5800 Series will stay the suspension of the Company’s securities pending the Panel’s decision.
