Daily Journal Corporation Receives Second Notice Regarding Non-Compliance With
NASDAQ Listing Rules
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daily Journal Corporation
(Nasdaq:DJCO) announced today that, due to the delayed filing of its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013, the
Company received, as expected, a notification letter from The NASDAQ Stock
Market stating that the Company is not in compliance with NASDAQ Stock Market
Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires the timely filing of all required periodic
financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The
NASDAQ letter was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures. The
Company previously received a notification letter from NASDAQ regarding the
Company's non-compliance with Rule 5250(c)(1) following its failure to timely
file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013.
As previously announced in the Company's current report on Form 8-K filed with
the SEC on February 11, 2014, Ernst & Young, LLP, the Company's registered
independent public accounting firm, has not yet completed its audit of the
Company's financial statements for fiscal 2013 or its audit of the Company's
internal control over financial reporting. At this point, the Company is still
awaiting the completion of the audits.
The Company has until March 17, 2014 to submit to NASDAQ a plan to regain
compliance with the NASDAQ rule. The Company intends to submit a plan by that
deadline. If NASDAQ accepts the Company's plan, NASDAQ may grant the Company
up to 180 days from the prescribed due date for the filing of the fiscal 2013
10-K, or until June 30, 2014, to regain compliance. In any event, the Company
intends to file the 10-K for fiscal 2013 and the 10-Q for the first quarter of
fiscal 2014 with the SEC, and to regain compliance with the NASDAQ rule, as
soon as possible after Ernst & Young, LLP completes the audits and its review
of the first quarter results.
