As previously reported on August 13, 2014, Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp. (Company) received a written notice on August 7, 2014, from the staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that the Company was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(a)(3), which requires the Company to maintain a minimum of 300 public holders for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market (Nasdaq). On September 22, 2014, the Company submitted a plan to Nasdaq to regain compliance with the Minimum Holders Rule and ensure compliance with Nasdaq’s initial listing requirements at closing. On September 30, 2014, the Staff granted the Company an extension until February 3, 2015 to obtain stockholder approval of its initial business combination with School Bus Holdings Inc. (“SBH”) which, through its subsidiaries, conducts its business under the “Blue Bird” name (the “Business Combination”), consummate the Business Combination and demonstrate compliance with Nasdaq’s initial listing requirements. On February 4, 2015, the Company received a letter from the Staff stating that the Company had failed to consummate the Business Combination by February 3, 2015, and that, accordingly, the Staff has determined to initiate procedures to delist the Company’s securities from Nasdaq, unless the Company appeals such determination on or before February 11, 2015. The Company intends to appeal the Staff’s delisting determination in front of a hearings panel and the Company’s securities will continue to trade on Nasdaq while such appeal is pending. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in its appeal of the delisting determination.
