On June 14, 2018, Christopher & Banks Corporation (the "Company") received written notice (the "Notice") from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") that it is not in compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Section 8 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual. The Company is considered below the criteria established by the NYSE for continued listing because (i) its average market capitalization has been less than $50 million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period, and at the same time its stockholders' equity was slightly less than $50 million; and (ii) its 30-day average closing price was below $1.00.
Consistent with the provisions of the Notice, the Company plans to notify the NYSE by June 28, 2018 of its intent to submit a plan that demonstrates its ability to bring the Company into conformity with the continued listing standards within the applicable cure period.
In accordance with NYSE procedures, the Company intends to submit a continued listing plan to the NYSE (the "Plan") by July 29, 2018. Upon receipt of the Plan, the NYSE will have 45 days to review and determine whether the Company has made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to return to conformity with the relevant standards within the applicable cure period. The NYSE will either accept the Plan, at which time the Company would be subject to ongoing monitoring for compliance with the Plan, or the NYSE will not accept the Plan and the Company would be subject to suspension and delisting procedures. During the applicable cure period, the Company's shares will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE, subject to its continued compliance with the Plan and other NYSE continued listing standards. The Company can provide no assurances that it will be able to satisfy any of the steps outlined above and maintain a listing of its shares.
The receipt of the Notice does not affect the Company's ongoing business operations or its reporting requirements with the Securities and Exchange Commission under applicable federal securities laws.
