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

On April 20, 2017, DGSE Companies, Inc. (the Company) was
notified by the NYSE MKT LLC (the MKT) that the Company continues
to be in non-compliance with certain MKT continued listing
standards relating to stockholders equity. Specifically, the
Company is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the
NYSE MKT Company Guide (requiring stockholders equity of $6.0
million or more if it has reported losses from continuing
operations and/or net losses in its five most recent fiscal
years) and Section 1003(a)(ii) (requiring stockholders equity of
$4.0 million or more if it has reported losses from continuing
operations and/or net losses in its four most recent fiscal
years). As of December 31, 2016, the Company had stockholders
equity of approximately $5.9 million and net losses in its five
most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2016.

As previously reported, the Company has submitted a plan to
regain compliance with MKT listing standards. If the Company does
not regain compliance with those standards by October 12, 2017,
or does not make progress consistent with the plan, the MKT staff
may commence delisting proceedings.

The notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Companys
common stock, which will continue to trade under the symbol DGSE
with an added designation of .BC to indicate that the Company is
not in compliance with the MKTs listing standards. If the common
stock ultimately were to be delisted for any reason, it could (1)
reduce the liquidity and market price of the common stock and (2)
negatively impact the ability of the Company to conduct equity
financings and access the public capital markets.

As required under by the MKT, the Company issued a press release
on April 26, 2017, announcing that it had received the notice of
noncompliance. A copy of this press release is attached as
Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

The exhibits listed in the following Exhibit Index are filed as
part of this Current Report on Form 8-K.
