Story continues below

On August15, 2017, Hill International,Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section802.01Eof the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form10-Qfor the fiscal quarter ended June30, 2017 (the “Form10-Q”).

As reported by the Company in its Form12b-25filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August10, 2017, the Company was unable to file the Form10-Qwithin the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. The extension period provided under Rule12b-25expired on August14, 2017. The reason for the delay is that the Company is continuing to compile information regarding, and complete the proper accounting and related tax treatment of, the sale of the Company’s Construction Claims Group which was completed during the second quarter of 2017, and to assess the Company’s accounting for comprehensive income (loss) in conjunction with the accounting for the sale of the Construction Claims Group. The Company is currently uncertain as to the scope or size of any adjustment that may be required from its assessment of comprehensive income (loss). The Company will not be able to file the Form10-Q until the compilation, accounting and assessment are completed.

The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company will have six months from August15, 2017 to file the Form10-Qwith the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirements at any time before that date by filing the Form10-Qwith the SEC. The Company will file the Form10-Qas soon as practicable. If the Company fails to file the Form10-Q before the NYSE’s compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The letter from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.
