As previously disclosed, Hill International,Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “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”). The Notice states that the Company would have six months from August15, 2017 to file the Form10-Qwith the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and that, 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.

On February12, 2018, the Company received a letter from the NYSE which granted the Company’s request for a listing extension, which expires on July16, 2018, in order to file the Form10-Q as well as all subsequent delinquent filings (collectively, the “Delinquent Filings”) with the SEC. During that period, trading of the Company’s shares on theNYSEwill remain unaffected. If the Company does not file the Delinquent Filings by July16, 2018, theNYSEwill initiate suspension and delisting procedures. Should the Company require additional time, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an additional extension to August15, 2018. Theextensionis subject to review by theNYSEon an ongoing basis. The Company continues to work diligently to complete ongoing work on its financial restatement and expects to meet the timing requirements set forth by theNYSE.
