On April3, 2017, the Company received a written notice from NYSE

2016. Under Section 802.01E, the NYSE will monitor the status of
the Companys late filing and related public disclosures for up to
a six-month period. If the Company does not file its annual
report and all other periodic reports with subsequent due dates
within six months from the filing due date of the late report,
the NYSE may, in its sole discretion, allow the Companys

depending on the specific circumstances, as outlined in the rule.
If the NYSE determines that an additional six-month trading
period is not appropriate, suspension and delisting procedures
will commence to Section804.00 of the Listed Company Manual. If
the NYSE determines that an additional trading period of up to
six months is appropriate and the Company fails to file its Form
10-K and Form10-Q filings by the end of that period, suspension
and delisting procedures will generally commence. Regardless of
the procedures described above, the NYSE may commence delisting
proceedings at any time during the period that is available to
complete the filing(s), if circumstances warrant.

practicable after it finalizes the Form 10-K with its independent
auditor and the Audit Committee completes its internal review
regarding certain accounting matters related to transactions
between the Company and Hospitality Supportive Systems, LLC,
