PENN VIRGINIA CORPORATION (NASDAQ:PVAC) Files An 8-K Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of ListingItem 3.01.
On March 6, 2018, Marc McCarthy, a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Penn Virginia Corporation (the “Company”), tendered notice of his resignation from the Board, effective immediately. The resignation did not result from any disagreement with the Company.
Mr. McCarthy’s resignation from the Board has also created a vacancy on the Audit Committee of the Board. As a result, the Audit Committee currently does not have at least three independent directors as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A).
On March 7, 2018, the Company notified Nasdaq of Mr. McCarthy’s resignation and the resulting non-compliance with Nasdaq Rule 5605(c)(2)(A). Nasdaq responded on March 8, 2018, with a notification letter confirming that the Company is currently out of compliance with Nasdaq audit committee requirements and advising that, to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(4), the Company will have until September 3, 2018 to cure the deficiency caused by Mr. McCarthy’s departure. The Company intends to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A) by appointing a new member of the Audit Committee within the applicable cure period.
