SIFCO Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: SIF) (the “Company” or “SIFCO”) received a notice on February 22, 2023 from the NYSE American LLC ("NYSE American") indicating that, due to the delay in the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended December 31, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”), the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the NYSE American, and is subject to the procedures and requirements set forth in Section 1007 of the NYSE American Company Guide. Under the applicable provisions of the NYSE American Company Guide, until SIFCO files its Form 10-Q, its common stock will remain listed on the NYSE American under the symbol “SIF,” but will be assigned an ".LF" indicator to indicate late filing status. Five business days following the receipt of this noncompliance notice, SIFCO will be added to the list of NYSE American noncompliant issuers on the website and the indicator will be disseminated with the Company’s ticker symbol. The indicator will be removed once the Company has regained compliance with all applicable listing standards.
As noted in the Form 12b-25 filed on February 14, 2023, SIFCO has experienced delays in obtaining and compiling the information required in order to complete the preparation of its financial statements to be included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended December 31, 2022. This is primarily attributable to information access limitations experienced due to the cyber incident that occurred on December 30, 2022 (the “Cyber Incident”) and was reported by the Company on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 6, 2023 and further described by the Company on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 10, 2023. Accordingly, the Company was not able to complete the timely preparation, review and filing of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.
In order to maintain its listing, SIFCO will have a six-month period from February 22, 2023 to regain compliance with Section 1007 of the NYSE American Company Guide. The Company will be monitored by the NYSE American during this time, and the NYSE American will initiate delisting procedures if deemed appropriate.
The Company expects to complete the preparation, review and filing of the Form 10-Q within the timeframe prescribed under Section 1007 of the NYSE American Company Guide.
