NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - Inuvo®, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INUV), an Internet marketing and technology company specialized in marketing browser-based consumer applications, managing networks of website publishers and operating specialty websites, announced today that on November 30, 2012 it received a notice from the NYSE MKT indicating that the company is not in compliance with one of the NYSE MKT's continued listing standards.
Wally Ruiz, Inuvo's Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Although the Company's recent trends after merging with Vertro in March have been higher revenues, improved EBITDA and improved cash flow, the low balance of stockholders' equity that the company started with was difficult to overcome in the short run. As reported in the company's most recent Form 10-Q, stockholders' equity has dipped below the $6 million NYSE MKT threshold. We believe the positive trends in the business will enable us to meet the stockholders' equity requirement before the deadline and have prepared and will file a plan with the NYSE MKT which we anticipate will be satisfactory and accepted."
The notice from the NYSE MKT indicated that the company is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide, specifically, with stockholders' equity of less than $6,000,000 and net losses in its five most recent fiscal years. The company was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan of compliance to the NYSE MKT by December 31, 2012 that demonstrates the company's ability to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide by December 2, 2013. If the company does not submit a plan, or if the plan is not accepted by the NYSE MKT, the Company will be subject to delisting procedures as set forth in Section 1010 and Part 12 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide.
