PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, today announced that, as a result of its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”), it has received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.
The reason for the delay is that the Company is continuing to compile information regarding, and complete the proper accounting and related tax treatment of, the sale of the Company’s Construction Claims Group which was completed during the second quarter of 2017, and to assess the Company’s accounting for comprehensive income (loss) in conjunction with the accounting for the sale of the Construction Claims Group. The Company is currently uncertain as to the scope or size of any adjustment that may be required from its assessment of comprehensive income (loss). The Company will not be able to file the Form 10-Q until the compilation, accounting and assessment are completed. The Company will file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable.
The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company will have six months from August 15, 2017 to file the Form 10-Q with the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before that date by filing the Form 10-Q with the SEC.
