Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Notice of Delisting or Fai


Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On March 18, 2013, the Company issued a press release announcing its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.

The information furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of this report, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, shall not be considered "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of such section, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into future filings by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, unless the Company expressly sets forth in such future filing that such information is to be considered "filed" or incorporated by reference therein.



Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On March 19, 2013, the Company received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq") informing the Company that because the closing bid price for the Company's common stock listed on Nasdaq was below $1.00 for 30 consecutive business days, the Company does not comply with the minimum closing bid price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5550(a)(2).

The letter further provides that, under the Nasdaq rules, the Company has a 180-day compliance period, or until September 16, 2013, to regain compliance with Nasdaq's listing requirements by having the closing bid price of its common stock be at least $1.00 for at least 10 consecutive trading days. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance by September 16, 2013, the Company may be granted an additional 180-day compliance period, provided that the Company (i) meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for the Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and (ii) provides written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period, by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary. However, if it appears to the Nasdaq staff that the Company will not be able to cure the deficiency, or if the Company is otherwise not eligible, the Nasdaq staff will notify the Company that its common stock will be subject to delisting. In the event that the Company does not regain compliance within the requisite time period, it would have the right to appeal a delisting determination. Failure to maintain listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market may have a material adverse effect on the price and/or liquidity of the Company's common stock.

During this process, shares of the Company's common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market.
