Form 8-K for LIME ENERGY CO.


30-Aug-2013

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; T


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

Minimum Bid Price Deficiency

As previously disclosed, on August 29, 2012, Lime Energy Co. (the "Company") received a letter from NASDAQ, notifying the Company that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company's common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement ("Minimum Bid Price") for continued inclusion on The NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ") based on Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the "Minimum Bid Price Deficiency"). NASDAQ granted the Company two consecutive grace periods of 180 days each to remedy the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency, the second of which expired on August 26, 2013.

On August 27, 2013, the Company received a letter from NASDAQ, notifying the Company that the Company had not regained compliance with Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) and that the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency may serve as an additional basis for delisting the Company's common stock from NASDAQ. That letter also formally notified the Company that the NASDAQ Hearings Panel (the "Panel") would consider the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency in their decision regarding the Company's continued listing on NASDAQ.

Stockholder's Equity Deficiency

As previously disclosed, on August 20, 2013, the "Company received a letter from NASDAQ notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with Listing Rule 5550(b) because the Company's stockholders' equity, as reported in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2013, filed on August 19, 2013 (the "Second Quarter 10-Q"), was less than $2,500,000, a NASDAQ Capital Market continued listing criterion, and the Company did not meet either of the alternative NASDAQ Capital Market continued listing criteria - market value of listed securities or net income from continuing operations - as of August 19, 2013 (the "Stockholders' Equity Deficiency"). The Stockholders' Equity Deficiency serves as an additional basis for delisting the Company's common stock from NASDAQ, in addition to the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency discussed above. That letter also formally notified the Company that the Panel would consider the Stockholders' Equity Deficiency in their decision regarding the Company's continued listing on NASDAQ.

Compliance Plan

The Company provided the Panel with a compliance plan related to the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency and the Stockholders' Equity Deficiency on August 19, 2013, and an update to that plan on August 30, 2013, which, as updated, provides for the Company to effect a reverse stock split by October 11, 2013 if necessary to regain compliance with Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) and its plan to address the Stockholders' Equity Deficiency by means of a private placement. The Panel has not yet rendered a determination with respect to the Company's updated compliance plan, as submitted on August 30, 2013, and there can be no assurance that the Panel will determine to continue the Company's listing in light of the listing deficiencies or that the Company will be able to timely remedy the Minimum Bid Price Deficiency and/or the Stockholders' Equity Deficiency in the event the Panel grants the Company additional time to do so.

In such event, the Company's common stock would be delisted from NASDAQ.
