Global Power Announces NYSE Listing Extension as it Works to Complete Its Financial Restatement Process
IRVING, Texas, Nov. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (NYSE:GLPW) ("Global Power") today announced that the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) granted an extension for continued listing and trading, and also remarked on its previously announced restatement of historical financial information and the status of its existing credit agreement.
New York Stock Exchange Listing Extension
On November 12, 2015, Global Power received a four-month extension for continued listing and trading on the NYSE through March 31, 2016, subject to reassessment on an ongoing basis. The extension for continued listing and trading provides Global Power until March 31, 2016 to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) the amended Form 10-K covering the fiscal years that are subject to restatement and the Form 10-Qs for its first, second, and third quarters of 2015. Global Power has the ability to request an additional extension, if necessary.
Financial Restatement Process
As previously disclosed, Global Power is in the process of an ongoing review of its historical financial information and will be restating its 2013 and 2014 financial statements and the associated quarterly periods. Global Power continues to review whether earlier periods are affected.
Once the restatement is complete, Global Power plans to host a teleconference to review the restated financials, as well as its strategy for moving forward.
Credit Agreement Developments
Throughout the restatement process, Global Power and its lenders have engaged in regular and constructive dialogue regarding its February 21, 2012 credit agreement. Since announcing the restatement in May 2015, Global Power has entered into three amendments and limited waivers with the lenders, which were each filed on a Form 8-K with the SEC. To date, the lenders have reached accommodations with Global Power, and Global Power expects to continue the ongoing dialogue with a view to addressing the pending defaults and finalizing the restatement under arrangements acceptable to all parties.
