Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On January 2, 2013, Motricity, Inc. (the Company) received a letter (the Annual Meeting Delisting Notice) from the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (NASDAQ) advising the Company that its failure to hold an annual meeting of shareholders, to solicit proxies and to provide proxy statements to the NASDAQ Global Select Market by December 31, 2012 in accordance with Listing Rules
5620(a) and 5620(b) (the Annual Meeting Requirement) serves as an additional basis for delisting the Companys common stock from the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (the SEC) on December 19, 2012, the Company received a letter from NASDAQ (the Minimum Bid Delisting Notice), notifying the Company that it has not regained compliance with Listing Rule 5450(a)(1), the continued listing requirement to maintain the closing bid price of its common stock at $1.00 per share (the Minimum Bid Requirement). The Company submitted to NASDAQ a request for a hearing before a NASDAQ hearings panel (the Panel) to appeal the determination, staying the suspension of the Companys common stock and the filing of a Form 25 with the SEC. The Company will address the Panel at a hearing scheduled to be held on January 31, 2013, at which time the Company intends to present its plan for regaining compliance with the Annual Meeting Requirement and the Minimum Bid Requirement.
As part of the Companys plan to regain compliance with the Annual Meeting Requirement and Minimum Bid Requirement, the Company filed with the SEC a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus on Form S-4 (Registration Number 333-185510) on December 17, 2012 (the Proxy Statement). The Companys 2012 annual meeting of stockholders is currently set for January 29, 2013 or as soon as practicable thereafter, pending clearance by the SEC of the Proxy Statement, and the record date for determining the stockholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the annual meeting is December 31, 2012. Included in the Proxy Statement, is, among other proposals, a proposal (the Proposal) seeking stockholder approval of its Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split such that each ten shares of common stock issued and outstanding prior to the reverse stock split will be exchanged for one share of common stock after the reverse stock split. If the Proposal is approved by the stockholders, it will be implemented by the Companys board of directors if it determines that a reverse stock split is appropriate to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement. In addition, the Company anticipates that holding its annual meeting will enable the Company to regain compliance with the Annual Meeting Requirement. There can be no assurance that the Proposal will be approved by stockholders, that the Proposal, if approved, would be sufficient to permit the Company to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Requirement, or that holding its annual meeting would be sufficient to permit the Company to regain compliance with the Annual Meeting Requirement.
There can be no assurances that the Companys appeal will be successful or that the Company will be able to achieve or maintain compliance with the NASDAQ continued listing requirements or that NASDAQ will grant the Companys request for continued listing.
