PHOENIX, Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InnSuites Hospitality Trust (NYSE Amex: IHT)
On September 30, 2010, InnSuites Hospitality Trust (the "Trust") received a letter from the NYSE Amex LLC (the "NYSE Amex") informing the Trust that the staff of the NYSE Amex's Corporate Compliance Department had determined that the Trust was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(ii) of the NYSE Amex Company Guide due to the Trust having stockholders' equity of less than $4.0 million.
The Trust was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan of compliance to the NYSE Amex and on November 1, 2010 the Trust submitted its plan. On December 13, 2010, NYSE Amex notified the Trust that it accepted the Trust's plan of compliance and granted the Trust an extension until March 30, 2012 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. The Trust will be subject to periodic review by the Exchange Staff during this extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Trust being delisted from the NYSE Amex.
