Cycle Country Accessories Corp. (AMEX:ATC) announced that it received a notice dated January 19, 2011 (the “Notice”), from the staff of the NYSE Amex LLC (“Exchange”) Corporate Compliance Department (the “Exchange Staff”). The Notice states that, based on Cycle Country’s email to the Exchange Staff dated January 6, 2011 and the Form 8-K Cycle Country filed the same day announcing the resignation of one of Cycle Country’s independent directors, the Exchange Staff has determined that Cycle Country is out of compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing requirements in Section 803(2)(a)[sic] of the Exchange’s Company Guide because it does not have two independent directors as members of its audit committee.
In the Notice, the Exchange advises that, under Section 803(B)(6)(b) of the Company Guide, Cycle Country has until the earlier of its next annual shareholders’ meeting or one year from the occurrence of the event that caused the failure, except that if the annual shareholders’ meeting occurs no later than 180 days following the event that caused the failure to comply, Cycle Country has 180 to regain compliance with the Exchange requirements.
Cycle Country’s Board of Directors is currently working to find qualified director candidates so it can fill this vacancy and regain compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing requirements.
