Operating income totaled $37.3 million compared to $38.2 million for the same prior year period, representing a decrease of $0.9 million or 2%. This decrease in operating income was attributed to the decrease in net revenues.
NASDAQ Delisting Letter
On October 3, 2012, we received a written deficiency notice (the "Notice") from the NASDAQ Global Market ("NASDAQ") advising us that the market value of our Class A common stock for the previous 30 consecutive business days had been below the minimum $15,000,000 required for continued listing on the NASDAQ Global Market pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(b)(3) (C) (the "Rule").
Pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(D), we were provided an initial grace period of 180 calendar days, or until April 1, 2013, to regain compliance with the Rule. We did not regain compliance with the Rule by April 1, 2013. On March 29, 2013, we filed an application to be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market. If the application is approved by NASDAQ, our Class A common stock will continue to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Market until it is switched to the NASDAQ Capital Market, which is expected to occur in April 2013. We expect the application to be approved, but there can be no guarantee that it will be. If our application is not approved, NASDAQ will provide written notification to us that our Class A common stock is subject to delisting from the NASDAQ Global Market, at which time we will have an opportunity to appeal the determination to a NASDAQ Hearings Panel.
We have not yet decided whether we would request a hearing or permit our Class A common stock to be delisted. If the Class A common stock were to be delisted, it could negatively affect the liquidity and price of the Class A common stock.
