Upon receipt of the plan, the NYSE has 45 calendar days to review and determine whether the Company has made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to come into conformity with the relevant standards within the 18 month period. The NYSE will either accept the plan, at which time the Company will be subject to ongoing monitoring for compliance with this plan, or the NYSE will not accept the plan and the Company will be subject to suspension and delisting proceedings. During the 18-month cure period, the Company's shares will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE subject to its compliance with other NYSE continued listing standards.
