Hanger, Inc. Provides Update On Status Of Form 10-K Filing

AUSTIN, Texas, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanger, Inc. (NYSE: HGR) today announced that it continues to work to file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 as soon as possible.  As previously disclosed by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), the Company is unable to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K because of the additional time required to complete the testing and assessment of internal controls, including the testing and assessment of the updated controls and procedures the Company implemented in response to the material weakness in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting reported in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The Company also announced that it has received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria outlined in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of the Company's failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. 

The Exchange has informed the Company that, under the NYSE rules, the Company will have six months, until September 17, 2014, to file its Form 10-K with the SEC.  The Company can, and intends to, regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards prior to such date by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC.  If the Company fails to file the Form 10-K prior to such date, then the NYSE may grant, at its discretion, a further extension of up to six additional months, depending on the specific circumstances.  The letter from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may commence delisting proceedings at any time if the circumstances warrant.

The Company's common stock continues to be listed on the NYSE under the symbol "HGR," but, beginning on March 25, 2014, it will be assigned a "LF" indicator by the NYSE to signify the Company's late filing status.
