Kingstone Companies, Inc. (“KINS”) (NASDAQ: KINS) today announced that, following a vote by its shareholders, it received notice from NASDAQ that it has regained compliance with NASDAQ’s listing rules.

Barry Goldstein, CEO of KINS, explained that “Our Board decided to reduce the company’s debt by offering a conversion of our redeemable preferred stock, which had a redemption date of July, 2011, into common stock. By doing so, in June 2010, KINS’s liabilities were reduced by $1.3 million and shareholder equity increased by a like amount. Shareholders have voted to approve the transaction, and KINS has fulfilled its plan to comply with NASDAQ’s listing rules.”
