Share:
BARRANQUILLA, Colombia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Tecnoglass, Inc. (NASDAQ: TGLS) ("Tecnoglass" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of architectural glass, windows, and associated aluminum products for the global commercial and residential construction industries, today reported that it has received an additional letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") advising the Company that the Company does not comply with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because NASDAQ has not received the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. As previously reported, the Company was recently informed by NASDAQ that it was not in compliance with its continued listing rules for failure to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. NASDAQ has informed the Company that it has until June 17, 2016 to submit a plan to regain compliance with respect to the delinquent reports in accordance with a delinquency letter the Company received from NASDAQ. If NASDAQ approves the Company's plan, it has the discretion to grant the Company an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-K (or until October 12, 2016) to regain compliance.

The Company continues to work closely with PricewaterhouseCoopers Ltda., the Company's independent registered public accounting firm ("PWC"), and its predecessor auditor Marcum LLP in order to finalize the financial statements to be included in the delinquent reports and intends to file such reports as soon as possible and expects such filing to be prior to the date stipulated by NASDAQ. If the Company is unable to file the delinquent reports by June 17, 2016, it intends to file a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ. This additional notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's ordinary shares on NASDAQ. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the listing requirements discussed above or otherwise satisfy the other NASDAQ listing criteria.

These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's current assumptions, expectations, and beliefs and are subject to substantial risks, estimates, assumptions, uncertainties, and changes in circumstances that may cause actual results, performance, or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement, including, among others, the timing and nature of the final resolution of the accounting issues discussed in this press release; any further delay in the filing of required periodic reports with the SEC; whether a restatement of financial results will be required for other accounting issues for the same or other periods in addition to the restatement currently expected by management; additional uncertainties related to accounting issues generally; and adverse effects on the Company's business as a result of the restatement process.
