SAEXPLORATION HOLDINGS, INC. : Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing (form 8-K)

05/05/2020 | 04:11pm

Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or
Standard; Transfer of Listing.



On April 29, 2020, SAExploration Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") received written
notice from the Listings Qualification Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC
(the "Nasdaq Stock Market") that the staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market (the
"Nasdaq Staff") had determined to suspend trading in the Company's common stock
at the opening of business on May 8, 2020 and file a Form 25-NSE with the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission
(the "SEC") to commence proceedings to
delist the Company's common stock from The Nasdaq Capital Market (the "Nasdaq
Capital Market"). The Nasdaq Stock Market reached its decision to delist the
Company's common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Listing Rule
5550(b)(1) (the "Listing Rule") because the Company had not complied with the
minimum $2.5 million stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on
the Nasdaq Capital Market. As previously disclosed, on February 11, 2020, the
Company received written notice from the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the
Company was not in compliance with the Listing Rule. The Company had also
previously submitted a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq minimum
stockholders' equity requirement.



The Company may appeal the Nasdaq Staff's determination to a hearings panel (the
"Panel") pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Nasdaq Listing 5800 Series.
A hearing request will stay the suspension on trading the Company's common stock
and the filing of the Form 25-NSE with the SEC pending a decision by the Panel.
At this time, the Company does not intend to appeal the Nasdaq Staff's
determination.



The Company has submitted an application for its common stock to be listed on
the Over-the-Counter OTCQB Venture Market (the "OTCQB") and, pending the
completion of the application process and its acceptance by the OTC Markets
Group, the Company intends for its common stock to trade on the OTCQB under its
current trading symbol "SAEX". The Company does not expect such potential
transition to the OTCQB to have an immediate effect on the Company's business
operations. Following such potential transition to the OTCQB, the Company
expects to remain a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
and generally to continue to file periodic and other reports with the SEC.



The delisting of the Company's common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market could
negatively impact the Company in several ways, including without limitation, by
(i) reducing the liquidity and market price of the Company's common stock; (ii)
reducing the number of investors willing to hold or acquire the Company's common
stock, which could negatively impact the Company's ability to raise equity
financing; (iii) impairing the Company's ability to provide equity incentives to
its employees; (iv) reducing trading levels if the Company's common stock falls
within the definition of a "penny stock," which would cause brokers trading the
Company's common stock to adhere to more stringent rules; (v) causing analysts
to limit or stop coverage of the Company's common stock; and (vi) limiting
availability of market quotations for the Company's common stock.



In addition, if the Company's common stock has not been listed on the OCTQB, or
on another qualifying exchange, within five trading days following the delisting
of our common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market, such event would constitute
a "fundamental change" under the terms of the indenture governing our 6% Senior
Secured Convertible Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes"). In such event, we would
be required to provide notice to the holders of our 2023 Notes of such
fundamental change and could be required, at the option of such holders, to
repurchase all or a portion of their notes. A requirement by such holders for us
to repurchase some or all of such notes for cash will have a material adverse
effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations, including
if we do not have sufficient funds or are otherwise unable to comply with such
requirement in accordance with the indenture governing our 2023 Notes.
