Diamond Foods, Inc. (DMND: Quote) said Thursday that, as expected, it has received a determination letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department advising that the company remains noncompliant with the filing requirements for continued listing under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule after not filing its delayed quarterly reports for the periods ended October 31, 2011, and January 31, 2012 by its previously established June 11, 2012 deadline, as well as for the period ended April 30, 2012.
The company said it plans to request a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearings Panel to review the Staff determination.
In its determination letter, Nasdaq informed the company that the hearing request will stay any delisting of the company's common stock for an additional fifteen days, or until July 5, unless Diamond requests that the stay be extended pending the hearing.
The company plans to request that the stay remain in effect pending the hearing, and during the period of the stay, the company will continue its work to finalize all of its delayed filings.
The Delisting Determination letter has no effect on the listing of the company's stock at this time, Diamond Foods noted.
