Pacific Office Properties Receives Non-Compliance Notice from NYSE Amex
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacific Office Properties Trust, Inc. (NYSE Amex: PCE), a real estate investment trust owning interests in 45 office buildings primarily in Hawaii and California, reported today that it received notice from the NYSE Amex (the “Exchange”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards specified in Section 1003(a)(i) of the Exchange’s Company Guide because the Company has total equity of less than $2,000,000 and losses in two out of its three most recent fiscal years, and Section 1003(a)(ii) of the Company Guide because the Company has total equity of less than $4,000,000 and losses in three out of its four most recent fiscal years.
The equity, referenced above and determined under GAAP accounting, differs from the Company’s market equity and net equity in its office portfolio. The Company’s market equity is the market value of all outstanding common stock and securities convertible into common stock. The Company’s net equity in its office portfolio is the market value of the office-building portfolio, less all mortgage and corporate debt.
The notification received from the Exchange has had no current effect on the listing of the Company’s shares of common stock on the Exchange. The Company intends to submit a plan by May 19, 2011 pursuant to which the Company intends to establish compliance with the requirements of Sections 1003(a)(i) and (ii) of the Company Guide by October 19, 2012. Subject to the Exchange’s acceptance of the Company’s plan, and the Company’s compliance with the Exchange’s other continued listing standards, the Company expects its shares of common stock will remain listed on the Exchange during the plan period.
There can be no assurance that any plan submitted by the Company will be accepted by the Exchange or, if the Company’s plan is accepted, that it will be able to regain compliance within the plan period.
