CARBO Provides Update on NYSE Delisting, Announces Move to OTCQB Market


HOUSTON, December 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CARBO Ceramics Inc. (“CARBO” or “the Company”) today announced that, as anticipated, it received notification from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) of the suspension of trading of the Company’s common shares effective today, December 20, 2019, at the close of trading as a result of its failure to meet the NYSE’s average global market capitalization continued listing criteria. CARBO expects that its common shares will begin trading on the OTCQB Market under the symbol “CRRT” on December 23, 2019.


This announcement follows the Company’s December 13, 2019 disclosure of its application to list CARBO’s common shares on the OTCQB Market.


Importantly, the transition will not impact CARBO’s business operations or the Company’s ongoing transformation strategy to improve its cash position, diversify its business, and strengthen its financial foundation in the face of oil and gas industry volatility. As previously disclosed, this action does not cause an event of default under any of CARBO’s material debt or other agreements. The Company will continue to adhere to its SEC reporting requirements.
