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

 

On April 17, 2019, U.S. Energy Corp. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Notice”) from the Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Exchange”) notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the requirement of Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing on the Exchange as a result of the Company’s failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “Form 10-K”). This notification has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time.

 

Pursuant to the Notice, the Company is required to submit to the Exchange a plan (the “Plan”) to regain compliance with the Exchange’s requirements for continued listing within 60 calendar days of the date of the Notice (by June 17, 2019). If the Exchange accepts the Company’s Plan, the Exchange may grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the Form 10-K’s due date, or until October 14, 2019, to regain compliance.

 

On April 2, 2019, the Company filed a notification of inability to timely file Form 10-K on Form 12b-25 due to the Company’s need for additional time to obtain and assimilate all information required to complete its accounting and audit for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

On April 17, 2019, the Company filed a Form 8-K stating that the independent auditors have stated that the ongoing litigation as described in the previously filed Form 12b-25, and the Company’s Forms 8-K, filed February 26, 2019 and March 27, 2019, created uncertainty such that they are unable to provide the necessary consents for filing the Form 10-K. As a result, the Company could not file its Form 10-K.

 

The Company continues to work diligently to address these issues and to enable the filing of the Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as soon as reasonably practicable.

 

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On April 23, 2019, the Company issued a press release regarding the matters discussed herein, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
