Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

In connection with the delay in the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) described below, JRjr33, Inc. (the “Company”) obtained from the holder (the “Holder”) of its 9.75% senior secured convertible note issued on November 20, 2015 (the “Note”) an irrevocable waiver dated April 15, 2016 (the “Waiver”) that the Company’s failure to timely file the Form 10-K with the SEC would not constitute an event of default under the Note, and that any further notice to the Holder under the Note in respect of the same would not be required, with such waiver to be effective until April 25, 2016 (the “Waiver Period”) unless extended as set forth below. The Holder agreed to extend the Waiver Period (if necessary) beyond April 25, 2016 for successive periods, each consisting of ten (10) business days, until the date the Form 10-K is filed with the SEC, provided that the Company issues to the Holder 50,000 shares of the Company’s common stock for each extension period required beyond April 25, 2016 (without regard to whether the Company requires the full ten (10) business day period for any given extension).
The foregoing description of the Waiver is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Waiver, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 3.01.       Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On April 14, 2016, the Company notified the NYSE MKT LLC (the “NYSE”) that it did not expect to timely file its Form 10-K with the SEC. On April 19, 2016, the Company issued a press release announcing that it received a letter from the NYSE on April 15, 2016 notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Form 10-K with the SEC. 

The Company primarily attributes the delay in filing the Form 10-K to working through several items; such as new personnel, a newly implemented Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system at a major subsidiary and obtaining reports from multiple international markets. The Company continues to work diligently with its independent auditors to provide all the necessary information, including finalization of all adjustments and supporting analysis, so they can complete the audit of financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. The Company has no disagreements with its auditors and expects and intends to complete the filing of the Form 10-K at the earliest possible date, which the Company fully expects to be well in advance of the period allowed by the NYSE.

The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company must submit a plan to the NYSE by May 16, 2016 advising of actions it has taken or will take to regain compliance with the continued listed standards by October 17, 2016. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before that deadline by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-K by the NYSE’s compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The letter from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.

Until the Company files the Form 10-K, the Company’s common stock will remain listed on the NYSE under the symbol “JRJR,” but will be assigned a late filer (“LF”) indicator to signify late filing status and the Company will be posted to the late filers list on the Listing Standards Filing Status page on the NYSE website.
A copy of the press release disclosing the Company’s receipt of the NYSE notification letter is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
