NYSE American may also accelerate delisting action in the event that the Company’s common stock trades at levels viewed by the Staff to be abnormally low.
The Company intends to seek to regain compliance with the NYSE American’s continued listing standards by undertaking a measure or measures that are considered necessary and in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock and the common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE American under the symbol “BTTR” but will have an added designation of “BC” to indicate that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE American’s listing standards. Additionally, the Notice does not result in the immediate delisting of the Company’s stock from the NYSE American. The Company’s receipt of the Notice does not affect the Company’s business, operations or reporting requirements with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company is actively engaged in discussions with the NYSE American and is developing plans to regain compliance with the NYSE American’s continued listing standards within the time period indicated.
