Leo Holdings Corp. (NYSE:LHC) today announced that on October 3, 2018 the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) notified the Company that it was not currently in compliance with the requirement of Section 802.01B of the New York Stock Exchange Listed Company Manual (the Manual) that the Companys Class A ordinary shares be held by a minimum of 300 public shareholders.
Pursuant to such notice, the Company is subject to the procedures set forth in Sections 801 and 802 of the Manual and must submit a business plan that demonstrates how the Company expects to return to compliance with the minimum public shareholders requirement within 18 months of receipt of the notice.
The notice and procedures described above have no effect on the listing of the Companys securities at this time, and the Company intends to submit a plan to regain compliance as required by the rules of the NYSE. The Company anticipates that it will satisfy this listing requirement within such time period once it locates a target business and consummates an initial business combination.
