PLANO, Texas, March 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (DNR) (“Denbury” or the “Company”) today announced that on March 5, 2020, it received formal notice from the New York Stock Exchange that the average closing price of the Company’s shares of common stock had fallen below $1.00 per share over a period of 30 consecutive trading days, which is the minimum average share price for continued listing on the NYSE.
Denbury intends to notify the NYSE of its intent to cure the deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSE continued listing requirements within the six-month cure period. During the cure period, Denbury’s shares of common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE, subject to compliance with other continued listing requirements.
Denbury can regain compliance at any time during the six-month cure period if on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period, its common stock has a closing share price of at least $1.00 and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month. Failure to satisfy the conditions of the cure period or to maintain other listing requirements could lead to a delisting.
The NYSE notification does not affect Denbury’s ongoing business operations or its U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements, nor does it trigger any violation of its debt obligations. Denbury is considering all available options to regain compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards, which may include a reverse stock split, subject to approval of the Company’s board of directors and stockholders.
