COEUR D'ALENE, IDAHO--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - Timberline Resources Corporation (NYSE MKT:TLR)(TSX VENTURE:TBR) ("Timberline" or the "Company") announced today that on March 21, 2014 the NYSE MKT LLC (the "Exchange") notified the Company that it accepted the Company's plan of compliance (the "Plan") and granted the Company an extension until June 30, 2014 to regain compliance with the Exchange's continued listing standards.
Based upon a review of the Plan and information submitted by the Company, the Exchange determined that the Company made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to make substantial progress toward regaining compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the "Company Guide") by the end of the revised plan period, which the Exchange has now determined to be June 30, 2014.
As previously announced, the Company had received notice from the Exchange that the Company is not in compliance with one of the Exchange's continued listing standards, specifically Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide, in that it has sustained losses which are substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become impaired such that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the Exchange, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature. In order to maintain its listing on the Exchange, the Exchange requested that the Company submit a Plan addressing how the Company intended to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide. The Company subsequently submitted its Plan and other requested information to the Exchange.
The Company's listing is being continued pursuant to an extension and will be subject to periodic review by staff of the Exchange during the extension period. Failure to make progress consistent with the Plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards of the Exchange by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being subject to the Exchange's delisting procedures.
