CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 9, 2023–
Veradigm Inc. (NASDAQ: MDRX) announced today that, on October 6, 2023, it received a notice from Nasdaq indicating that the temporary stay of delisting of the Company’s common stock has been extended pending a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) on November 16, 2023, and the issuance of a final Panel decision.
Previously, the Company disclosed that, on September 20, 2023, it had received a notice (the “Delisting Notice”) from Nasdaq indicating that the Company’s common stock would be delisted due to noncompliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), because the Company did not file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Form 10-K”), Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 (the “Q1 Form 10-Q”) and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 (together with the Q1 Form 10-Q, the “Form 10-Qs”) before the expiration of the 180-day “exception period” that was previously granted by Nasdaq. Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires listed companies to timely file all periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). On September 27, 2023, the Company appealed Nasdaq’s determination in the Delisting Notice pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Listing Rules and requested a hearing (the “Hearing Request”) before the Panel. The Hearing Request had temporarily stayed any suspension or delisting action until October 12, 2023, and requested that the temporary stay be extended until the Panel issues a final decision on the matter.
As previously disclosed, the Company has been unable to file the Form 10-K, and consequently, the Form 10-Qs, because of internal control failures that primarily stem from accounting processes and a software tool implemented by the Company in order to comply with the requirements of FASB’s rule ASC 606. The work effort to conclude on the accounting and internal control errors has taken longer than previously expected, primarily resulting from the need to build a new supplemental revenue system tool and the extensive manual work to aggregate and map the Company’s historical transaction data into the new system tool. The Company currently expects to file the Form 10-K and Forms 10-Q during the fourth quarter of 2023.
