Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. Disappointed With NYSE American Decision, Will Trade on the OTC Markets

March 11, 2019 GMT

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 11, 2019--Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. (“Tel” or the “Company”), a leading designer and manufacturer of avionics test and measurement solutions, was advised that the NYSE American denied the Company’s appeal to remain listed on the NYSE American, and that trading on NYSE American in the Company’s common stock - trading symbol “TIK” - has been suspended immediately. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the OTC Markets under the same trading symbol.

Jeff O’Hara, Tel’s President and CEO stated, “We are disappointed with the NYSE’s decision to delist the Company and not provide an additional extension to meet their minimum net worth requirement. We provided compelling evidence that we should regain compliance within the next nine to twelve months as a result of strong growth in revenues and profitability. We were not willing to raise additional equity capital, and dilute our current shareholders, to meet an arbitrary deadline. The Company is exploring alternatives for the quotation of its common stock to ensure the best possible trading platform for our shareholders.”
