Late filing prompts NASDAQ letter to ClearOne

ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) said it has received a notification letter from staff of the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Department, dated November 24, 2015, stating that ClearOne is not in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The letter was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedure under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(2).

As previously disclosed, ClearOne´s former auditor, McGladrey LLP, resigned and withdrew its audit report of the company´s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014 solely as a result of its determination that it was not independent of the company for such period and subsequent interim periods.

McGladrey´s resignation was not due to any reason related to ClearOne´s financial reporting or accounting operations, policies or practices. Prior to such determination, ClearOne did not believe there were any issues relating to McGladrey´s independence.

ClearOne has 60 calendar days, or until January 25, 2016, to submit to NASDAQ a plan to regain compliance with the NASDAQ Listing Rules.
