Non-compliance notice. On April 17 the company was not able to file its 10-K on time, and, subsequently, received a notification of non-compliance from NASDAQ. Notably, the company has 30 days to submit an actionable plan to regain compliance. Importantly, the failure to file its 10-K on time was attributed to the inability of  its auditor, Marcum, to verify impressions data. 

New auditor expected soon. Marcum is terminating its relationship with the company, citing its inability to verify the company’s impressions data. Importantly, we expect the company to sign a top 10 US accounting firm within the 30-day window. The audit should be able to ramp quickly, given that the company will be able to provide timely access to all the data the was requested by the previous auditor. Additionally, we expect Nasdaq will accept its plan and grant the company up to 6 months to complete the10-K filing, as well as its first quarter 10-Q filing.
