|Item 3.01||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On January 19, 2017, InnSuites Hospitality Trust (the “Trust”) received a letter from the NYSE MKT LLC (f/k/a AMEX) (the “NYSE MKT”) informing the Trust that the staff of the NYSE MKT’s Corporate Compliance Department has determined that the Trust is not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the NYSE MKT Company Guide due to the Trust having stockholders’ equity of less than $6.0 million and net losses from continuing operations in its five most recent fiscal years ended January 31, 2016.
The NYSE MKT’s letter informed the Trust that, to maintain its listing, it must submit a plan of compliance by February 20, 2017, addressing how it intends to regain compliance with the NYSE MKT’s continued listing standards within the maximum potential 18-month plan period available (the “Plan Period”). Elements of the compliance plan may include the sale of one or more of its assets (Management believes IHT hotels have a much lower book value than market value), sale of additional Trust stock at market value, sale of minority interest in specific hotel properties and/or anticipated continuation of the current operational upward current trends in hotel gross operating profits.
On March 31, 2017, the Trust received a letter from the NYSE MKT informing the Trust that the NYSE MKT Regulation staff has accepted the Trust’s Equity Enhancement Plan (the “Plan”) and has granted a Plan period through January 19, 2018. The NYSE MKT Regulation staff will review the Trust periodically for compliance with the initiatives outlined in the Plan. Failure to make progress consistent with the Plan or to regain compliance with continued listing standards by the end of the Plan period could result in the Trust being delisted from the NYSE MKT.
