BEDFORD, Mass., Aug. 20 /CNW/ -- GSI Group Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:
GSIG), a supplier of precision technology and semiconductor systems, today
announced that it received an additional staff determination notice from the
Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq"), indicating that the Company is not in
compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the "Rule") due to the delayed filing
of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended
July 3, 2009 (the "Quarterly Report"). The staff determination notice
indicated that such non-compliance with the Rule would serve as an additional
basis for delisting the Company's securities from Nasdaq.
As previously announced, on July 22, 2009 the Nasdaq Hearings Panel
granted the Company's request for continued listing on Nasdaq conditioned on
the Company (i) reporting to the Panel before August 31, 2009 the status of
its public disclosure about the range of adjustments the Company expects to
make to revenue transactions in its Precision Technology Segment for 2004
through 2008 and (ii) filing on or before November 2, 2009 its delayed
periodic reports and any required restatements. If the Company is unable to
meet the exception requirements, the Panel will issue a final determination to
delist the Company's shares.
As previously disclosed, the Company's Audit Committee has concluded its
review of sales transactions in the Company's Semiconductor Systems Segment
for fiscal years 2006, 2007 and 2008, and the Company is currently reviewing
the timing of revenue recognized in connection with multiple element
arrangements in its Precision Technology Segment from 2004 through 2008 to
determine if adjustments need to be made to those periods. The Company
continues to work diligently to complete the preparation and filing of its
delayed periodic reports, in addition to restated financial statements for
fiscal years 2006, 2007 and 2008.
