RGS Energy Regains NASDAQ Compliance

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Aug. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), one of the nation's leading rooftop installers of solar equipment, has received notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ") that it has regained compliance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rules.

As previously announced, on April 14, 2015, NASDAQ notified the company that it was no longer in compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(b)(2) because the minimum Market Value of Listed Securities (MVLS) of the company's Class A common stock had fallen below $35 million for the 30 business day period between February 24, 2015 and April 13, 2015, and describing a 180 day timetable for bringing the company into compliance with that rule.

On August 17, 2015, NASDAQ notified the company that based on its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2015 evidencing stockholders' equity of $7.3 million, the company now complies with the alternate requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), stockholders' equity of at least $2.5 million, and that as a result this matter is closed.

"This compliance with NASDAQ standards is the outcome of recent financial transactions which have returned the company to positive stockholders' equity and positive working capital," noted Dennis Lacey, CEO of RGS Energy. "We have now refocused our turnaround efforts on revenue growth by expanding our sales and construction capabilities."
