Fenix Parts Receives Letter From Nasdaq Relating to its Delayed 10-Q Filing

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Aug. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fenix Parts, Inc. (Nasdaq:FENX) announced today that it has received a non-compliance notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because it has not timely filed its Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. On August 16, 2016, the Company filed a Form 12b-25, extending the SEC filing date to August 22, 2016, but was unable to file its 10-Q by the extended filing date due to the transition time necessitated by the Company’s recent change in its auditors.

Kent Robertson, CEO of Fenix Parts, said, “The quarterly filing and related review are largely complete. However, given the complexity of our business combinations and the process necessary to review historical work papers, the transition of our auditors is still in process. We look forward to reporting our second quarter results in the near future.”

On August 23, 2016 the Company and its subsidiaries, on the one hand, and Bank of Montreal and BMO Harris Bank N.A., on the other hand, signed an amendment and waiver to its credit facility agreement. The Company had previously announced it was not in compliance with a certain loan covenant in its credit facility. Under the amendment, Bank of Montreal and BMO Harris Bank N.A. have waived compliance with those provisions for periods ended prior to August 19, 2016.
