Trailer Bridge receives delisting warning from NASDAQ

From the SEC filing of Trailer Bridge

Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On August 18, 2011, Trailer Bridge, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company’s market value of publicly held shares was below the minimum $15,000,000 requirement for continued inclusion on The Nasdaq Global Market under Listing Rule 5450(b)(3)(C) (the “Rule”). This notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock. The Rule defines “publicly held shares” as total shares outstanding, less any shares held directly or indirectly by officers, directors or a beneficial owner of more than 10% of the total outstanding shares.

In accordance with Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(D), the Company has 180 calendar days, or until February 14, 2012, to regain compliance with the Rule. The Company will regain compliance if, at any time before February 14, 2012, the Company’s market value of publicly held shares is $15,000,000 or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days.

If the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule by February 14, 2012, Nasdaq will provide the Company with written notification that the Company’s common stock will be delisted from The Nasdaq Global Market. At that time, the Company may appeal the delisting determination to a Nasdaq Listings Qualifications Panel. Alternatively, Nasdaq may permit the Company to transfer its common stock to The Nasdaq Capital Market if it satisfies the requirements for continued listing on that market.

The Company will continue to monitor the market value of its publicly held common stock and consider various options available to it if its common stock does not trade at a level that is likely to regain compliance.
