Enservco Corporation Provides Update Concerning Non-Compliance with NYSE American Listing Standards

LONGMONT, Colo., June 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enservco Corporation (NYSE American: ENSV) (“Enservco”, or the “Company”), a diversified national provider of specialized well-site services to the domestic onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries, today announced that the staff of NYSE Regulation has determined to commence proceedings to delist the common stock of Enservco from the Exchange. NYSE Regulation has determined that the Company is no longer suitable for listing pursuant to Section 1009(a) of the NYSE American Company Guide (the “Company Guide”) as the Company was unable to attain a minimum of $6.0 million of stockholders’ equity by June 9, 2024; the end of the maximum 18-month compliance plan period.

The Company has a right to a review of staff’s determination to delist the common stock by the Listings Qualifications Panel of the Committee for Review of the Board of Directors of the Exchange (the “Panel”).

Enservco plans to request a hearing to file an appeal with the Panel and to submit a cure of its equity deficit (as required, between the notice and hearing dates). The hearing date will be set by the Panel and the Company will communicate that date to the shareholders when established. Following such appeal, a decision by the Panel will be made and announced by NYSE Regulation regarding either proceeding with suspension and delisting or continued trading in the Company’s common stock. During the appeal review period, the Company’s stock will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE American exchange.

The Company’s planned resolution of its equity deficit (the “Updated Plan”) includes a series of components, some of which are outlined below. The Company’s management believes these actions will satisfy the stockholders’ equity requirement and allow it to remain listed on the NYSE American exchange.

  • The Company has entered into a terms sheet for a $10 million equity line of credit and expects to announce the entering into definitive agreements for the equity line of credit within 48 hours.
  • Rich Murphy and Cross River Partners, L.P., has now converted its $1.2 million November 2022 convertible note and also the aggregate of $1.0 million of its September and October 2023 convertible notes into equity.
  • The Company is continuing to actively explore other components to its Updated Plan. This includes completing the financing for its previously announced acquisition of Buckshot Trucking LLC which includes, amongst other terms, the issuance of $1.25 million of equity.
  • Last, the Company is continuing to explore strategic initiatives to rationalize its assets and reduce reliance upon the seasonal frac heating business.

The Company understands that the Panel’s appeal review period may take up to several months. Enservco plans to execute the Updated Plan to attain the required $6 million of stockholders’ equity. The Company’s stock will continue to trade on the NYSE American, during the appeal review period. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will successfully execute all of the elements of the Updated Plan and thus regain compliance with all applicable NYSE American listing standards. In such event, Enservco’s common stock will be delisted from the NYSE American.

Enservco’s receipt of such notification from the NYSE American does not affect the Company’s business, operations, or reporting requirements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, nor does it suspend the trading of the Company’s shares on the NYSE American during the appeal review period. However, if the Company does not appeal this determination, NYSE American will announce the date that trading will be suspended.
