    GTT Receives NYSE Notice Regarding Delayed Form 10-Q Filing

    MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT) (the “Company”), a leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients, today announced that it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s stock on the NYSE. The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company can regain compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements by filing the Form 10-Q with the SEC at any time prior to February 17, 2021. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-Q by that date, the NYSE may grant, in its sole discretion, a further extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The NYSE notice indicates that NYSE may commence delisting proceedings at any time during the period that is available to complete the filing, if circumstances warrant.As the Company reported in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on August 10, 2020, the Company is overseeing a review of certain issues related to the recording and reporting of Cost of Telecommunications Services and related internal controls. The Company continues to work diligently to complete the review but is currently unable to predict the timing or outcome of the review. Consequently, the Company is not in a position to file the Form 10-Q. The Company continues to work expeditiously to conclude the review and will file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable.About GTTGTT connects people across organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud.
