(NYSE: SPN) (the “Company”) today announced it has received written notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE continued listing standard set forth in Rule 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, which requires the average closing price of the Company’s common stock to be at least $1.00 per share over a period of 30 consecutive trading days.
