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

 

Veeco Instruments Inc. (“Veeco” or the “Company”) announced today that, on November 26, 2012, it received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) notifying the Company that it is not in compliance with the continued listing requirements of NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was not filed on a timely basis with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and has not yet been filed.

 

NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires the Company to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the SEC.  The NASDAQ letter notes that Veeco is required to submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s filing requirements for continued listing by January 22, 2013.  Upon acceptance of the Company’s compliance plan, NASDAQ is permitted to grant an extension of up to 180 days from the Form 10-Q’s filing due date for the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s requirements for continued listing.  The Company fully intends to submit a plan by January 22, 2013 to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s listing rules.

 

A copy of the press release disclosing the Company’s receipt of the NASDAQ notification letter is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
