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


On March 18, 2014, ZaZa Energy Corporation (“we,” “our” or the “Company”) received a deficiency letter (the “Notice Letter”) from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) indicating that, based on the Company’s closing bid price for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company does not comply with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share, as set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  The notification has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market.


In accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days to regain compliance with the minimum closing price requirement for continued listing.  In order to regain compliance, the minimum closing price per share of the Company’s common stock must be at least $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive business days during the 180-day grace period.  In the event the Company does not regain compliance within the 180-day grace period, the Company may be afforded an additional 180-day grace period, provided that it demonstrates that it meets all other applicable standards for initial listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market (except the bid price requirement) and provides written notice of its intention to cure the minimum bid price deficiency during the second grace period.  If the Company fails to regain compliance after the second 180-day grace period, the Company’s common stock will be subject to delisting by NASDAQ.
