Analytical Surveys, Inc., a San Antonio-based oil and gas company focused on participation in non-operating exploration and production of U.S. onshore oil and natural gas reserves, and formerly a service provider to the geographic information systems (GIS) markets, today announced that it received notice on February 16, 2007, from the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the Company is not in compliance with one of Nasdaq’s requirements for continued listing because it did not have: (i) a minimum of $2,500,000 in stockholders’ equity as of December 31, 2006; (ii) at least $35,000,000 in market value of listed securities, or (iii) at least $500,000 of net income from continuing operations for the most recently completed fiscal year or two of the three most recently completed fiscal years, and that its securities are, therefore, subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq requires compliance with one of the foregoing criteria for continued inclusion under Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(2)(B). Such a notice is routinely issued when a listed company does not meet the requirements listed above. The notice has no effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock at this time. The Company plans to provide Nasdaq with a specific plan on how it intends to achieve and sustain compliance with all the Nasdaq Capital Market listing requirements at a hearing on March 1, 2007. As reported in the Company’s Form 10-KSB for the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company had stockholders’ equity of $2,448,000 at December 31, 2006.
“Maintaining our listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market is important to us and our efforts to build long-term shareholder value,” said Lori Jones, chief executive officer. “We are currently negotiating equity financings that, upon closing, would allow us to demonstrate compliance with Nasdaq’s stockholders’ equity test.”
