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


As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 20, 2013, a hearing on Hauppauge Digital, Inc.’s appeal from The NASDAQ Stock Market’s decision to delist the Company’s common stock for the Company’s failure to comply with The NASDAQ Capital Market’s $1 minimum bid price rule and $2,500,000 minimum stockholder’s equity rule or the alternative $35 million listed securities market value or $500,000 net income from continuing operations rules was scheduled for September 11, 2013. On September 16, 2013, the NASDAQ Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) rendered a decision on the Company’s appeal, delisting the Company’s shares from The NASDAQ Capital Market (“NASDAQ”) and directing that trading of the Company’s shares was to be suspended, effective at the open of business on September 18, 2013. That same day, the Company requested that the Panel reconsider its decision based on new information that the Company believed changed, materially, the facts upon which the Panel’s decision was based, including, among other things, implementation of a reverse stock split (described in its preliminary proxy statement which was filed on September 30, 2013 (the “Proxy Statement”)) upon receiving stockholder approval on or about November 15, 2013, and the Company’s proposal to pursue and close a financing. The Company is currently exploring, the possibility of a “PIPE” or other financing which could include the issuance of the Company’s common stock and/or other equity or debt securities convertible or exercisable into the Company’s common stock. However, no assurances can be made that we will be able to obtain such financing on terms favorable to us, if at all.


By letters dated September 19, 2013 and September 27, 2013, NASDAQ advised the Company that the Panel’s decision has been stayed to allow the Company to continue with its efforts to regain compliance with the NASDAQ rules on the following conditions:


·on or before September 30, 2013, the Company shall file its proxy for its annual meeting, which shall contain a proposal for a reverse stock split in a ratio sufficient for the stock to trade above $1.00;
·on or before November 4, 2013, the Company shall inform the Panel that the Company has closed a financing and that the resulting proceeds have brought stockholders’ equity to above $2.5 million;
·on or before November 4, 2013, the Company shall provide the Panel updated financial projections demonstrating that in each of the quarterly reports the Company will file between October 31, 2013 and October 31, 2014, and the Company will evidence stockholders’ equity above $2.5 million, detailing all assumptions underlying the projections;
·on or before November 16, 2013, the Company shall inform the Panel that the Company has obtained approval from its shareholders to implement a reverse stock split;
·on or before December 5, 2013, the Company’s stock shall have evidenced a bid price over $1.00 for a minimum of ten (10) consecutive trading days; and
·on or before December 30, 2013, the Company shall file its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013, which shall evidence stockholders’ equity above $2.5 million.


On September 30, 2013, the Company filed the Proxy Statement, which contained a proposal for a reverse stock split as described above.


On October 1, 2013, the Company received a letter (the “October Letter”) from NASDAQ stating that the Company failed to hold its annual meeting within the time frame allowed under the NASDAQ Listing Rules 5620(a) and 5620(b), and such failure serves as an additional basis for delisting the Company’s securities from the NASDAQ Capital Markets. The October Letter also noted that the Panel will consider this matter in their decision regarding the Company’s continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market and that the Company should present its views with respect to this additional deficiency to the Panel in writing by no later than October 8, 2013. The Company can provide no assurance that (a) the Panel will consider any response from the Company regarding this deficiency acceptable and that NASDAQ will not delist the Company’s securities from the NASDAQ Capital Markets, and (b) the Company can maintain compliance with the other NASDAQ Capital Market Listing Rules.
