This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) is being filed to amend the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Aceto Corporation on April 1, 2019 (the “Original Filing”) solely to change the Item number and Item caption reflected in the Original Filing. The Original Filing was inadvertently filed under Item 1.01 (Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement) instead of Item 3.01 (Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing) of Form 8-K. No disclosure in the text of the Original Filing was changed as a result of this Amendment, which is reproduced below in its entirety.


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


On February 19, 2019, Aceto Corporation, a New York corporation (the “Company”), and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries (collectively with the Company, the “Debtors”) each filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. The Debtors have proposed to jointly administer their chapter 11 cases under the caption In re Aceto Corporation, et al. (the “Chapter 11 Cases”).


As previously disclosed, on February 21, 2019, the Company received a notification from the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) informing the Company that, as a result of the Chapter 11 Cases and in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules 5101, 5110(b) and IM-5101-1, Nasdaq had determined that the Company’s common stock would be delisted from Nasdaq. The Company timely appealed the delisting notice and appeared before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) on March 28, 2019. The Panel issued a decision on April 1, 2019, and determined to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq. The suspension of trading will become effective at the open of business on April 3, 2019. The Panel also informed the Company that Nasdaq will complete the delisting by filing a Form 25 Notification of Delisting with the Securities and Exchange Commission, after the applicable appeals periods have lapsed.


The Company does not intend to appeal Nasdaq’s determination. Upon delisting, the Company expects that its common stock will commence trading on the OTC Pink Market, on April 3, 2019 under the symbol “ACETQ.” The transition does not affect the Company’s operations and does not change reporting requirements under SEC rules.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
