PFSweb Announces Timing Update for Late Form 10-Q Filings, Reiterates Previously Stated Outlook for PFS Business

PFSweb, Inc., a global commerce services company, is providing an update on the timing of the delayed filing of its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2021 (the “June 10-Q”), as well as expected timing for its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2021 (the “September 10-Q”) due November 9, 2021. The June 10-Q filing has been delayed and the September 10-Q will be delayed due to additional time and work needed to meet the SEC reporting and accounting requirements for its LiveArea divestiture, completed August 25, 2021, as a discontinued operation and other related financial reporting requirements associated with such divestiture, including, but not limited to, segmentation of previously commingled business entities, tax analysis for all geographies, and analysis of transaction accounting treatment.

PFSweb recognizes the importance to its investors and other stakeholders to become compliant with its SEC reporting obligations as soon as possible, and the company continues to work diligently to complete its SEC reporting and accounting obligations.

PFSweb has been in communications with the NASDAQ Stock Market, and on November 9, 2021 received a notice from NASDAQ notifying the company that, because its September 2021 Form 10-Q has not been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by the required due date of November 9, 2021, the company therefore continues to not be in compliance with the periodic filing requirements for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) and must submit an updated plan to regain compliance with respect to both its delinquent SEC filings. The notice received from NASDAQ has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the company’s shares. Today, the company submitted to NASDAQ its updated plan to regain compliance. If NASDAQ accepts the company’s plan, then NASDAQ may grant the company up to 180 days from the June 2021 10-Q due date, or February 7, 2022, to file both the June 2021 Form 10-Q and September 2021 10-Q. The company currently expects to file both 10-Qs in advance of February 7, 2022.

PFSweb is reiterating its previously stated 2021 service fee revenue growth target for the PFS business. The company still expects the PFS business to generate 5% to 10% service fee revenue growth in 2021 compared to 2020. As a percentage of service fee revenue, PFS’s pro forma standalone full year 2021 adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to be within the range of 8% to 10%.
