NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trinity Place Holdings Inc. (NYSE: TPHS) (the “Company”) today announced that, as expected, on August 23, 2022, it received notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) ) stating that the Company did not comply with the NYSE’s continuous listing standards under the timely filing criteria set forth in Section 1007 of the NYSE American Company Guide, because the Company failed to timely file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 (“Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on or before the due date thereof . The NYSE has informed the Company that, in accordance with NYSE rules, the Company has six months from the due date to file Form 10-Q with the SEC.

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed August 17, 2021, management and the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, in consultation with BDO USA LLP, the independent public accounting firm of the Company, have determined that the Company’s previously released financial statements and the auditor’s report thereon, as at and for the year ended December 31, 2021, and the unaudited interim financial statements as at and for each quarterly periods ended June 30, 2021, September 30, 2021, December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022 (collectively, the “prior period financial statements”), should no longer be relied upon due to an error in accounting treatment regarding the overcapitalization of internally allocated construction costs related to the development project at 77 Rue de Greenwich. Management and the Audit Committee have determined that these accounting changes require a restatement of the prior period financial statements, the impacts of which are expected to primarily involve a reduction in net income and total assets for certain periods (which will gain on sale of condominiums in excess of expected gain before restatement) and other non-cash items. The restated accounts as a whole should have no effect on the Company’s accumulated earnings by the end of the co-ownership liquidation period. Accordingly, the Company required additional time to assess its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and the quarter ended June 30, 2022, and did not file timely its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

The company continues to work diligently with its independent registered public accounting firm and currently expects to file Form 10-Q in early September and amendments to its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended 31 December 2021 and the quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 as soon as practicable after the date hereof.
