HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 10, 2018--Vicon Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: VII) today announced that it intends for its common stock to commence trading on the OTCQB Venture Market (OTCQB) on July 12, 2018. As previously announced, on June 14, 2018, the Company received notification from the NYSE American LLC (the “NYSE”) that it was not in compliance with the NYSE’s stockholders’ equity continued listing standard, and was asked to submit a compliance plan by July 16, 2018. After careful consideration of its available options and its assessment of the probability of the Company regaining compliance with the NYSE’s stockholders’ equity requirements, the Company opted not to submit a compliance plan to the NYSE and plans to instead transition to the OTCQB.

The transition to the OTCQB will not affect the Company’s business operations, and following such transition, the Company will continue to make all required filings with the SEC on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, and will remain subject to all other SEC rules and regulations applicable to reporting companies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
