received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange that it wasn’t in compliance with listing requirements after delaying the release of quarterly earnings.
(ticker: CTLT), the contract drug manufacturer, said Friday that it will again be delaying the release of earnings. The company now has six months to file its 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission to regain compliance with NYSE listing standards.
