VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gatos Silver, Inc. (NYSE/TSX: GATO) (“Gatos Silver” or the “Company”) announced that, further to its announcement on April 17, 2023 that the Company intends to delay the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K (“2022 Form 10-K”), it received today a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) stating that the Company was not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its 2022 Form 10-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In accordance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, the NYSE will closely monitor the status of the Company’s late filing and related public disclosures for up to six months from the date of the filing delinquency (the “Initial Cure Period”). The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE during the Initial Cure Period, subject to the Company’s compliance with other continued listing requirements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if circumstances warrant, the NYSE may commence delisting proceedings at any time. The Company has also requested an extension of the time to file the 2022 Form 10-K under the policies of the Toronto Stock Exchange.

As previously announced, the Company is working expeditiously to complete and file its 2022 Form 10-K along with restatements of previously issued financial statements of the Company and of the 70%-owned Los Gatos Joint Venture for the year ended December 31, 2021 and the quarters ended March 31, 2022, June 30, 2022 and September 30, 2022.
