5/5/2016 Print Version

VANCOUVER, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/16 --

Barrett Business Services, Inc. (BBSI or the Company) (NASDAQ: BBSI), a leading provider of business management solutions, expects the filing of its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to be delayed past the NASDAQ-imposed deadline of May 9, 2016.

As a result of the delayed filing, BBSI expects NASDAQ will provide prompt written notification of its determination to delist the Company's common stock for failure to meet a continued listing standard. Within seven calendar days after the receipt of the expected notification, BBSI will submit a request for a hearing by NASDAQ, which will stay the suspension and delisting action until the NASDAQ Hearings Panel issues a written decision.

BBSI's 10-K will include restated audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2014, and restated unaudited condensed financial statements for all quarters in the period beginning January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015.

"Moss Adams, our independent registered public accounting firm, is currently finishing their audit of our 2015, 2014 and 2013 financial statements," said Tom Carley, BBSI's interim CFO. "We will file our 2015 10-K with the SEC once it is completed."

In addition, the deadline to file the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2016 is May 10, 2016. However, BBSI does not anticipate meeting this deadline and will file the required notice with the SEC.
