Item 8.01. Other Events.

As previously disclosed, Hill International, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”). The Notice states that the Company would have six months from August 15, 2017 to file the Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and that, if the Company fails to file the Form 10-Q before the NYSE’s compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance.

On February 12, 2018, the Company received a letter from the NYSE which granted the Company’s request for a listing extension, which expires on July 16, 2018, in order to file the Form 10-Q as well as all subsequent delinquent filings (collectively, the “Delinquent Filings”) with the SEC. During that period, trading of the Company’s shares on the NYSE will remain unaffected. If the Company does not file the Delinquent Filings by July 16, 2018, the NYSE will initiate suspension and delisting procedures. Should the Company require additional time, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an additional extension to August 15, 2018. The extension is subject to review by the NYSE on an ongoing basis. The Company continues to work diligently to complete ongoing work on its financial restatement and expects to meet the timing requirements set forth by the NYSE.

A copy of the Company’s press release regarding the above is filed as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 8.01.

Safe Harbor Statement

The above statement that the Company expects to meet the timing requirements set forth by the NYSE is a forward-looking statement and is subject to risks and uncertainties. We have based this statement on the current status of the restatement process, other information now known to us, and our anticipated timing for the completion of the restatement and related SEC filings. Although we believe that the assumptions and expectations reflected in this statement are reasonable, the timing of completion of the restatement process and related SEC filings in order to come into compliance with the NYSE’s requirements for continued listing is subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and could vary materially from our current expectations. We assume no, and we specifically disclaim any, obligation to update this statement to reflect actual results or changes in factors or assumptions affecting this statement. We advise investors to consult any further disclosures we make on this topic in our SEC filings.
