ITEM 3.01. NOTICE OF DELISTING OR FAILURE TO SATISFY A CONTINUED LISTING RULE OR STANDARD; TRANSFER OF LISTING.

On April 9, 2020, Party City Holdco Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice (the “Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company is no longer in compliance with the NYSE continued listing standards set forth in Section 802.01C of the NYSE’s Listed Company Manual, which requires listed companies to maintain an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

The Company has a period of six months following the receipt of the Notice to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement. In order to regain compliance, on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period, the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), must have (i) a closing price of at least $1.00 per share and (ii) an average closing price of at least $1.00 per share over the 30-trading day period ending on the last trading day of such month. If the Company is unable to regain compliance, the NYSE will initiate procedures to suspend and delist the Common Stock.

The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s Common Stock, which will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE during the cure period, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other listing requirements of the NYSE. The Common Stock will continue to trade under the symbol “PRTY” but will have an added designation of “.BC” to indicate the status of the Common Stock as “below compliance” with the NYSE continued listing standards. The “.BC” indicator will be removed at such time as the Company regains compliance.

The Notice does not affect the Company’s business operations or its reporting obligations with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and it does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company’s material debt or other agreements.

ITEM 7.01. REGULATION FD DISCLOSURE.

On April 14, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing its receipt of the NYSE notice. A copy of the Company’s press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. Furthermore, the information contained in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
