Flamemaster Corp. has received a NASDAQ staff determination indicating the company failed to comply with NASDAQ marketplace in connection with the April acquisition of Best Candy & Tobacco Co., a candy and tobacco distributor to c-stores and others.

These include Rule 4310©(17) regarding notification of the issuance of additional shares, rule 4350(i)(1)© regarding shareholder approval and rule 4330(f) regarding reverse mergers, Flamemaster reported.

The company acquired Best Candy & Tobacco by issuing non-voting convertible preferred stock. NASDAQ determined the transaction with Best Candy constituted a reverse merger and that an initial listing application for Best Candy would be required.
