This Report, including the exhibits, includes forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. Our actual results may differ materially from those discussed herein, or implied by, these forward-looking statements.

In addition, any statements that refer to expectations or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements included in this Current Report are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including but limited to: risks and uncertainties associated with the integration of the assets and operations we have acquired and may acquire in the future; our possible inability to raise or generate additional funds that will be necessary to continue and expand our operations; our potential lack of revenue growth; our potential inability to regain compliance with the listing standards of the NYSE MKT LLC; our potential inability to continue as a going concern; and other factors detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Item 3.01.Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


On May 9, 2014, Elephant Talk Communications Corp. (the “Company”) received a notice from the NYSE MKT LLC (the “Exchange”) indicating that the Company made a reasonable demonstration of its ability to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide of the Exchange (the “Company Guide”). As a result, the Exchange accepted the Company’s updated plan of compliance (the “Plan”) and granted the Company a further extension until November 17, 2014 (the “Plan Period”) to regain compliance with the continued listing standards. The Exchange has indicated that the Plan Period is the maximum allowable under Section 1009 of the Company Guide.


The Company initially received notice from the Exchange on May 17, 2013 indicating that the Company does not satisfy the continued listing standards of the Exchange set forth in Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide in that the Company has sustained losses which are so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the Exchange, as to whether the Company will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature. The Company was afforded an opportunity to submit its initial plan of compliance to the Exchange, and, on May 31, 2013, the Company presented its Plan to the Exchange. On June 13, 2013, the Exchange accepted the Plan and granted the Company an extension until August 31, 2013 along with subsequent extensions to November 30, 2013, January 31, 2014 and April 30, 2014.


During the Plan Period, the Company will be subject to periodic review by the staff of the Exchange. Failure by the Company to demonstrate progress consistent with the Plan during the Plan Period or to regain compliance by the end of the Plan Period could result in the Exchange initiating delisting proceedings.
