(a) On June 30, 2016, Alliance One International, Inc. (the Company) received a notice from NYSE Regulation, Inc.
(NYSE Regulation) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing requirements of the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) under the timely filing criteria outlined in Section 802.01E of the
NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016 (the Form 10-K). Under the NYSE rules, the Company will have six months to file the Form 10-K with the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards at any time prior to such date by filing the
Form 10-K with the SEC. If the Company fails to file its Form 10-K prior to such date, then NYSE Regulation may grant, at its discretion, a further extension of up to six additional months, depending on the specific circumstances. The letter from
the NYSE Regulation also notes that the NYSE Regulation may commence delisting proceedings at any time if the circumstances warrant.
disclosed by the Company in its Form 12b-25/A filed with the SEC on June 29, 2016, on May 25, 2016, the Company filed with the SEC its Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015 (the Form
10-K/A) to amend its Annual Report on Form 10 K for such fiscal year, its amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A for the period ended June 30, 2015 (the Form 10-Q/A) to amend its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for such period, its

Form 10-K/A and Form 10-Q/A were filed to correct errors the Company discovered in its accounting at its Kenya subsidiary; certain details regarding those errors and adjustments are discussed in Note 1A Restatement of Previously Issued
Consolidated Financial Statements of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (As Restated) included in Item 8 of the Form 10-K/A and in Note 1A Restatement of Previously Issued Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of

preparation and completion of the Companys Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016. As a result, the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K within the prescribed time period. The Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon

Regulation that it would be unable to timely file the Form 10-K and as a result would not be in compliance with the NYSEs continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria outlined in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed
Company Manual. The consequences of such non-compliance are described above. The Company intends to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by
the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
