Struggling Net consultancy Breakaway Solutions said that its common stock has been delisted from the Nasdaq. The company, based in Conshohocken, Pa., does not expect the delisting to have any impact on its day-to-day operations. Breakaway assists clients with Web development and creation of Internet strategies, and offers application-hosting services. The company expects to be available to trade through Pink Sheets, effective Thursday. Pink Sheets, a stock quotation service, handles high-risk ventures and isn't regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Internet consulting company falls more than 30 percent after it says fiscal third-quarter earnings will be lower than expected and that it plans to lay off 9 percent of its work force.
Breakaway Solutions said it is delaying the filing Tuesday of its annual report with the Securities and Exchange Commission to "ensure proper factoring of recent restructuring and changes within the company." The company provides clients help with Internet consulting and application hosting. The recent changes include the naming of a new CEO, a new board chairman and the closing of a round of funding. The company has also since moved its headquarters to Philadelphia from Maynard, Mass., and said it would close a few offices and reduce staff to trim costs. The company also said it is committed to achieving profitability and making other administrative cost-cutting measures. Breakaway said the Nasdaq Stock Market has been notified of the filing delay and that it still expects to release first quarter earnings slated for May 15.
The company posts a revenue shortfall and a preliminary loss that exceeds expectations as it seeks to determine some one-time charges and the value of intangible assets.
