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

On August 20, 2019, CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. (the "Company") received notice (the “Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that as of August 19, 2019, it is no longer in compliance with NYSE continued listing criteria set forth in Section 802.01C of the Listed Company Manual of the NYSE, which require listed companies to maintain an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over a period of 30 consecutive trading days.

Pursuant to Section 802.01C, the Company has a period of six months following the receipt of the Notice to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement, or until the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders if stockholder approval is required to cure the share price non-compliance, as would be the case to effectuate a reverse stock split. The Company has notified the NYSE of receipt of the notification and its intent to cure the deficiency. The Company is in compliance with all other NYSE continued listing standard rules.

The Company can regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement at any time during the six month cure period if, on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period or on the last day of the cure period, the Company has a closing share price of at least $1.00, and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on such date. If the Company effectuates a reverse stock split following stockholder approval at its next meeting of stockholders to cure the condition, the condition will be deemed cured if the share price promptly exceeds $1.00, and the share price remains above that level for at least the following 30 trading days.

The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s stock, which will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE during the cure period. Additionally, the NYSE notification does not affect the Company’s business operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements, and does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company’s material debt agreements.

A copy of the press release is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein

(August 21, 2019) - CBL Properties (NYSE:CBL) today announced that it received notification from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that as of August 19, 2019, the Company is no longer in compliance with NYSE continued listing criteria, which require listed companies to maintain an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.
The Company intends to pursue measures to cure the share price non-compliance, including through a reverse stock split of the Company's common stock, subject to stockholder approval, no later than at its next annual meeting of stockholders, if such action is necessary to cure the share price non-compliance.
In accordance with NYSE rules, the Company has a period of six months from receipt of the notice to regain compliance with the NYSE’s minimum share price requirement, or until the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders, if stockholder approval is required to cure the share price non-compliance, as would be the case to effectuate a reverse stock split. Under NYSE rules, the Company’s common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the NYSE during this period, subject to the Company’s compliance with other NYSE continued listing requirements.  
Under NYSE rules, CBL can regain compliance at any time during the six-month cure period if on the last trading day of any calendar month during the cure period CBL’s common stock has a closing share price of at least $1.00 and an average closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on the last trading day of that month or on the last day of the cure period.
The NYSE notification has no impact on CBL operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission reporting requirements, and it does not cause an event of default under any of the Company’s material debt or other agreements.
