Section 3 — Securities and Trading Markets


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


On September 23, 2014, GeoMet, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notification letter from the Listing Qualifications Staff (the “Staff”) of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”) advising the Company that the Staff believes that the Company is a “public shell” and that the continued listing of its Series A Convertible Redeemable Preferred Stock (NASDAQ: GMETP) (the “Preferred Stock”) is no longer warranted.  The Staff believes that the Company no longer has an operating business and, as a result, purchasers of the Preferred Stock do not know definitely what the operating business of the Company will be in the future.  Therefore, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5101, the Staff has determined to apply more stringent criteria for the continued listing of the Preferred Stock.  Accordingly, unless the Company requests an appeal of the Staff’s determination, the trading of the Preferred Stock will be suspended at the opening of business on October 2, 2014 and the Preferred Stock will be removed from listing and registration on NASDAQ.  After consideration of various factors that it considers relevant and significant, the Company has determined that it does not intend to take any action to appeal the Staff’s decision.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
