New World Coffee-Manhattan Bagel, Inc. (Nasdaq: NWCI) yesterday announced that it received a Nasdaq Staff Determination on September 7, 2001 asserting violations of two rules and that its securities are, therefore, subject to delisting from the Nasdaq National Market. New World is filing an appeal, and has requested a hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to review the Staff Determination. There can be no assurance the Panel will grant the Company's request for continued listing.
