Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On March 18, 2013, Metals USA Holdings Corp. (the Company) received a letter from the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) notifying the Company that it failed to comply with Sections 204.21 and 401.02 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual because it did not provide at least ten days prior notification to the NYSE of the record date for the Companys upcoming special meeting of stockholders to be held on April 10, 2013, in connection with the previously announced transaction between the Company and Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. (the Special Meeting). Receipt of a letter of this nature from the NYSE is a required disclosure under Item 3.01 of Form 8-K. The Company views this as an isolated incident and makes every effort to comply with all NYSE rules applicable to it.
The record date for the Special Meeting continues to be March 4, 2013. Further information regarding the Special Meeting and the previously announced transaction between the Company and Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. can be found in the definitive proxy statement of the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 11, 2013.
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.
