American Water Star (AWS) has been granted permission to file its figures late by the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). The drinks bottler said yesterday (2 June) that the AMEX has accepted its intentions to rectify its deficiency in reporting obligations.

In April, AWS announced that it was running late in filing its annual report. The delay meant that AWS was no longer in compliance with the continued listing requirements of the AMEX. AWS' listing is being continued pursuant to an extension granted by AMEX.

The extension by AMEX was also predicated on AMW filing its Form 10-KSB on or before the target date of 15 June. AWS said that it is working diligently on a daily basis to file the 2004 10-KSB, adding that it anticipates filing by the target date.
