The company has postponed filing its Form 10-K annual report for the company fiscal year ending Feb. 28, 2011, and the 10-Q quarterly report for the quarter ending May 31, 2011, because of questions about accounting rules. The company recently hired new auditors.

If Life Partners submits a plan for coming back into compliance with Nasdaq listing rules, Nasdaq can give the company up to 180 days to regain compliance, the company says.
