Sharper Image said it would inform Nasdaq on Sept. 18 that because of a delay in the filing of its quarterly results it is not in compliance with the stock exchange's rules for continued listing.

The gadget merchant said it would be unable to file its quarterly report for the period ended July 31 with the Securities and Exchange Commission pending completion of a previously announced special committee review of stock option practices.
