Frequently Asked Questions
  Listing Council Decision 2003-15
Identification Number 665
Rule 4310(c)(14): The issuer shall file with NASDAQ all reports and other documents required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Annual reports filed must contain audited financial statements.
 
Issue: The company had not filed its Form 10-K or the past two Forms 10-Q and did not provide an estimated date for filing these SEC reports.
 
Determination: The company was properly delisted for failure to comply with the filing requirement. The Listing Council takes seriously the requirement to file accurate and reliable financial statements and the concomitant purpose to provide investors with current information regarding the company. Investors in securities listed on NASDAQ are entitled to assume that issuers of those securities will promptly and accurately comply with their reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In this case, however, investors did not have access to accurate financial information regarding the company for more than one year. Furthermore, in the absence of accurate and reliable financial statements, Staff was unable to determine if the company was in compliance with all of the NASDAQ continued listing requirements.

Issue: The bid price of the company’s common stock was below $1 for approximately 21 months. The company planned to effect a 1-for-4 reverse stock split after its annual meeting.
