Last week, the company said it it had informed Nasdaq of its intention to delist its Class A common stock from the NASDAQ Capital Market.
This happens about a month after Nasdaq approved Global Brokerage’s application to transfer its stock to the NASDAQ Capital Market exchange, with the securities trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market since the opening of business on November 13, 2017.
Global Brokerage said that it intends to file a Form 25, Notification of Removal from Listing under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on or about December 19, 2017, notifying the SEC of its delisting from the Exchange. The last day of trading on the Exchange will be December 28, 2017.
Global Brokerage’s Board of Directors intends to withdraw its Common Stock from listing on the Exchange as a result of several factors, including the intention to deregister its Common Stock under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and terminate its duty to file periodic reports with the SEC in order to reduce its costs of compliance with the rules of the SEC and of the Exchange.
