On March 22nd, NASDAQ OMX Group announced it has modified its rules to permit certain disclosures through either a press release or by filing a Form 8-K. As a result, a company may satisfy NASDAQ's requirement to disclose receipt of notification that it is non-compliant with a listing standard or that it has received a Public Reprimand letter, as well as certain other required disclosures, by filing a Form 8-K, where required by SEC rules, and does not have to also issue a press release. However, companies that are late in filing a periodic report with the SEC must still issue a press release, in addition to filing any required Form 8-Ks. NASDAQ Issuer Alert No. 2010-003.
