In October 2008, Nasdaq suspended its minimum market value and closing bid price requirements through Jan. 16, 2009. Nasdaq has now announced that it is extending the suspension, this time through April 19, 2009, citing the lack of improvement in market conditions. The Nasdaq suspension, as well as the NYSE’s minimum continued listing requirements, are discussed in detail in our Dec. 8, 2008, Alert, Nasdaq and NYSE Continued Listing Requirements - A Primer for Turbulent Times.
