Reminder: Eligibility Determination Date is Final for Non-Compliant Issuers

The OTCBB would like to remind all market participants that the Eligibility Determination Date assigned to each issuer is the last trade date in which the issuer will be permitted to be quoted on the OTCBB unless that issuer has demonstrated full compliance with NASD Rule 6530 (Eligibility Rule).

Approximately 30 days prior to the Eligibility Determination Date (60 days in the case of banks and insurance companies), the OTCBB will review each issuer for compliance. If the NASD has not received information demonstrating that the issuer is eligible, the NASD will publish in the Daily List notification of a pending symbol change, whereby the OTCBB will append an "E" as the fifth character of the trading symbol. This will assist market makers in fulfilling their responsibility to provide evidence of compliance to the NASD if they wish to continue to quote the security. At the close of business on the assigned Eligibility Determination date, if the OTCBB has still not received information indicating that the issuer is current in its public reporting obligations pursuant to Rule 6530, the issuer's securities will be ineligible for quotation and subject to removal from the OTCBB. There is no further grace period, extension, or exemption available to any OTCBB issuer after their Eligibility Determination Date.

An Eligibility Determination Date was assigned to each issuer based upon its trading symbol on January 4, 1999. A complete schedule of Eligibility Determination Dates can be found on the OTCBB Eligibility Rule Implementation Schedule .
