The proposal includes a new eligibility requirement for the OTCBB, a recommendation rule and a disclosure rule.

Thanks for the Smooth Transition on April 1st!
Due to changes in eligibility requirements for foreign equities and ADRs, many of these securities were removed from the OTCBB, while the foreign equities and ADRs which remained received real-time quotes. Nasdaq would like to thank everyone for their cooperation in this effort.
