TerraForm Global (GLBL) Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Letter
BETHESDA, Md., May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TerraForm Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:GLBL), a global owner and operator of clean energy power plants, today announced that it received a notification letter on May 17, 2016 from a Director of Nasdaq Listing Qualifications. The notification letter stated that because TerraForm Global has not yet filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 (the “1Q2016 10-Q”), and because it remains delinquent in filing its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the “2015 10-K”), TerraForm Global is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
The notification letter stated that TerraForm Global has until May 31, 2016 to submit a plan to Nasdaq as to how it plans to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements. TerraForm Global intends to submit a compliance plan on or prior to that date. If the Nasdaq staff accept TerraForm Global’s plan, they can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the 2015 10-K (the initial delinquent filing), or until September 26, 2016, to regain compliance. TerraForm Global may regain compliance at any time during the extension period upon filing with the SEC the 1Q2016 10-Q and the 2015 10-K, as well as all subsequent required periodic financial reports that are due within that period.
If the staff does not accept TerraForm Global’s plan, TerraForm Global will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
The Nasdaq notification letter has no immediate effect on the listing of TerraForm Global’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.
