TerraForm Power Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Letter
BETHESDA, Md., May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TerraForm Power, Inc. (Nasdaq:TERP) (“TerraForm Power” or the “Company”), an owner and operator of clean energy power plants, today announced that on May 12, 2017 it received a notification letter from a Senior Director of Nasdaq Listing Qualifications (the “Notification Letter”). The Notification Letter stated that because the Company has not yet filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 (the “1Q 2017 10-Q”), this serves as an additional basis for delisting the Company’s securities from the Nasdaq Stock Market under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
On March 21, 2017, the Company announced that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel granted the Company an extension until June 30, 2017 to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements with respect to its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, the 1Q 2017 10-Q and its delinquency in holding its annual meeting during the year ended December 31, 2016. The Notification Letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. The Company continues to work to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements as soon as practicable. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements on or before June 30, 2017 or that the Company will be granted any additional extensions to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements.
