NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dial Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: DIAL) (the "Company"), a leader in the distribution of and sale of national audio content, announced today that it has notified the Nasdaq Stock Market ("NASDAQ") of its intention to voluntarily delist from NASDAQ's Global Market.
The decision to voluntarily delist from NASDAQ was taken following a review by the Company's Board of Directors, which determined that a delisting would be in the best interests of the Company. In reaching this conclusion, the Company's Board of Directors considered numerous factors, including, among other things, the compliance costs and obligations that result from the maintenance of the Company's listing on NASDAQ, the relatively limited historical volume of trading in the Company's common stock, the applicable federal securities laws and the applicable NASDAQ rules.
The Company currently anticipates that it will file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on or about November 26, 2012 to commence the delisting process. It is expected that the delisting will take effect on or about December 6, 2012. The Company has not arranged for listing and/or registration of its common stock on another national securities exchange. Following delisting, the Company's common stock will no longer trade on NASDAQ under the symbol "DIAL", and it is expected that, if one or more market makers determine to make a market in our common stock, the Company's common stock will then instead trade on the OTC Pink Sheets.
