GlobeNewswire 11-Aug-2017 4:30 PM
BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 11, 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 August 10, 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 June 30, 2017, this serves as an additional basis for delisting the Companys 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 (the SEC).
On June 30, 2017, the Company announced that the Nasdaq Hearings Panel granted the Company further extensions to regain compliance with Nasdaqs continued listing requirements. Under these extensions, the Companys Class A common stock will remain listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market, subject to the requirement that the Companys Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 be filed with the SEC by July 24, 2017, its annual meeting of stockholders be held by August 24, 2017, its Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2017 be filed with the SEC by August 30, 2017 and its Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2017 be filed with the SEC by September 30, 2017. The Company filed its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 on July 21, 2017 and held its annual meeting of stockholders on August 10, 2017.
The Notification Letter has no immediate effect on the listing of the Companys Class A common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. The Company continues to work to regain compliance with Nasdaqs continued listing requirements as soon as practicable. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will file its Forms 10-Q for the first and second quarters of 2017 and regain compliance with Nasdaqs continued listing requirements on or before the respective deadlines.
