SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Notify Technology Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: NTFY) today announced that it will cease its reporting to the Securities and Exchange Commission resulting in the delisting of its common stock from the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company will file a Form 15 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) today, which will result in the immediate suspension of its reporting obligation with the SEC, including its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2010.
An independent committee of the Company's Board of Directors was formed in October 2010 to investigate the potential benefits and risks of terminating the Company's reporting obligations with the SEC. After completing its investigation, the independent committee recommended that the Company take the actions it is announcing today. The independent committee considered a number of factors in making its recommendation including, the limited trading volume of Notify shares, eliminating the significant costs of compliance with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the escalating annual cost of governance and financial expenses associated with compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and other costs associated with being a public company.
The Company's Board of Directors believes that this decision will result in savings to the Company, permit management to focus more completely on the company's business operations, and enable the Company to create more value for its shareholders.
"The decision to suspend our SEC reporting obligation will allow management to better focus on operating and growing the business," said Paul F. DePond, Notify's President and CEO. "For the past several years being a public company has been a distraction for management and provided little benefit to the Company or to shareholders."
