CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Footwear Group, Inc. (Amex: PXG), (the "Company") announced today that it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") a Form 25 "Notification of Removal from Listing" relating to the delisting of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock") from the NYSE Amex ("Amex"), with the delisting of the Common Stock to be effective ten days thereafter. Accordingly, the Company anticipates that the last day of trading of the Common Stock on Amex will be Thursday, March 10, 2011. Following delisting from Amex, it is expected that the Common Stock will trade on the Pink OTC Market.
Following its delisting from Amex the Company intends to file a Form 15 to deregister the Common Stock under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Upon filing of the Form 15, the Company's obligation to file certain reports, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K, with the SEC will be suspended. The Company expects that the deregistration of its Common Stock will become effective 90 days after filing of the Form 15 with the SEC. Although the Company will no longer file reports with the SEC or be subject to Amex rules for the foreseeable future once the delisting and deregistration of the Common Stock is effective, it intends to continue making information available to stockholders and to observe corporate governance practice as may be required to maintain quotations on the Pink OTC Markets.
