Audacy Common Stock to Delist from NYSE
NYSE Determination Has No Impact on Audacy’s Business Strategy or Operations
Audacy, Inc. (NYSE: AUD; OTC: AUDA) (the “Company” or “Audacy”) today announced that its appeal of the determination by the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) to commence proceedings to delist Audacy’s Class A Common Stock (the “Common Stock”) from the NYSE was not successful. As a result, the NYSE today filed a Form 25 relating to the delisting from the NYSE of its Common Stock with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which will become effective on or about November 10, 2023.
Audacy stock has not been traded on the NYSE since May when the NYSE notified Audacy that it had elected to commence proceedings to delist the Common Stock from the NYSE based on Audacy’s “abnormally low” price levels.
The Common Stock will continue to trade over the counter under the symbol “AUDA.”
The NYSE’s determination has no impact on Audacy’s business strategy or operations. Audacy continues to focus on growing and enhancing its capabilities as a leading, multi-platform audio content and entertainment company, and continues to engage in discussions with its lenders to deleverage its balance sheet and improve its capital structure to position Audacy for long-term growth.
