Magnetek regains compliance for NYSE listing; Fiserv named Service Provider of the Year

Magnetek regains compliance for NYSE listing

Menomonee Falls-based Magnetek Inc. announced has received notification from the New York Stock Exchange that it has regained compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards.

Magnetek’s reinstatement to listing compliance is due to the company’s compliance with the exchange’s minimum market capitalization standard. In addition to the NYSE’s normal monitoring procedures, the company will be subject to a 12-month follow-up period to ensure that it remains in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards.

Magnetek today also announced the results of a special meeting of its stockholders, who approved an amendment to the company’s restated certificate of incorporation. The amendment authorizes the company’s board of directors to enact a reverse stock split of the company’s common stock at any whole number ratio between 1-for-2 and 1-for-10, on or before Dec. 31, 2010.

The board’s objective in proposing the reverse stock split is to increase the per-share trading price of the company’s common stock, a necessary step towards making the company’s common stock eligible for initial listing on the NASDAQ Global Market or another appropriate U.S. national stock exchange or automated dealer quotation system, in the event it became necessary or otherwise advisable for the company to transfer the listing of its common stock from the NYSE.

"We are pleased to have regained compliance with the New York Stock Exchange listing standards," said Pete McCormick, Magnetek’s chief executive officer. "As a result, the company currently has no plans to take any action with regard to either a reverse stock split or an optional move to another national exchange."
