ITEM 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On July 6, 2012, the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) announced suspension of trading of Dynegys common stock. This announcement was followed by written notice on July 9, 2012, that the NYSE had determined to suspend trading in Dynegys common stock immediately on July 6, 2012. The NYSE noted that it reached this decision in view of Dynegys filing of a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, Poughkeepsie Division seeking relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
As previously disclosed, on April 5, 2012, Dynegy was notified by the NYSE that Dynegy was not in compliance with the continued listing criteria under Section 802.01C of the NYSE Listed Company Manual because the average closing price of Dynegys common stock was less than $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day period as of the notification date.
Dynegy does not intend to take any further action to appeal the NYSEs decision and therefore it is expected that Dynegys common stock will be delisted after the completion and approval of the NYSEs application to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Dynegys common stock is currently trading under the symbol DYNIQ in the over-the-counter market.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
