Symantec Receives Notification of Deficiency from Nasdaq Related to Delayed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) received on August 10, 2018 a standard notice from Nasdaq stating that, as a result of not having timely filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 29, 2018, Symantec is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Nasdaq notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of Symantec’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. As previously announced, Symantec received a notice of non-compliance from Nasdaq on May 31, 2018 due to delay in the filing of Symantec’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 30, 2018 (the “Form 10-K”). Under Nasdaq’s listing rules, Symantec was permitted to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules.
