RE: Rule Amendments for Foreign Private Issuer Semi-Annual Reporting
DATE: February 22, 2016
The New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE” or the “Exchange”) has amended its rules set forth in Sections
103.00 and 203.03 of the NYSE Listed Company Manual to require NYSE listed foreign private issuers to
submit a Form 6-K to the SEC containing semi-annual unaudited financial information no later than six
months following the end of the company’s second fiscal quarter. The Form 6-K must include (i) an
interim balance sheet as of the end of its second fiscal quarter and (ii) a semi-annual income statement
that covers its first two fiscal quarters. If the issuer fails to file its semi-annual financial statements
within the prescribed time period, the issuer will be subject to the late filer rules set forth under Section
802.01E of the Listed Company Manual.
The revised rule text can be found at http://www.sec.gov/rules/sro/nyse/2016/34-77198-ex5.pdf.
Please submit the Form 6-K in the form filed with the SEC to [email protected] promptly after it
has been filed.
