Mack-Cali To Voluntarily Withdraw Listing From NYSE Arca Equities, Inc. (Formerly The Pacific Exchange), Retains New York Stock Exchange Listing
12/27/2006 Category: Financial
Edison, New Jersey—December 27, 2006—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI) today announced that it intends to voluntarily withdraw the secondary listing of its common stock from NYSE Arca Equities, Inc. ("NYSE Arca"), formerly the Pacific Exchange (the "PCX"). The Company's common stock will continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE"), the Company's principal listing exchange.
Following NYSE Group, Inc.'s recent acquisition of the PCX, Mack-Cali's Board of Directors determined that it was no longer necessary or desirable to maintain common stock listings on two affiliated domestic exchanges. The Board therefore voted unanimously to withdraw from NYSE Arca in order to reduce duplicative administrative expenses and costs.
The Company has notified NYSE Arca of its intent. On or about December 28, 2006, the Company intends to file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission to complete the voluntary delisting of the Company's common stock from NYSE Arca, which then will become effective 10 days after the filing date. The primary listing of the Company's common stock on the NYSE will not be affected by the Form 25 filing or the delisting from NYSE Arca.
Mack-Cali does not believe that withdrawing its listing from NYSE Arca will have any impact on the liquidity of its stock.
