Verecloud Announces SEC Deregistration(February 13, 2012)
ENGLEWOOD, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/12 -- Verecloud, Inc. (OTCBB: VCLD) today announced its decision to withdraw the registration of its stock with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company intends to file a Form 15 with the SEC to voluntarily deregister its common stock and suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), on or about February 13, 2012. As a result of the filing of the Form 15, the Company's obligation to file certain reports and forms with the SEC, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K, will cease. Other filing requirements will terminate upon the effectiveness of the deregistration, which is expected to occur 90 days after the filing of the Form 15.
The decision to deregister was made by the Company's board of directors after careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of being an SEC reporting company. The Company's board of directors considered many factors in making this decision, including the following:
- the costs, both direct and indirect, associated with the preparation and filing of the Company's periodic reports with the SEC;
- the costs and burden associated with complying with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002;
- the additional demands placed on management and Company personnel to comply with requirements required of registrants;
- the historically low stock price of the Company's common stock;
- the nature and extent of the trading in the Company's common stock; and
- the current level of analyst coverage and minimal liquidity for the Company's common stock.
The board of directors decided that the Company should deregister with the SEC as it believes that the savings that will benefit the Company's shareholders outweigh any advantages of continuing as an SEC registered company. Without the annual accounting expenses, legal costs, and administrative burden relating to SEC reporting obligations and compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Company will be able to significantly reduce its costs and better focus on the day-to-day operations of its business, thereby delivering long-term shareholder value.
The Company will notify the OTC Bulletin Board of its decision to terminate its reporting obligations. As a result, the Company's shares will not continue to be quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company anticipates that its shares will be quoted on the Pink OTC Markets Inc. quotation service. For more information about this service, please see www.pinksheets.com. Once on the Pink Sheets, the Company intends to continue to make available periodic financial information.
A notice about the Company's deregistration will be available on its website at www.verecloud.com.
