NYSE Rule Change Regarding Dividend Notifications to be Effective February 1, 2018

By | January 19, 2018

As we noted here, the NYSE proposed, and the SEC approved, a rule change to require NYSE listed companies to provide notice to the NYSE at least ten minutes before making any public announcement with respect to a dividend or stock distribution, including when the notice is outside of Exchange trading hours.  In its annual guidance memo to listed companies, the NYSE noted the new rule will be effective February 1, 2018.
