The proposed rule change that will enable Nasdaq to raise its rates sounds unfair and like a very bad idea, especially if Nasdaq will be bundling news releases and EDGAR services into the increase. We believe it is vital that all companies have a choice of wire services as well as choice of companies to use for their EDGAR services without having to pay twice.
It is difficult enough to run a small public company profitably without these kind of increases which we basically have no control over. Further, fair competition is necessary to ensure that we are getting the best value for our shareholders. Please reconsider.
