As the CEO of a Nasdaq listed company I am opposed to the proposed rule which will increase fees to my company, as well as influence the decision of which firm is used to submit press releases. Each company should be making it's own decision for the firm which will process the information to the media. There is already too much expense forced upon stock companies without the Nasdaq changing the rules also. This rule will only help Nasdaq, not the listed companies.
