Issuer Delisting; Notice of Application of American Power Conversion Corporation to Withdraw its Common Stock, $.01 par value, from Listing and Registration on the Pacific Exchange, Inc.
File No. 1-12432
July 1, 2005
On June 16, 2005, American Power Conversion Corporation, a Massachusetts corporation, ("Issuer"), filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("Commission"), pursuant to Section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Act")1 and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder,2 to withdraw its common stock, $.01 par value ("Security"), from listing and registration on the Pacific Exchange, Inc. ("PCX").
On June 9, 2005, the Board of Directors ("Board") of the Issuer approved a resolution to withdraw the Security from listing and registration on PCX. In making the decision to withdraw the Security from PCX, the Board considered the following: (i) the Issuer maintains the principal listing for the Security on the Nasdaq National Market System ("Nasdaq"); and (ii) the maintenance of multiple listings requires incremental time, effort, and expense in ensuring compliance with the rules and disclosure requirements of both Nasdaq and PCX.
The Issuer stated in its application that it has complied with PCX rules by providing PCX the required documents governing the withdrawal of securities from listing and registration on PCX.
The Issuer's application relates solely to withdrawal of the Security from listing on PCX and from registration under Section 12(b) of the Act,3 and shall not affect its obligation to be registered under Section 12(g) of the Act.4
