On June 1, 2004, Perini 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 Start Printed Page 326331934 (“Act”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder, to withdraw its Common Stock, $1.00 par value, and Associated Series A Junior Participating Cumulative Preferred Stock Purchase Rights (“Securities”), from listing and registration on the American Stock Exchange LLC (“Amex” or “Exchange”).
The Board of Directors (“Board”) of the Issuer unanimously approved a resolution on March 10, 2004 to withdraw the Issuer's Securities from listing on the Amex, and to list the Securities on the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”). The Issuer states that the trading of its Securities on the Amex ended at the close of trading on March 31, 2004. The Securities began trading on the NYSE on April 1, 2004. The Board states the reason for delisting its Securities from the Amex and listing on the NYSE is (1) to provide a market that the Issuer believes can better absorb the increased public float resulting from the Issuer's recent secondary offering of the Common Stock; and (2) potentially increase the trading volume in the Common Stock.
The Issuer stated in its application that is has met the requirements of Amex Rule 18 by complying with all applicable laws in the State of Massachusetts, in which it is incorporated, and with the Amex's rules governing an issuer's voluntary withdrawal of a security from listing and registration.
The Issuer's application relates solely to the withdrawal of the Securities from listing on the Amex, and shall not affect its continued listing on the NYSE or its obligation to be registered under Section 12(b) of the Act.
