On November 30, 2004, Plymouth Rubber Company, Inc., 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”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder, to withdraw its class A and class B common stock, $.01 par value (“Securities”), from listing and registration on the American Stock Exchange LLC (“Amex”).
The Issuer states that the reasons it is taking such action to withdraw its Securities from listing and registration on the Amex are as follows: (i) The Issuer's current non-compliance with certain Amex quantitative standards for continued listing; and (ii) the likely inability of the Issuer to regain compliance with Amex quantitative standards, in accordance with a plan of compliance the Issuer submitted to Amex, which the Amex approved in 2003, by the end of the current fiscal year on December 3, 2004. The Issuer states that it is currently considering the alternative over-the-counter markets to trade the Securities.
The Issuer states in its application that it 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 Start Printed Page 75092withdrawal 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 from registration under section 12(b) of the Act, and shall not affect its obligation to be registered under section 12(g) of the Act.
