On December 14, 2005, Glacier Water Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Issuer”), the Issuer and Glacier Water Trust I, a Delaware business trust (“Trust”) filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), to withdraw its common stock, $.01 par value, and to withdraw the 91/16% cumulative trust preferred securities of the Trust (collectively “Securities”), from listing and registration on the American Stock Exchange LLC (“Amex”) pursuant to Section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder.
On November 30, 2005, the Board of Directors (“Board”) of the Issuer approved resolutions to withdraw the Securities from listing and registration on Amex. The Issuer stated that on November 23, 2005, it received a notice from Amex regarding its non-compliance with certain continued listing standards. The Issuer decided that it is in the best interest of its shareholders to withdraw from listing voluntarily rather than to take steps that would be necessary to remedy the non-compliance. The Issuer stated that it expects the Securities to trade in the Pink Sheets over-the-counter market after the Securities are delisted from Amex.
The Issuer and the Trust stated that they have met the requirements of Amex's rules governing an issuer's voluntary withdrawal of a security from listing and registration by complying with all the applicable laws in effect in the state of Delaware, in which each is incorporated or organized, and by providing Amex with the required documents for withdrawal from Amex.
The application relates solely to the withdrawal of the Securities from listing on Amex and from registration under Section 12(b) of the Act, and shall not affect their obligation to be registered under Section 12(g) of the Act.
