On October 19, 2005, Tasty Baking Company, a Pennsylvania 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 common stock, $.50 par value, and common stock purchase rights (collectively “Securities”), from listing and registration on the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”).
The Board of Directors (“Board”) of the Issuer approved resolutions on October 6, 2005 to withdraw the Securities from listing and registration on the NYSE and to list the Securities on the Nasdaq National Market (“Nasdaq”). The Board determined that it is in the best interests of the Issuer to list the Securities on Nasdaq.
The Issuer stated in its application that it has complied with NYSE's rules governing an issuer's voluntary withdrawal of a security from listing and registration by providing NYSE with the required documents governing the removal of securities from listing and registration on NYSE.
The Issuer's application relates solely to the withdrawal of the Securities from listing on the NYSE 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.
