Braskem to be delisted from New York Stock Exchange

  5/16/2019 - New York, NY - The New York Stock Exchange has suspended trading of Braskem's American depository shares and will initiate delisting procedures because the Brazilian petrochemical producer will not be able to file its 2017 annual report with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by an extended deadline this week, Braskem said. "The board of directors and senior management will continue to dedicate significant efforts and resources and are working towards filing the 2017 20-F and our annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2018, as expeditiously as possible, in order to resume trading of the company's ADS on the NYSE," Braskem said in a statement. Braskem's shares will be available to trade over the counter "as soon as possible." A 20-F is an annual report that must be filed by all foreign private issuers with shares traded on U.S. exchanges by certain deadlines. Braskem missed a March deadline and the New York Stock Exchange extended it to May 16. Last week, Pedro Teixeira Carvalho, Braskem's investor relations officer, said during the company's quarterly earnings call that the company was working hard to file the report on time, but could not be sure of meeting the deadline. He said Braskem needed to assess "consistency of the control environment," and a 20-F has an internal controls component that needs review "to make sure that we are reporting directly to the market." The company's 20-F for 2018 meets the requirements, but the 2017 report does not, and it must be filed before Braskem can file the 2018 report. "We'll still be trading on the OTC market, but the process is suspended until the appeal is evaluated and analyzed and decided by the NYSE, which I mean could take some time," Carvalho said. "We have seen a precedent where it took roughly six months for that to happen but as far as I know, there is no established time period for that to happen." If the company files the 20-F while the appeal is under way, Braskem's ADRs would be relisted on the NYSE, he added.
