TerraForm Power Announces Receipt of Nasdaq Letter

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TerraForm Power, Inc. (Nasdaq:TERP) (the “Company”), an owner and operator of clean energy power plants, announced today that on September 8, 2016 it received a notification letter from a Director of Nasdaq Listing Qualifications (the “Notification Letter”). The Notification Letter stated that due to the Company’s non-compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Filing Rule”), the Company would be delisted from The Nasdaq Global Select Market at the opening of business on September 19, 2016 unless the Company requests a hearing on the determination by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on September 15, 2016. As previously announced, the Company has not filed its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2016 or its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2016 (collectively, the “Delayed Filings”).

On September 9, 2016 the Company requested a hearing and also requested a stay of the delisting pending the hearing. Because of this request, the delisting of the Company’s common stock will automatically be stayed for at least 15 calendar days. If the hearings panel grants the Company’s request for a stay, it can postpone any delisting action until the panel’s determination following the hearing. Hearings are typically scheduled to occur approximately 30-45 days after the date of the hearing request. At the hearing, the Company plans to present its plan to regain compliance with the Filing Rule and to request the continued listing of its common stock on The Nasdaq Global Select Market pending such compliance. There can be no assurance that the panel will grant the Company’s requests.
