Dallas, Texas (December 29, 2011) – StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Workstream Inc. (OTCBB: WSTMF) announced yesterday that its Board of Directors has approved the filing of a Form 15 by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to voluntarily deregister its common shares under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company intends to file the Form 15 with the SEC on or about January 6, 2012. The Company is eligible to deregister its common shares because it had fewer than 300 holders of record of its common shares at the beginning of its fiscal year. The Company closed on September 28, 2011, at $0.705, trading in a fifty-two week range of $6.00 – 0.65.
Upon the filing of the Form 15, the Company’s obligation to file certain reports with the SEC, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will immediately be suspended. In addition, following the deregistration, the Company’s common shares will no longer be quoted on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board but will continue to be quoted on the Pink Sheets. The Company expects that the deregistration of its common shares will become effective 90 days after the date of the filing of the Form 15 with the SEC.
Although no longer required by the SEC after deregistration, the Company presently intends to provide current quarterly and annual performance data to its shareholders in accordance with the Alternative Reporting Standards of OTC Pink—Current Information. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will continue to provide such information in the future or that its common shares will continue to be quoted on the Pink Sheets after deregistration of the common shares.
The Company made this decision after careful review of the costs and benefits of being a reporting company. The Company believes that the incremental cost of compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and other reporting requirements does not provide any discernible benefit to the Company and its shareholders and cannot be justified. The savings derived from this change are expected to be financially meaningful, and deregistration is expected to allow management to focus additional attention to delivering shareholder value.
