Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC to Switch Stock Exchange Listing to The NASDAQ Stock Market
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (NYS: VNR) ("Vanguard") announced today its intention to voluntarily transfer its stock exchange listing from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") to The NASDAQ Global Select Market ("NASDAQ"), an exchange of The NASDAQ OMX Group Inc. (NAS: NDAQ) . Vanguard currently expects that its Class A common units will commence trading on the NASDAQ on April 23, 2013 and will continue to be listed under the ticker symbol "VNR." Vanguard's common units will continue to trade on the NYSE until the transfer has been completed.
Scott W. Smith, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented, "After careful consideration, we believe the NASDAQ will provide our unitholders with access to an advanced trading platform and will be a more cost effective platform for Vanguard currently and even more so in the future as we continue to grow. In addition, NASDAQ offers quantitative and qualitative governance standards more beneficial to listed companies with significant retail unitholders, particularly those related to quorum requirements."
"We are proud to welcome Vanguard Natural Resources to NASDAQ's family of premier energy companies," said Bruce Aust, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Client Group, NASDAQ OMX. "Vanguard Natural Resources joins more than 130 companies to transfer their listings to The NASDAQ Stock Market in recent years, and we look forward to supporting VNR and its unitholders in the years to come."
