The New York Stock Exchange acquired the American Stock Exchange in 2008.  It is now known as NYSE-MKT. The NYSE-MKT is an attractive exchange for solid micro and small-cap companies.  NYSE-MKT has four different listing and public shareholder standards with a number of differing combinations within.  As a result, the NYSE-MKT listing requirements offers flexibility to companies operating in different market sectors.

The listing requirements can sometimes be confusing and waivers can be applied for in certain circumstances when a company desiring to list is strong in all listing categories but for one.
