Novell Receives Additional NASDAQ Notice

Filed under

Novell today announced that, as expected, it received an additional notice of non-compliance from the staff of the NASDAQ Stock Market due to the delay in filing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007, as required by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14).

As previously announced, Novell received notices of non-compliance from NASDAQ on Sept. 14, 2006 and Jan. 22, 2007 due to the delay in filing its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2006 and its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2006, respectively. Novell has delayed the filing of its periodic reports pending the completion of the review by its Audit Committee of the Company's historical stock-based compensation practices.

In response to the first notice of non-compliance, Novell requested a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel"). On Jan. 9, 2007, the Panel granted Novell's request for continued listing subject to the requirements that Novell 1) provide the Panel with certain information relating to the Audit Committee's review on or about March 1, 2007, which was submitted to the Panel, and 2) become current in its delinquent reports and file any necessary restatements by March 13, 2007.

In connection with the call for review, the Listing Council has provided Novell with the opportunity to make an additional submission for the Listing Council's consideration by May 4, 2007.

Justin Steinman may be a nice guy, but he needs to learn that exaggerating one's open source bonafides, especially when said bonafides are in serious question, is bad form in open source. Talking about how much money you spend on open source (especially when it's not true), is doubly gauche. It just doesn't win the kinds of friends that Novell desperately needs.

Justin managed to fail on several different levels, which is impressive. Here are two.

  • Turris Omnia: high-security, high-performance, open-source router
    An Indigogo campaign was recently launched for the Turis Omnia, promising backers a high-security, high-performance, open-source router. “With powerful hardware, Turris Omnia can handle gigabit traffic and still be able to do much more,” the company said. “You can use it as a home server, NAS, printserver, and it even has a virtual server built-in.”

  • PuppetLabs Introduces Application Orchestration
    Everybody loves Puppet! Or at the very least, an awful lot of people USE Puppet and in the IT world, “love” is often best expressed by the opening of one’s wallet. I know, in the FOSS world wallets are unnecessary, and Puppet does indeed have an Open Source version. However, once one gets to enterprise-level computing, a tool designed for enterprise scale is preferable and usually there is a cost associated. Puppet was originally started as an open source project by Luke Kanies in 2005, essentially out of frustration with the other configuration management products available at the time. Their first commercial product was released in 2011, and today it is the most widely used configuration management tool in the world with about 30,000 companies running it. According to our own surveys, better than 60% of Linux Journal readers use some form of Puppet already and you must like it too as it regularly finishes at or near the top in Readers’ Choice awards.
