CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 22, 2007--Forrester
Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) today announced that it will request a
hearing before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel in response to
the receipt of a Nasdaq Staff Determination letter indicating that the
company is not in compliance with the filing requirements for
continued listing as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14). As
anticipated, the letter was issued in accordance with Nasdaq
procedures when Forrester did not file its annual report on Form 10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2006. Forrester's request for a
hearing will ensure continued trading in Forrester's common stock on
The Nasdaq Stock Market pending the decision of the panel.
As announced on December 19, 2006, the audit committee of
Forrester's Board of Directors is conducting an internal review of
Forrester's stock option granting practices. The audit committee
reported findings to the Board of Directors relating to the conduct of
certain directors, officers, and former officers. The investigation is
ongoing for the purpose of determining the correct measurement dates
for options granted between 1998 and 2006. Forrester will need to
restate its historical financial statements to record additional
charges for compensation expense relating to past stock option grants
and related tax impacts. Forrester is focused on resolving these
issues and plans to file its Form 10-K as soon as possible following
completion of the independent investigation.
