Zynga Gets Noncompliance Notice From Nasdaq

By Dow Jones Business News,

Zynga Inc. ( ZNGA ) said Friday it received a notice from Nasdaq saying it wasn't in compliance with its listing rules after two directors recently left the videogame company's board.

Nasdaq listing rules require that the company's board be comprised of a majority of independent directors, Zynga said in a regulatory filing.

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg decided not to run for reelection to Zynga's board, reducing the board's size to seven, Zynga said in an April regulatory filing. The company said at the time it planned to increase its board size after it had identified and elected new board members.

Zynga said Friday that its board is actively recruiting potential candidates, and that it expects to regain compliance with the listing rule in the coming months. Zynga has until July 27 to submit a plan to Nasdaq, after which Nasdaq may grant an extension of up to Dec. 9 to regain compliance.
