  • 17© 2013 Going Concerns – Percentage Breakdown by Market Status Note: The market designation is based on the company’s status as of 7/8/13. As compared to last year's slide, a number of going concerns shifted from OTCBB to Non-Tickered. This shift, in part, was due to the efforts of the SEC's Microcap Fraud Working Group to suspend the trading of registered shell companies. For example, this working group suspended 379 shells in May 2012 and an additional 61 in June 2013. Not all suspended shells filed a going concern, but this effort would also discourage the creation of new shells. Source: Going Concern Review published September 2013 by Audit Analytics.
