Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), covering the proposed initial public offering of approximately 5,882,352 common shares.. NAO expects to launch the initial public offering on Monday, June 2, 2014 before NYSE opening. The common shares have been approved for listing on the New York Stock Exchange, subject to official notice of issuance.
