In the event the issuer fails to remedy the deficiency within ten business days after receiving notice of the deficiency from the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State may deem that failure to be a refusal and may, until October 11, 1999, require the issuer to register its securities pursuant to subsection A or B of Section 5, 6 or 7 of the Act, as the case may be.
d) The provisions of this Section shall not apply to any security listed or authorized for listing on the New York Stock Exchange or the American Stock Exchange, or that is listed on the National Market System of the Nasdaq Stock Market, or any successor to these entities, or listed or authorized for listing on a national securities exchange, or tier or segment of an exchange, that has listing standards that the federal SEC by rule, on its own initiative or on the basis of petition determines are substantially similar to the listing standards applicable to securities described in this Section, or is a security of the same issuer that is equal in seniority or that is a senior security.
