Optical Cable Corp. (Nasdaq: OCCF) will change its Nasdaq stock ticker symbol to "OCC" from "OCCF." The company’s stock will trade under the "OCC" ticker symbol beginning at the start of trading on March 31, 2011.

The company has been trading on Nasdaq for 15 years.

The “OCC” ticker symbol matches the name by which the company is best known within the industry. Dropping the “F” also acknowledges that OCC has expanded beyond its initial roots in providing fiber-optic cable to include copper products as well.

Said Neil Wilkin, OCC president and CEO, "We are pleased to announce our ticker change, which reflects that OCC is much more than a fiber-optic cable company. Our new ticker symbol is aligned with the OCC brand and encompasses the expanded offering of fiber-optic and copper cabling and connectivity products we now manufacture and provide. We look forward to building on OCC's strong reputation and industry position by continuing to execute our strategic plan to meet the full range of our customers' needs while creating value for our shareholders."
