CONCORD, Mass., Sept. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (OTCQB: TCCO) today announced its decision to deregister its common stock under Section. 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as well as suspend its reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act.
