What is a stock delisting?
A stock delisting occurs when a publicly traded company's shares are removed from the stock exchange. This could happen for various reasons, such as the company failing to meet listing requirements, going private, or undergoing a merger or acquisition. When a stock is delisted, it can no longer be bought or sold on the exchange. However, it may still be possible to trade the shares over-the-counter (OTC) or through private transactions, depending on the circumstances.
By following these steps, you'll be able to gather more information and make informed decisions about delisted stocks or shares.
