Unquoted Company

Unquoted Company

A publicly-traded company that previously traded on an exchange but no longer does. A company may become unquoted if its market capitalization falls to the point that it no longer meets an exchange's listing requirements. This is an extremely negative sign for a company; an unquoted company may be in danger of ceasing operations. However, its stock price is likely to be low and, if it comes back, an unquoted company can provide a substantial return.
