Unlisted Company

Unlisted Company

A company with stock that is not traded on an exchange. Very often, unlisted companies are very small and do not trade on an exchange because they do not meet market capitalization requirements. Unlisted companies may be traded informally (theoretically, one may stand on a street corner and sell his/her stocks), but the term usually refers to companies traded through a dealer network. See also: Over-the-counter.
