Zombie

A publicly-traded company that continues operations despite a merger or bankruptcy.

However, a few bottom feeders may be interested in a zombie if they believe that it can restructure and become profitable.

zombie

A company that remains in business even though it is technically bankrupt and almost surely headed for the graveyard.
