More bad news for Circuit City. Its stock is trading so low that it is in danger of being delisted from the New York Stock Exchange.
According to a form Circuit City filed with the SEC Thursday, the NYSE said the company’s stock was “below criteria” because the average closing price was less than $1 per share for the 30 previous days. NYSE requires any company’s minimum average over that time period to be $1.
Circuit City’s stock closed Friday down 4 cents to reach 26 cents.
Now that Circuit City has received the notice, it has six months to get the stock’s act together. As long as the average 30-day closing price is more than $1 sometime during the next six months, it can stay listed.
Circuit City has 10 days to respond to the NYSE that it plans to get its stock back above $1. In the meantime, the company’s CC ticker symbol will be followed by a “.BC” to show it’s below continued listing standards.
Things are not looking up for CC.
