Delisted explained

 

Approximately 10,000 companies have been delisted from the Australian Stock Exchange (or the state-based exchanges), Newcastle Stock Exchange and Bendigo Stock Exchange over the past 100 odd years, or have had their name changed.

These companies, the date and the reason for the delisting, feature on our website.

As far as is possible, our record for delisted companies is "frozen" at the point of delisting from an exchange. Depending on company developments after delisting, you may find current items in "News & Events" within the company record. You should realise other data within the company record may no longer be valid; the company may subsequently have changed its legal status and even be deregistered. If deregistered, it has ceased to exist.

 

Why was your company delisted?

Most companies are delisted either because they are acquired by another company, they merge with another company or they have solvency problems.

Shareholders should also note that entities do change their name and many have had multiple names. They are then of course listed under their new name and no longer under their previous name.

According to the Australian Stock Exchange Listing Rules, a company may be removed from the official list:

 If it asks to be removed (ASX may impose conditions).

If in the opinion of ASX:

 It breaks a listing rule or is unwilling or unable to comply with a rule

It has no quoted securities

It is appropriate for some other reason

 Following the issue of compulsory acquisition notices and previous suspension of securities under Listing Rule 17.4 or Listing Rule 17.4A.

If it fails to pay listing fees.

Delisting is not the same as failure 

Investors are often confused by company delisting and company failure. They are almost completely unrelated. The majority of companies are delisted for reasons other than failure such as takeover, merger, illiquidity, withdrawal because of listing costs etc.

Most company failures do not result in a delisting. Company failure lies behind many "changes of activity" where companies fail with one activity and formally adopt another. Sometimes a change of name reflects an attempt to disassociate from past failures. Both are classic cases of failure masked by events other than a delisting. The share price usually reflects these failures.

Many small companies fail and actually go into administration, where they are reconstructed and recapitalised. They later emerge with either the same name or a different name. Later there is hardly any sign of the failure. Only the shareholders concerned are painfully aware. Their capital has been savagely diluted and their shares are practically worthless.

Larger companies that fail such as Pasminco, HIH Insurance, ABC Learning, Babcock & Brown are of course eventually delisted. 

 

Finding your company

If your company has been delisted there are three ways of finding it:

  • Search by code (see box above right)
  • Search by company name (see box above left)
  • Click on the appropriate letter of the alphabet (see the alphabet index above)

 

If you are unable to find your company or the information is incomplete or incomprehensible we recommend you send us a message and we will try to assist.

Please bear in mind we are unable to help with private companies, public companies that have never been listed or with companies domiciled outside Australia or New Zealand. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission on 1300 300 630 or the NZ Companies Office on 0508 266 726 may be able to assist you with other companies.
