In order to maintain continued listing on the New York Stock Exchange, stock has to maintain a minimum average closing price of $1.00 per share over 30 consecutive trading days. For Midway Games, they've fallen below that, which would have them removed from the listing.
According to the press release, Midway has the standard six months to "cure the definciency." Midway received word today from the NYSE that they have fallen below the standard.
What have they got to bail them out. Hmm. We gave a "good" rating to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Wheelman launches early next year, and Nick said some good things about it. Just trying to be positive here.
Best of luck, Midway.
