Potential Sirius Delisting Postponed Until November


Sirius XM Radio caught a lucky break recently when NASDAQ added another three months to a suspension of its delisting rules. With a share price below the $1 minimum price requirement to remain listed on the exchange, the struggling satellite radio broadcaster’s delisting seemed imminent. No longer. Now that NASDAQ has extended the suspension of the $1 minimum price requirement until Monday, April 20, 2009, Sirius (SIRI) has quite a few more months to bolster its flaccid share price. Even if its shares are still trading under $1 on April 20, the company won’t receive a delisting notice until 30 days after that–May 19. Then it will have another 180 days to meet NASDAQ’s minimum price requirement. So Sirius essentially has the better part of the year to set its lands in order. If it’s to be delisted, it won’t happen until mid-November.

UPDATE: As the commenter below notes, Sirius could file for an extension in November. If it were granted, the company would then have another 180 days to meet NASDAQ’s minimum bid requirement, which would take it all the way into 2010.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
