上市公司炒作转型区块链,无视警告被摘牌

纳斯达克(Nasdaq)将于周四将Long Blockchain公司的股票退市,此前数月,该公司股价因改头换面、转向区块链而飙升。

该公司周二宣布了该交易所的决定,截至发稿时,该公司股价已下跌逾37.14%,至约1.10美元。而在去年12月该公司公开宣布转向加密货币和区块链服务后,其价格一度飙升至近10美元。

根据新的声明,Long Blockchain在2月份曾警告说,它将就纳斯达克退市其股票的决定提出上诉,但最终证明这一过程并不成功。

长岛区块链公司没有回复记者的置评请求。

今年2月,Long Blockchain就曾表示,它有被摘牌的风险——这是该公司的第二次此类事件,在10月份纳斯达克发出过类似警告。纳斯达克的规定要求上市公司的市值需连续10个工作日内保持在3500万美元以上——截至发稿时,Long Blockchain的市值约为1124万美元。

随后披露的信息显示,纳斯达克的员工认为Long Blockchain对其投资者不够坦诚——这是该公司在今年2月发表的同一封信中强烈质疑的一个决定。

根据周二的声明,Long Blockchain将继续推进其计划,包括此前宣布的收购一家位于英国的公司。

该公司补充称:“从2018年4月12日起,该公司的普通股将在OTC Markets Group Inc.运营的Pink Current Information tier中进行交易和报价。”

Nasdaq will delist the shares of Long Blockchain on Thursday, a move that comes months after the company's price soared following a name change and pivot to blockchain.

The firm, which trades under the ticker LBCC, announced the exchange's decision on Tuesday, sending the stock price down more than 37.14% to about $1.10 as of press time. That represents a notable change of fortune, considering that the price nearly hit $10 after its publicly announced pivot toward cryptocurrency and blockchain services in December.

Long Blockchain warned back in February that it planned to appeal a decision to delist the stock, a process that ultimately proved unsuccessful, according to new statements.

The company said on April 10:

"The Company appealed this determination and a hearing was held on March 22, 2018. Following this appeal, the Hearings Panel determined to uphold the Staff's decision. Accordingly, trading of the Company's shares will be suspended on the Nasdaq Capital Market at the opening of business on April 12, 2018."

Long Blockchain did not respond to requests for comment.

In February, Long Blockchain revealed that it was at risk of being delisted - the second such occurrence for the firm, given that it faced similar warnings from Nasdaq in October. Nasdaq's rules require that a listed company's market capitalization remain above $35 million for ten business days in a row - as of press time, LBCC's market capitalization is roughly $11.24 million.

Subsequent disclosures revealed that Nasdaq staffers believed Long Blockchain wasn't being forthright with investors - a determination the company sharply disputed in the same letter, published in February.

"The notification letter stated that the staff believed that the Company made a series of public statements designed to mislead investors and to take advantage of general investor interest in bitcoin and blockchain technology, thereby raising concerns about the company's suitability for exchange listing," the company said at the time. "The company strongly disagrees with the staff's determination and, accordingly, has appealed to a Hearings Panel."

According to Tuesday's statement, Long Blockchain plans to continue pressing ahead with its plans, including a previously announced acquisition of a U.K.-based company.

"Effective April 12, 2018, the Company's common stock will be eligible for trading and quotation on the Pink Current Information tier operated by the OTC Markets Group Inc.," the company added.
