Delisting

Definition:

Taking your company public is commonly also referred to as "listing it". It gets placed on the long list of already public companies. Un-doing that is delisting. That is, the company is no longer public either because it went bankrupt, violated minimum pricing covenants on an exchange like NASDAQ or it got bought.
