Boards, ownership structure and involuntary delisting from the New York Stock Exchange.

Charitou, A. and Louca, C. and Vafeas, N. (2007) 'Boards, ownership structure and involuntary delisting from the New York Stock Exchange.', Journal of accounting and public policy., 26 (2). pp. 249-262.


This study examines whether the likelihood of becoming involuntarily delisted from NYSE is associated with a firm’s board of directors and ownership characteristics. To this end we compare 161 firms that were delisted from NYSE between 1998 and 2004 to a set of industry and size-matched control firms. Consistent with our expectations, we find that the likelihood of delisting is related to a firm’s governance characteristics. Our results on the importance of the board of directors are new to this setting and add to a large body of evidence linking corporate boards and ownership characteristics to corporate performance
