In the case of an emergency situation (e.g. a technical problem accessing, or in the rare instance where a listed company is not able to use to comply with this notification requirement, notifications can be submitted by calling the NYSE’s Market Watch & Proxy Compliance team and either emailing a copy of the notice.

Removals From Listings

The NYSE publishes two lists of issues pending delisting from the Exchange:

Exchange-initiated delisting
An issue is added to this list upon the Exchange's filing of a Form 25 with the SEC and remains posted until the application to delist the issue becomes effective with the SEC (generally 10 days).

Issuer-initiated delisting
An issue is added to this list one business day after the exchange is notified of the issuer's intent to voluntarily withdraw its listing by filing a Form 25 with the SEC, and remains posted until the issuer's application to delist becomes effective with the SEC.
