NYSE Threatens EXCO Resources with Stock Delisting – 4th Time

EXCO Resources continues to be a company in trouble. The company flirted with bankruptcy for some time, but in the end they effectively turned over control of the company to creditors this past summer in order to stay out of bankruptcy court (see EXCO Issues 2.7M Shares of New Stock in Lieu of Paying $23M). As we pointed out in early November, the turnaround expert EXCO hired to continue keeping the company out of bankruptcy flew the coop (see EXCO Resources Heading for Bankruptcy, Turnaround Expert Resigns). EXCO is now in trouble with the New York Stock Exchange–for the fourth time! Two times in the past the New York Stock Exchange notified the company it had fallen below the NYSE’s standards for listing and trading the stock because the share price was too low (see EXCO Resources Stock Threatened Again with De-Listing by NYSE). EXCO was able to fix the low stock price by crafting a reverse stock split–combining outstanding shares into fewer shares worth more. Then in August, NYSE threatened EXCO with delisting a third time, but for a different reason: Because EXCO’s market capitalization has fallen below $50 million (see EXCO Resources Receives 3rd NYSE Notice of Delisting). EXCO pulled their bacon out of the fire with NYSE in August by cutting a deal that allows them until February 2019 (yes, 2019) to get company valuation back up over $50 million. So why the new/fourth threat from NYSE? Same reason as the first two times–the stock price is once again in the toilet–well below $1 per share. We doubt they can do another reverse stock split to save the share price this time…
