Suppose I have a large universe of US stocks and ETFs (3000). Is there any site where I can get free information for tickers that are delisting ?

E.g. recently:

(1) on 9/18/2015, Broadcom (BRCM) announced delisting for effective date 12/31/2016

(2) on 9/17/2015, Ryland Group (RYL) announced delisting for effective date 10/02/2015

(3) on 9/17/2015, Crestwood Midstream (CMLP) announced delisting for effective date 10/01/2015

I can parse websites too.

I'm just looking for information that becomes available on the same day or within 1-2 days of the announcement date (not around the effective date)

You should have this information freely available on EDGAR. It is going to require some parsing and probably human verification (it's not a lot of data). You can query by filing type (i.e DEFM14A / DEFM14C for M&A).

** I'm not sure how accurate your examples are, for instance Broadcom's DEFM14A was filed on 9/28/2015, the M&A announcement was made on May/2015. Moreover (AFAIK), the effective delisting dates are uncertain.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks. this is really great. I don't need the actual delisting dates as much as I need to mark out these stocks for removal. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ the better form is type 25 and 25-NSE, but unfortunately, vast majority of the filings are after the actual date of listing. $\endgroup$
