Virgin Orbit (NASDAQ:VORB) stock is falling on Tuesday after the space travel company received a delisting notice from the Nasdaq.

This delisting notice is the result of Virgin Orbit voluntarily entering Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. As a result, the company no longer meets the qualifications to remain listed on the exchange.

With this, shares of VORB stock and warrants will be suspended from trading starting on April 13. The company intends to appeal the delisting but notes that it can’t stop shares and warrants from being suspended.

Virgin Orbit also warns investors that there’s no guarantee that the appeal will be approved by the Nasdaq. If that happens, VORB stock and warrants will be delisted. Shares of VORB stock will also remain suspended throughout this appeal process.

VORB Stock Movement on Tuesday

Considering that delisting warning, it comes as no surprise that VORB stock is seeing heavy trading today with investors selling shares. As of this writing, over 14 million shares have changed hands. That’s already above the company’s daily average trading volume of about 12.2 million shares.

VORB stock is down 27.3% as of Tuesday morning and down 93% since the start of the year.
