LianBio (NASDAQ:LIAN) stock is moving on Friday and this is likely tied to the company’s voluntary delisting of its shares from the Nasdaq Exchange.

LianBio announced late last month plans to voluntarily delist shares of LIAN stock. This is the result of the company currently undergoing efforts to wind down its operations.

However, this doesn’t mean that LIAN stock is completely disappearing. Instead, the company notes it expects its shares to trade in private transactions as well as on the OTC Markets Group exchange following the delisting.

It’s also worth mentioning that we’re a few days past the date that LianBio expected its shares to be delisted. The company was originally expecting this to take place on Monday. It’s unclear why the stock is still listed on the Nasdaq or if today’s drop is connected to this.
