Descending to the pink sheets



Just great for investors: "the higher costs that accompany increased disclosure and stiffened internal controls [under Sarbanes-Oxley] appear to be driving a growing number of companies to simply withdraw from the major exchanges. Some are going private and others 'going dark,' that is, deregistering their stock with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Instead, their shares are listed on the 'Pink Sheets,' an electronic quotation medium for companies not listed on stock exchanges." (New Jersey Law Journal)
