On Tuesday,Satyam Computer said it would delist its ADS from the NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam due to financial and legal pressures and has started the process for the same.
The company,however,does not presently intend to delist from the BSE,NSE or NYSE,it said.
“Upon careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of its listing on the Euronext Amsterdam,the board of directors of the company has come to the conclusion that the financial and legal burdens of a listing no longer justify a listing on the Euronext Amsterdam,” Satyam said.
Satyam Computer,after facing a turbulent phase since January this year,is all set to be acquired by Tech Mahindra in a Rs 2,900-crore deal that includes a 20 per cent open offer to the public.
