Once-dominant video rental chain Blockbuster is trying its hardest to
prove that it can compete in the 21st century. It is closing down

York Stock Exchange announced that the company would be delisted from
the exchange after the company failed to win shareholder approval for a measure that would boost the company's stock price above $1, the
exchange's minimum. More often than not, a company's delisting is signal of impending demise.
